Hope for Fern

$5,000 goal

Campaign created 8 months ago
I am starting a fundraising for Fern Johnagin who lives in Rogersville Tn, she has had one lung removed a little over a year ago after having radiation and chemo treatments for lung cancer. Now she has a growth in the only lung she has and her condition is deteriorating. She has an appointment at Duke university medical center in Durham NC on the 3rd of December.
She has been told that she can't have a biopsy by one doctor and another says can have one done, so she is going to Duke to see what they can do and if she may need a lung transplant. Please help with what you can, Fern is on fixed income, she has insurance, but as you know insurance doesn't cover all of the expenses. Just the trip to Duke alone will be a burden on her. My name is Steve Minor, I live in Elizabethton tn. Me and Fern have been very close friends for several years. God bless all that help her...I will post updates as we know more. We have already agreed on me being a donor if Fern needs a transplant. UPDATE Fern has three choices as it now stands, clinical trial, experimental therapy or immunotherapy. She is leaning towards immunotherapy, which I'm sure isn't cheap. The last resort, may be a lung transplant, but as it is, I doubt her insurance (medicare) may not cover it. Please help if you can, or at least share this campaign. Thank you.
