31028988_1530571924209005_r.jpegThis cancer journey has been a long road with a lot to handle. It's been eight years since my original colon cancer diagnosis; two years ago I was diagnosed as terminal. Cancer does not discriminate and while I have gone through many chemo and radiation treatments, along with other alternative treatments, I still continue to fight, but now in a different way: I have been placed on at home hospice care. I will no longer be doing treatments or possible surgeries. 

Unfortunately, my financial support for living and medical expenses have run out and I find myself once again having to rely on the generosity of others. My hope is that by sharing my journey transparently, you have been blessed in some way. For me, I have been tremendously blessed by the encouragement and support I have experienced by all of you. The added expenses of planning for a beautiful Celebration of Life is accutely upon me now; I could definitely use some help with that.

31028988_1530571950958571_r.jpegIt is with a humble heart that I reach out and ask for help, once again. I am thrilled with my ability and strength to fight, but the financial strain this has placed on me and my Three Little Birds is starting to take its toll. As I have progressed with my new Medicaid insurance in Nevada, I have found that the biggest issue with medical expenses are the prescriptions and drugs I must take. I have consistently been paying about $800 out of pocket, which causes my living expenses to take a huge hit. My goal with this GoFundMe is to save up money that I can save and draw from as I need it for living expenses, to plan for future Celebration of Life expenses, and (every once in awhile) be able to travel to see my daughter in Las Vegas as she embarks on her first year at UNLV and their nationally renowned debate team...health permitting.

Basically, I need help. I want to spend as much time as I have left not worrying about money to live and to enjoy every second I have in this world.

If you can give, I would appreciate it. If you cannot give but can pass this link along, it would be a huge help. As always, please follow my journey on Facebook by friending me at "Emily Fay Reese " and on Twitter at @mlereese . I love using my journey to help others be encouraged and to know that they are not alone.

Thank you for caring for others. As I continue, I will keep fighting for health care and to save Medicaid, Social Security, and Medicare. Using my story to help others is a goal of mine while I can still do it, and by supporting me, you are also supporting others out there who cannot fight for themselves.

Live Life, Love Life, Impact Others,
Emily Fay Reese
