Lovin Care for Kerri~(Twin Terri)

Let’s get KK (Kerri) home~~~~her twin sister( Terri) needs her along with all her loved ones!

After losing her dad on January 22nd, whom she’d been taking care of for 2 years, KK (Kerri) was admitted to the hospital for observation on January 25, 2017. She was hit with a second blow! KK(Kerri) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which metastasized to her lungs, indicating stage 4 cancer. Since then, her cancer has moved to her intestines, and continues to aggressively grow. The doctors told her she had approximately 3 years to live.

Needless to say, our family is devastated and heartbroken with this news. She is 56 years young! KK(Kerri) is a wonderful mother to Kyle (KP), a caring daughter to her mom (Granny Goose), a deeply loving sister to her forever twin Terri (Bearski), her brothers Steve and Brian, her brother-in-law Gene (Genie Weenie) and a very fun and dedicated auntie to her niece and nephews.
Through it all, KK(Kerri) continues to fight for her life, staying positive, and refuses to give up!
KK’s endured several setbacks these last 3 months (way too many to mention). Chemo has been rescheduled several times. She has a lot of additional medical issues. She will remain on a TPN (total parenteral nutrition) which is a method of feeding that bypasses the gastrointestinal tract. It’s used when a person cannot or should not receive feeding or fluids by mouth. Without the TPN, she will not have any way to get the necessary nutrition she needs. Kerri's specialized care cost is approximately $10,000 a month, insurance DOES NOT pay for the TPN or any form of skilled nursing, assisted living, or hospice care because of the TPN.
Her son, Kyle (age 24) has taken a leave of absence from his work in order to help his mom as much as possible.
So many family and friends who have patiently waited to help KK (Kerri) have asked, “What can we do? We feel so helpless!”.
We our reaching out and humbly asking if you could find it in your hearts to help us bring our sweet KK(Kerri) to her home that she loves so much and give her the care she properly needs. It takes a village and we our asking our village to please, please, show their love and support and help her with the nursing care cost.
KK has always been such an important part of all of our lives and she needs the boundless love, prayers and support of all those whose lives she has touched and those who are moved by her journey.
Any support would be so greatly appreciated!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
