Peggy's Breast Cancer Fund

My mom's name is Peggy Thornburg.  She recently has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Invasive Lobular Carcinoma.    With the right treatment there is a positive outlook with a Survival rate range from about 77% to 93%.   My two daughters adore her and would be crushed if something happened to her.  
My mom does have insurance but has a high deductable and is already being asked to provide large amounts of money before she can move on to her different stages of treatment.   I wish our healthcare system wasn't so broken and just because someone has a terrible disease they are forced into a massive debt.  Any amount of $ will help and we will be truly grateful!!  We love my mom and #1 important thing is for her to be cancer free.  I just don't want her to come out of this and be faced with the stresses of medical bills and debt.  Thank you to all that help.
*UPDATE*  After surgery we got some disappointing news.  The Pathology reports show a second type of cancer that is agressive.  Out of the 23 lymphnodes collected, 22 had cancer.  They will begin radiation immediately.  Thank you all for your support!  My parents are so grateful for the help!!
