Help Maggie fight...

My BFF Maggie was diagnosed with colon cancer in September 2013, after months of treatment she beat it but it has since returned. As if that wasn't enough to deal with she has been given so many additional obstacles to overcome. These additional issues would be more than anyone should have to deal with but add them to someone trying to fight for their life and it just makes it that much harder.

In the past 30 days she has found out that because she went back to work part time so that she could keep her medical insurance, that her long term disability would reduce the amount it was paying her. She is physically unable to work full time and is unsure how she is going to make ends meet. She has also learned that the financial aid she was receiving to cover her copays has discontinued because of her return to work status. Her copays are $75 a visit and she typically has 3 appointments a week. Without the financial assistance she is reconsidering her treatment plan. Another issue is that she filed her taxes and found out the social security she received while she was unable to work was taxable and now owes the government money. As if this wasn't enough her washer caught fire last night in her home.  Luckily she was home and able to stop it before it caused any additional damage but she does need a new washer. 

Not only is Maggie my BFF she is also my 3rd sister (technically 1st since I met her before my actual sisters), she was my maid of honor in my wedding and she is the godmother to my son. Anyone that knows her would tell you that she is willing to put aside whatever she is going through to help someone. They would also know that she would never ask for help herself, no matter how much she needs it, and that is why I am asking for her.

Please help with any amount you can.

Thanks for your support,
