Laty's Fight Against Cancer

Our beautiful sister Lety Zertuche was diagnosed with bladder cancer 2 years ago. It was then that she started the fight against this horrible disease. She underwent several treatments which were successful only for a period of time. While going to her routine check up, she got the news that the tumors had come back with a vengeance! Everything happened so fast, suddenly she had to have surgery to remove her bladder, uterus, ovaries and appendix. That's when we got the news that her cancer was at a stage 4. She remained in the hospital about 2 months, where she overcame many setbacks. It was then that she had to muster up all the strength, you see she has always been afraid of needles. Imagine that ! However with much faith, prayer and all the love and support of family and friends, our sister is still fighting strong!!
She has undergone radiation treatment and will soon start chemotherapy. Needless to say it has been tough and now the biggest challenge is ahead.
On top of that the dreaded bills have started piling up!! As most of you know, Lety worked with EPISD for many years and has been unable to return to work since February. She is no longer receiving any pay and her husband's income is not sufficient to cover all the medical expenses and their own bills.
This is why we are humbly requesting your financial support.
Cancer itself is difficult enough to have to fight, now imagine having to face the financial burden at the same time!
