Be A Hero ! Help Me Save A Life ❤️

I set up this go fund me page for my best friend Kat. We have been inseparable since we were 5. She is the sister I never had. Recently her boyfriend brought her to the ER. She had all the classic symptoms of pregnancy but she had her tubes tied 15 years ago. So of course they were worried about a tubular pregnancy. Turns out she was not pregnant. After a bunch of tests, the doctor came in and said I hate giving bad news to good people and you seem like good people. He diagnosed her with Renal Cell Cancer in her left kidney. Cancer is such a scary word. I can't even begin to imagine how it must have felt to have that bomb just dropped into your life. In a second your whole life has changed. Thinking about your children and not knowing if you'll live to see them grow up. She said all she heard was white noise. If they do a biopsy they will infect the whole kidney, but surgery would remove it completely. If she waits she's a ticking time bomb and eventually it WILL KILL HER. She is the only one in her household without insurance and they want money up front to perform the surgery. After that she can make payments. Kat is a 37 year old mother of two beautiful children. For many years she and her boyfriend have opened their home to provide a safe and loving place for so many foster children, temporary and permanent. She is the kindest, most giving person I know. This amazing woman has been by my side through everything. The loss of my son, and so many other tragedies as well as celebrations in my life. She has played a huge part in molding me into the woman I am today because of the years of love and support she has given me and my own children. I would do anything to take her worries and fears away. But I can't. I will however do EVERYTHING in my power to save her life. We all want many more years with this women who has such a love for life. She is always willing to help anyone in need. Now she needs all of us to help her. I hope that you will make a donation so she can continue her journey in life. Every bit helps so please find it in your hearts to help this amazingly strong, beautiful woman live so she can see her children grow up and continue to help so many other kids in need. Thank you so much for taking the time from your busy lives to read about Kat's story and my mission to save her. ❤️LET'S GO KICK CANCER'S ASS !!!!!
