Jeannie's Fighting Lymphoma

Here is the story of my momma:
From her diagnoses in August, and through her first 5 chemo treatments, she has kept a smile on her face.  Jeannie is the mother of 2, stepmom of 2, grandmother of 8 and fiancé to Bryant.  She has a LOT to fight for.  In August she went to her PCP for swelling in her throat/neck and symptoms similar to bronchitis.  However, within 24 hours she was admitted to the hospital and she was diagnosed with aggressive large B-cell non-hodgkins lymphoma.  The tumor in her chest was 9cm and pressing against the vessels to her heart.  An aggressive cancer has required aggressive treatment.  All the time she is laughing, joking, and keeping everyone's spirits high whonis around her.  She is the definition of a fighter,  the definition of strength, and the definition of  love. Unfortunately she just began a new job 3 months prior to her diagnoses and so was denied short term disability.  She has zero income aside from the less than $200 a month in food stamps she qualified for, and though her job is waiting for her, it is still unclear when she will be able to return.  Jeannie is still undergoing chemo treatments, and the medical bills are rolling in.  She has to travel 30-45 min into town for her treatments and check-ins, and treatments are 5x per week every 3 weeks.  In addition, she goes 2x per week following her treatment week. Family helps where they can, but it isn't enough.  Please consider helping us (her children) raise the medical funds to relieve the fear she is holding on to.  She shouldn't have to deal with cancer and fear of not paying her bills- especially during this time of year.  Our goal is just the minimum to help her cover the doctors visits.  Every bit helps.  We (her children) are not looking to exceed what is needed, but to just allow her emotional room to heal, especially since we aren't able to provide the help ourselves.  Thank you and may God Bless You abundantly for your donation! Sincerely, Bryant, Michele, Jason, Casey, Chad, and all of her grandchildren
