Loretta's Kick Cancers Butt

My name is Carol McDaniel & I'm raising money for my sister Loretta Overton who was recently diagnosed with Liver Cancer.  Loretta is a single Mom of one 18 yr. old daughterTanna & they live in Harvest Bend.  Loretta was laid off in August 2017 & lost her health insurance. In September 2017 she was diagnosed with Liver Cancer. Loretta had to go thru Obama care to get insurance but must pay the monthly premiums with no income. She has filed for disability but has not started receiving it yet. In the meantime Loretta has had 6 chemo treatments so far and many tests including a pet scan. Recently tests revealed she has pancreatic cancer as well. However, the liver cancer is responding well to the chemo & her cancer "numbers" are good. Loretta now needs a biopsy of her pancreas this month to see if chemo treatments need to be adjusted. Due to Obama care red tape herJan. insurance was cancelled & won't reinstate til Feb. so now her biopsy & next weeks chemo will have to be cancelled  until Feb.  The $2,800 deductable has been worked out but she will still need a $300 co-pay for the biopsy and $100 co-pays every time she has chemo twice a month. Loretta has exhausted all of her funds paying the insurance premiums, mortgage payments, car insurance & utilities for the last four months. She was told her first disability payment should be the end of March (5 month waiting period). Its hard enough dealing with cancer, being alone & being so sick after each treatment without having to stress out over money & bills. So I'm asking for any help/funds you can give to help Loretta through this rough time. This will help her make her mortgage, utilities insurance premiums & co-pays for the next several months until the disability payments start. I know a lot of you have been praying for Loretta & encouraging her & she and our family are truly very grateful for this. Loretta has always worked hard & raised her daughter alone & she's too proud to ask for help. In fact she was against my suggestion of this GoFundMe request which she doesn't know about yet.... but she will, as her sister I can't sit around & do nothing. Loretta needs the financial help. If any of you can help in any way, please give what you can. No amount is too small, as it all adds up. And if you cant donate we understand that too, these are  hard times,  We'd simply ask for your prays & please share her story.   We lost our Mom to brain cancer in 2013, so we are determined to help Loretta Beat & Kick Cancers BUTT! Thank you & please continue your prays & words of encouragement. We will be forever grateful! PLEASE SHARE LORETTA'S STORY & HELP IF YOU CAN. May God Bless you all!
