Help Donna Smith with Medical Costs

On December 4, 2013, Donna fell at work where she cut her head and had to go to the ER.  After a cat scan and MRI it was determined that she had a brain tumor in the right temporal lobe. She had a craniotomy to remove the tumor and the results of the tumor biopsy showed to be Grade 4 Glioblastoma , a form of primary brain cancer. She has health insurance but her plan does not cover prescription drugs. The standard protocol of treatment is radiation and oral chemotherapy that is a prescription filled at a pharmacy prior to the start of treatment. Due to the fact she does not have prescription coverage this will be very costly and she is set to start treatment around January 20, 2014. She also has to take a prescription of antibiotics to fight infection and another prescription for nausea. The Smith's are still recovering financially after her husband Tommy had a massive heart attack in May of 2013. He survived the heart attack but will have treatment this year that may include more stints or bypass surgery. I am reaching out to help assist them in the financial burden they are about to face and to maybe help relieve some stress in there everyday lives. Any donations no matter the size are greatly appreciated.
