Help Betty Beat Cancer Fund

Betty Hernandez, our beloved mother, wife, grandma, sister, and friend was diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcinoma cancer in her left lung (advanced NSCLC) with metastasis to her right lung, heart wall, kidney and thyroid lymph nodes . She is strong and willing to fight this difficult diagnosis.  Betty needs our help! She has finally started her immunotherapy treatment as her doctors have just found a match unfortunately,  medical co-pays are $1,400 per session (she'll need several) of Keytruda an alternative treatment. Her medication costs due to the excruciating pain the tumor is causing her are  also creating a huge strain on her financial wellbeing as well as physically and emotionally. Her continuous emergency room, urgent care, Dr. consultations, repetitive PET/CT scans, MRI's,  and all diagnostic treatment visits are all creating a financial burden due to the high co-pays she is facing. Cancer sucks and Betty has not stopped working because she is afraid that if she does, she may not be able to afford her treatment.

Estimados amigos y familia mañana empiezo mis tratamientos...sigo orando por un milagro...el dolor es más intenso... lla que el tumor me está molestando el lado de mi costilla...días buenos y malos..."-Betty


Betty is kind and generous beyond words. She always gives of herself and puts others before herself. Now, it's our turn to help her in her greatest time of need. No amount of support is too small or too much. Your thoughts and prayers are also greatly appreciated.

" l would like to update you with the cancer issues I am going through. I had my visit last month with my doc., he told me that the cancer was now increasing in size, so I asked him so how much time do I have to live, and he turned around and answered..... your will and a miracle. I have the will, now all I need is a miracle..thank you for praying for me...
Me gustaría  darles noticias sobre mi

-Betty
