Financial Hardship for family of 4, Mother has cancer

I am asking everyone for help for my family of four. Normally I don't ask anyone for anything, but under the circumstances I really don't have many other options. I am the mother of a seven year old girl, Kaylee, and a nine year old boy, Joshua. My son is aware of the meaning of cancer, Kaylee just knows mommy is in the hospital a lot and she's always tired. Before I was diagnosed with cancer both of us were employed. I have been on a leave of absence since June 2013. I have been fighting cancer in my abdomen since July of 2013. The cancer has now moved into both lungs. The doctors are treating my cancer with chemo to try to shrink it but they made sure we understand it can't be cured. Our family has suffered both mentally and financially. Cancer is an expensive disease. My husband has to miss work sometimes to take care of me and when he does it puts more on him financially. Anyone that has ever dealt with cancer understands how quickly the expenses can wipe you out financially. I'm asking you to please help my family. The money will be used for medical bills and traveling expenses for my treatment. For all those that can afford it, I truly hope you will make a donation. I know that you will be blessed back at some point in your lives.  Thank you.
