Bonnie's Cancer Fund

In 2012 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Thyroid cancer. I was given a total thyroidectomy, with  follow up treatments  of RAI, or radio acctive iodine. The doctors were satisfied that this was all the treatment that I needed, and that I was "cured". Thing is, if you have cancer, and they do not get it all, it can start growing somewhere else. This is probably what has happend to me.

We do not have a clear diagnosis of what kind of cancer I have, but according to my recent MRI it looks like it is in my liver, outside my liver, and wrapped around an artery.  It may or may not have spread to other places. I will soon be having a biopsy. I also need a PET and possible CAT scan, a bone scan, an endoscopy and a colonoscopy. Besides the MRI I have had ex-rays and an ultra sound, and lots of bloodwork. And this is just for the diagnosis, let alone the treatment!  We have not yet reached our deductable, but there is no doubt that we will.

We have a very long road ahead.We recently moved to a new town and we cannot afford the medical bills we are facing. We have no savings, as we lived off of what we had when Bill's plant closed and he was un- and underemployed for a long time. I hate to ask people for help, but I'm afraid that we will lose our home. We still have a child in school, he has three years until graduation. 

If you can find it in your heart to donate to help pay our ever increasing medical expenses, then anything you  can give is more that appreciated. It will be such a blessing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please pray for us. God Bless.
