Marissia's Fight against a Rare cancer

My name is Marissia, I was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma cancer Septembrer 2012.This is a soft tissue cancer that usually spreads very fast and I was given 2 years to live. I go to Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona for my care and accruing medical bills rapidly, about $25,000 a year at Mayo. I pay insurance premiums $13,000 a year and physical therapy $15,000 a year. I need to be in a single level home and need 20% down payment funds. Mayo clinic says that I am of that 10% that is keeping these 6 tumors ( 4 on my liver, 1on my lung and 1 on my tail bone) at bay and may be a candidate for a clinical trial drug at the Virginia G. Piper cancer center in Scottsdale, Arizona. I am sincerely grateful and humble for any financial help that I receive to help me beat this cancer. This will help open doors for more research of this rare cancer for other people.
