Pancreatic cancer patient

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October of 2017.  This was after suffering with symptoms for nearly 2 years and was miss diagnosed during that time.  Drs pretty much wrote me of, except for my family Dr.  I finally went to Indianapolis to see a specialist, and that very day, they found my tumor.  A biopsy was performed and a week later I was in treatment.  

Now I am a mother, and a wife.  Both my son and husband are fighting hard for me to beat this cancer and God willing I will beat it.  I plan to fight with all I have.  I had surgery on Valentine's day this year to remove the tumor, but the biopsies showed the cancer spread to my lymph nodes, so more treatments are required.

Right now my medical bills are already in the thousands and still rising.  But this week, my health insurance declined my chemo treatments and wants my DR to treat me with a less aggressive treatment.  The treatment only gives me 20% chance of survival.  So now we are looking to other treatment options elsewhere, taking us to the Chicago area.  This will be added travel expenses and medical expenses, but offers us a better chance at a treatment that will help me beat this terrible disease.  

I pray God will help us find a way.  I don't like asking for help, but I pray if you can donate that you will.  I will provide updates via Facebook for all to see.  And please know we are eternally grateful for any assistance you can provide.
