Autumn's Medical Fund

Autumn was recently diagnosed with invasive cervical squamous cell carcinoma, aka cervical cancer. Through her diagnosis, doctors discovered the cancer spread to some of her lymphnodes. As of now, she has three phases to her treatment. The first,  surgery to remove cancerous lymph nodes, was completed a few weeks ago.

Autumn will begin the second phase of her treatment, within the next few weeks. This phase includes 5-6 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation Monday-Friday. As you can imagine, this will be incredibly challenging, both physically, mentally and spiritually. Once she has recovered from this portion of treatment, she will begin internal radiation. Doctors have yet to determine the length of her internal radiation treatment.

Autumn is a beautiful and wonderful single mother to a lovely teenage daughter. While most of her family lives far away from her Central Indiana home, she is surrounded by loving family, friends and co-workers.

Since her surgery, Autumn has been unable to work. While she can receive some benefits and assistance, the financial impact is a large burden. Not only will the medical expenses be overwhelming, but her existing financial commitments (rent, bills, car payments, etc) only add to an already stressful situation.

We are starting this GoFundMe page with the hopes of relieving some of Autumn's financial burdens. So many people have asked how they can help and support and we hope they find their way to this page.

Autumn is a courageous and self-less woman. Even as she begins this fight to be Cancer Free, her main concern is her daughter and family. In her own words,
"My #1 priority is to show my daughter that even the scariest and hardest of times cannot take me away from her life and that I will be here for her for many years to come. She brings me so much happiness and unconditional love, even when we don't see eye to eye. I love you with all of my being Savannah!"

Our hope is that through relieving some financial strains, she can focus on her and her daughter's emotional/spiritual well-being, in addition to her physical healing.
