Jamie & Dani's story is kind of long.... it's been going on for over 13 years!!!!  My sister in law (Dani) had cervical cancer and has now been cancer free for over 7 years which we are all thankful! However in the course of the cancer treatments she had she now has a colostomy and urostomy!!  She has had vein & artery  blockages in her right leg and has stents put in those, she also developed a nasty infection in her abdomen that had to be cut out and she spent several months in the hospital in Cleveland for treatment for that. This whole time my brother (Jamie) has been trying to work and care for her and their son (who is now 17).  She has also had to have her hip replaced due to bone deterioration from cancer treatments and she's in a wheelchair in a house that is not set up for that. She is still trying to learn how to walk again from being bed ridden for over a year.  At this point she is facing a MAJOR surgery this year where the surgeons will remove her bladder, uterus & rectum!!  It's VERY scary for them facing such a HUGE surgery & MAJOR recovery!!!   Plus, as of right now, the only place that will do this surgery is in Ann Arbor, Michigan which is over an hour aways from their home!!  Jamie has used up all of his vacation time, sick days & personal days from his work a long time ago so any time he misses is money out of their pockets unless he can pick up a shift somewhere which doesn't always happen. They only have one vehicle which is having issues and not entirely trust worthy!!  I am hoping to help them with your help. Any money (whatever the amount) would be greatly appreciated and will go towards travel expenses and medical supplies that the insurance doesn't cover as well as getting them back on their feet from this YEARS long fight for her health. At this point she is about to give up and is tired of fighting for everything she needs, she is disappointed and overwhelmed by what has happened to her over the years. I'm really hoping to lighten their financial load. THANK YOU to all that donate!!!!
