Help for Scher's Cancer Treatment

I am Dr. Scherry Messic, clinical psychologist. I was diagnosed with ovarian/pelvic carninomatosis cancer August 29, 2012. Since being diagnosed I have been unable to work and terminated my clinical practice, which was our family's primary source of income. After major "debulking" surgery on September 14, 2012 I have been undergoing radical chemo treatment since. I was told I am stage 3c and am faced with a minimum of five hospital stays as part of this treatment process. I do not have the means to cover the high deductibles as well as the high monthly insurance premiums (monthly insurance cost: 900. deductibles are over 12,400.). The stress of fighting the cancer and the financial impact on my family feels overwhelming. I am reaching out to anyone who feels led to help. Prayers are appreciated the most. God has given me a joy despite the chaos.
