Amanda's Fund

Only 25 years old Army veteran, Amanda, with 2 little girls was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Her bucket list is for this to go viral and be on the Ellen Degeneres show and take her girls to Disneyland. She is unable to work due to her chemo treatments, and is on disability from work. However, her employer messed up her disability and she hasn't received money from it. She just spent the last of her money on her most recent car payment, and doesn't know how she will pay for the upcoming bills. To add to the financial trouble her bone pain is so severe some days she can't breathe, and her depression is coming back. Please help her pic go viral and share her!

UPDATE: 25 June 2015

Amanda received the news that she can never be cured. The only thing the doctors can do is try to put her into remission to prolong her life by starting with a laprascopic scope. If it's safe to proceed then she will undergo surgery, and give her a full hysterectomy and a temp colostomy bag with possibility of a permanent one. Thank you to everyone who has helped out thus far.
