A beautiful woman Needing surgery to remove tumor

Dear Friends,
An unexpected opportunity has been placed at our feet. It is an opportunity to help an amazing woman we all know and love, get the resources she needs for a challenging surgical procedure. I Galen have decided to take it upon myself to ask our closest and most dear friends to help our beloved sister and friend Marion get the financial, emotional, physical, and spiritual support she needs to be well. This decision weights heavily on our hearts, as it is difficult for any of us to ask for help expecially for her to do on her own. I'm not sure how many people she was even planning on telling. But I felt it necessary to share this with everyone who cares about her. I know that you would want to know what's been wrong with her lately and/if how you help even if she can't ask for it.

Over the past few weeks, she began experiencing back spasms and stomach pains which resulted in them getting worse and worse over time. Since she cant afford obama care and cant get state funding she would simply not go to the doctors. Well on sunday marion just couldnt handle the pains no longer and asked me to take her to the hospital. Before the er could diagnose what they believed might be the cause of her symtoms, the doctors needed her to get an CT scan ,various tests and x-rays. This was the first hurdle in finding out what might be causing all the problems. Marion didn't want to have these test ran due to her not having any kind of insurance. But thankfully she was told she wouldn't be charged today but instead billed later on. Well we all know how much that is gonna be (one nurse said you'll be lucky if it's under 30,000).

But anywho the results came back later on that night and they found out it wasnt her kidneys but she has have a tumor near her stomach that causing all the back pains and upper stomach pains. Unexpectedly, the mass is large. Roughly 11x8x10 and it getting bigger.

This isn't her first time having one removed but this is the first time it's causing her this much pain and causing her to gain weight so fast. So, It must be surgically removed to prevent the continued growth from causing more serious and/or life threatening consequences. All this was told by the er doctor and to make it worse on her they said since she didn't have the funds to have surgery then the alternative would be to find the way to pay for it or to make other arrangements (guess he ment funeral said the nurse).

I have called around to see what options might be in her favorite. But as of right now she needs about 400 to 1000 to see the dr but that's for just the visit and a few tests.  All this is needed before she can have surgery. One nurse over the phone told her it might be 80,000 (on the cheep side) if she's lucky. So, im asking for help to alleviate some of the financial and emotional stresses that
She is dealing with. If you can help donate financially to this worthy cause she would appreciate it. If you cannot, please don't feel bad just leave her your prayers and well wishes.
