Leah’s medical fund

My younger sister, Leah, was diagnosed with breast and liver cancer.  She was admitted to a Kentucky hospital through Sunday to begin immediate chemo with surgery as soon as the tumors have shrunk (a complete maschetomy, but hopefully not a liver transplant).  Leah is very postive that she will beat this and the doctors seem to share that belief!  After the first few days of chemo, she is tired but hanging in there.  Leah is the strongest person I know and she will beat this damn cancer.  

While Leah (thankfully) has decent insurance coverage, she still faces signifacnt deductibles and as strong as she is she will need to take time off from work.  Our entire family is supporting her in this trying time and her new employer has been very supportive.  Unfortunately, even with that help, she does not have the financial resources to withstand these hits.  

I never thought I'd be in place to ask for help in protecting a family member, but I never thought my sis would be fighting for her life either.  In the immediate term, she needs your thoughts, emotional support, and prayers.  For those of you that can contribute $, she will need that too.
