Help Liz in her fight

My name is Liz and I am starting this fund as I am battling a rare form of colon cancer, but  I can no longer manage financially.  Four years ago I was a nurse caring for others with great benefits and have become a statistic of a medical illness destroying someone financially. Multiple surgeries, other hospitalizations and treatments have put me in a position I have never been my life. I am fiercely independent and never ask for help, but this has done me in. My family is supportive and have helped as much as they were able, but can't continue. I am 61 years old but posted this picture as this is the one picture that expresses my spirit the best, not how I appear now. The good news is while my cancer returned after chemo and what was a possible curative surgery, I am now receiving immunotherapy and it is working! Physically mentally and emotionally it is a rollercoaster. Any help would be a blessing and should I unexpectedly lose the battle, remaining funds would go to cancer research. .
