Barbs Battle with the Big 'C'

Hi,my name is Gary. I am starting this GoFundMe for my sister. She does not want me to do this,but since when do I listen to my little sister. For those of you that know me,you know that I hate to ask for help for anything,but I feel I need to now. My sister started feeling a little under the weather this past summer,developed a little shortness of breath and some coughing. Held off going to the doctor till September. They ran some tests,did chest x-ray and long story short,she ended up in the hospital. More tests and scans,and they say she has very bad COPD,which never bothered her before....BUT....they also found a mass in her lungs,and as it turns out...its lung cancer. Well turns out her medical insurance is pretty much a scam and covers hardly anything. As you can imagine bills are piling up,and she has not even started any treatments yet. Now my sister Barb,is the kindest,most generous person you could know...if anyone needs help with anything,she is always the first person there,if she has money she will share it with you if she can,she has helped many people thru the years,myself included. She lost her daughter a few years back at the age of 32,from a massive heart attact. She struggled thru that,and stayed strong. Well now she needs a little help. She is in for a tough fight,but she is not giving up,and neither am I. I don't know what else to do,except be there for her and ask for your help. If you could share this with your friends and families and ask them to share with their friends and families to get this out to as many people as possible,we would be for ever in your graditude.Please donate to Barbs Battle,to help cover medical bills and her much needed treatment. As you can tell I'm not much of a writer and its very hard to put down on paper what I really mean,but I hope this story is good enough to explain what we are going thru...Thank you in advance for you generosity
