Back to my aunt. She is a mother, a grandmother and a total spitfire. It's pretty hard to see a jolly, full-figured, power house become terrified and thin. We learned of her diagnosis on June 12, stage 4 and 5 tumors in her liver. One is as big as a thumb which makes it inoperable. She has started chemotherapy and has been given a BS survival rate. I don't believe in these numbers but you tell a person they have a time stamp on their life and it has a effect, a negative one.
Let's add salt to the wound, shall we? My aunt has poor insurence. She is on a program offered by the county due to my uncle, her husband of 37 years, not being able to continue his profession as a printing press operator. So times are tough and the stress is mounting.
That brings me to why I'm on here. I want to provide her with some relief. I want her to be able to focus on her health and not the pile of medical bills that keep showing up in her mail box.
My aunt is a proud lady. She would much rather help you then ever ask for it for herself. In fact, she would probably kill me if she knew I was doing this. I still have to try.
My aunt's name is Frances Osborne and any prayers, well wishes and love sent her way is much appreciated but let's face it, money makes the world go round. Even the smallest amount.
I plan on coming up with even more creative ideas for raising fund for Eye Hate Cancer so please stay tuned and thank you so much in advance.
Any extra money contributed will go to a cancer research charity. I feel like there should be a cure with all the lives this disease has affected already but I guess we just have to keep up the fight.
