Help me Fight: Cancer Stage IV


My name is Brenda Coleman and this page is created  to raise money to pay for medical bills deriving from Stage IV Cancer.   I had no insurance and was working through a temporary agency with no benefits when I entered he first hospital and charged $55,000 for a 9 day stay after my appendix ruptured.   Two weeks after discharge from the first hospital I was readmitted and charged another $55,000 for complications from my appendix rupture.  Two months after being discharged from the first hospital, I was admitted to a second hospital with a balance of $6500 thanks to the Affordable Care Act, I have insurance now.   After starting chemotherapy for the cancer,  I have quite the pharmacy bill.

Medical expenses that are my responsibility are over $150,000.  After taking chemotherapy for one year, I decided to try another approach to getting rid of the tumors using alternative and naturopathic treatment.  This led me to Phoenix, AZ where after 3 1/2 days of naturopathic treatment, I found myself in the emergency room and ICU fighting for my life.  I was now in hospital number 3 for 7 days and since I was out of network, my insurance will not pay any of the $35,000 medical bill.    

: In Arizona, I have a place to stay but there is no money for gas and grocery.  I also have bills that are ongoing to maintain my place of residence.
I want to win this fight against cancer and do it with integrity and grace...

Please give whatever you can, every little bit helps...
