Cancer a pain in my butt literally

My name is Calencia Behlin and I'm a hard-working woman who was diagnosed with Anal cancer on October 12, 2017. To hear someone say they have cancer is one thing, but when it's you, the sound of it is unreal. I've completed two cycles of chemo and several weeks of daily radiation, with a few more weeks to go. I'm in pain constantly but I’m fighting strong and remain faithful. What they forget to tell you is that not only will your anus be in pain, but your entire lower region will be on fire, causing it to be painful to sit down and move around.

In addition to the cancer, within the last year I faced other medical issues. In October 2016, I had a stroke and was out of work for nine weeks recouping. In January 2017, I had severe kidney stones which included two procedures and I was unable to work for seven weeks during that time. I have used all my leave and my pay has been drastically reduced while I’m on short-term disability. My savings account has been exhausted and I am desperately in need of financial support.

I'm humbling creating this GoFundMe page for financial assistance with my living and medical expenses. My insurance pays a percentage of the costs, but it's not at 100% and the hospital bills are ongoing. If you can assist me I would greatly appreciate it and no amount is too large or too small. If you have the desire to give and are unable at this time, I respectfully ask that you keep me in prayer.

Thank you !
