Diana's Chemo/radiation Treatment

It’s been almost a year since our mom was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. She has been doing amazing (thank you Jesus!!)with her chemo treatments this past year. Unfortunately we just found out that the cancer has traveled to the bone in her neck. The oncologist would like to start her on radiation on top of chemo in hopes of getting rid of the spot on her neck. We were so overwhelmed with kindness from you all this past year In helping our mom be able to fight this awful illness. We were blessed with another year with our mom by our sides this past year —& its all thanks to you giving and praying & Jesus fighting for her.

Unfortunately my mom has to cut down on her hours at work due to the radiation that she will now be needing on top of the chemo. Thankfully her and my stepdad have some money needed saved up so far but we still need some help with bills. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all the prayers and support.

“ We are not alone. He’ll get us through battle if we just hold on to faith. No doctor can determine when your last day is. God alone has the last say in your life. He determines the outcome of your story. His name has power over any diagnosis in life!”

Finding out:
Our mom was sadly diaganosed with stage 4 lung cancer on12/18/17. She was misdiagnosed with pneumonia & when the antibiotics weren't working & her heart felt like it was suffocating we rushed her to the emergency room. They found fluid in her heart & lungs that needed to be drained. They then sent her into emergency surgery for a periacardial window. In surgery then found bloody fluid around her heart. Days later in the hospital, we were told she has stage 4 lung cancer that transferred to her pericardium & needs to start treatment immediately. The doctors are reccomending chemo once every 3 weeks.

Unfortunately, in this day & age if you don't have money, the medical system just lets you fall by the wasteside. We can't let that happen to our mom- she has done EVERYTHING for everyone else and now is our time to step up and help her.

We were supposed to start her first treatment today 12/29/17 but the center let us know that they cannot start until we have paid in full. Her deductible for the new year is $5,500. Once she meets her out of pocket deductible all the rest of her treatments for 2018 will be covered. This is an emergency as her doctors said since it is in her pericardium the cancer travels fast and her lungs will continue to fill up with fluid if she doesn't start getting treated. We do not have time to save up money for this. We need to act fast and beat this. All money will go towards chemo treatment.

Her first chemo treatment starts 1/3/2018.

Anything will help. Thank you in advance. We know that the Lord is close to the broken hearted and He will not leave her. He is a good father and can perform miracles. We have to hold on to his truth and cling to prayers.
