Kim's Medical Expenses

My sister, Kim, is 39 years old and has two teenager daughters and a husband who loves her deeply.  She was really excited for this year.  Her oldest daughter is starting college away from home and her youngest daughter is beginning high school.  It was to be an exciting year for their family.  But then...four months ago she felt a lump in her left breast.  She went to the doctor but was told it was probably nothing, she is too young for breast cancer.  So she went home.  The next month, there was a lump under her left arm.  She dismissed it.  By the third month, the lump under her arm was bothering her so much, she went to the doctor again.  This time, the doctor decided that she needed to get a mammogram.  Of course, that lead to biopsy's and the diagnosis that no one wants to hear...CANCER.  The breast cancer in her breast is actually quite small.  When she went in to the oncologist for the first time, we were thinking that since she caught it early, she would be stage one or maybe two.  However, the diagnosis was Stage 3.  More tests and scans later, they have found that unfortunately, the cancer has already spread to her lymph nodes and we are now looking at possibly being in Stage 4 Breast Cancer. 

All the money raised here will be used to pay for her medical expenses related to curing her cancer.  She begins Chemo tomorrow and is looking at about 9 months to 1 year of treatment (chemo, surgery, radiation).  The tests to determine staging and location of her cancer has already cost a bundle and we are just starting.  If you can make a monetary donation, any amount would help to off set her expenses.  If a dollar is all you can give, please don't hesitate... every penny will help.  If you aren't in a position to gift monetarily, please send prayers that she is in Stage 3 and that she will be able to have a sucessful treatment plan that will cure her of this horrid disease.  My beautiful sister has two beautiful daughters who need their mom to be around for years to come.  Please help her to get closer to the cure we are all praying for.
