Judy's surgery

Judy has a growth on her lower stomach that hangs down to her knee. It weighs around 100 lbs. First showed up years ago the size of a golf ball. She didn't have insurance at the time , so the doctor said "let's watch it". Well we watched it get extremely bigger. It has caused extreme swelling inher legs and horrible pain in her right leg where it hangs and sets on it. Finally another doctor wanted it off for her health. Trying to find a surgeon near us is useless. Found one in Chicago but is going to cost around 20,000. She is a 70 year old widow on a limited income. This surgery is a quality of life issue. She would hopefully be able to stop using a walker and wheelchair. If you can imagine what living with this is like, take a king size pillowcase and fill it with 100 lbs, then strap it around your lower right side. Try walking and doing day to day activities with it. We appreciate any and all donations. Thank you.
