Enough is enough!Fight harder!

As many of you know my mother- in -law has had her share of health issues. She has beat breast cancer and stayed positive while living with M.S. over the last 20 years . Over a year ago she was handed another battle! After many tests and being poked and proded it was determined that she had one of the rarist types of cancers known, Cancer of an unknown primary origin. The best way to explain it is that the cancer never formed a tumor so they can not determine what type of cancer it is so they don't know how to treat it. Over the last year she has been through radiation, proton therapy, and if Im not mistaken she is on her 3rd round of Chemo. This last round has really taken a toll on her body. Even though she does her hair and makeup everyday;so you don't view her as sick when u see her at the store or bank; she has been in constant pain. This week she had to have a blood transfusion because her levels were dangerous. Two days later she is admitted into the hospital with possible complications and her kidneys are not functioning properly. She is a fighter and we know that this will not be her last battle! She will probably disown me after this post, but I would like her to not have to struggle to pay the hospital bills when she is home and stronger. She is the proudest person I know and that is how I know this struggle is one of the hardest yet. By raising a few dollars it will allow my father in law to be there and take a few days off of work so he can be there for his wife.  As hard working Americans not one of us is ever prepared for these set backs.. I am not looking for anyone to break the bank over a stranger; but if you have an extra few dollars or could skip the coffee out tomorrow morning and have it at the office it would really make a difference to them. I will try and post updates as they become available,but Sundays in the hospital are very difficult. If you have made it to the end of this story thank you!! If you can't donate I understand but please keep Paulette in your prayers as she fights another fight.
