Help Angie Fight Cancer!

I have known Angie Bettencourt since 2nd grade. Angie is not only my best friend, she is my sister and the godmother to my two daughters. She is a kind and generous soul, who loves animals and people. It is common for Angie to strike up conversations with strangers and even give them a hug if she thinks they might need it! Angie is my polar opposite but we have been through thick and thin for over 35 years. On February 14, 2018, at 41 years old, Angie was diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer that has metastasized to her lymph nodes. After 2 years of unexplained weight loss, we finally had an answer and it was not good. Angie is a fighter though and she will continue to do whatever it takes to beat this cancer! With hereditary PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) normal treatments are challenging for Angie. After one round of Chemotherapy, she was admitted to the hospital for blood transfusions due to low blood counts. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover the Chemo treatments. These treatments are approximately $1000 each, not including weekly trips to multiple doctors. She is unable to work and has limited income. Angie needs your help to continue to battle this cancer. I am asking for three things to help Angie as she continues her fight against cancer; 1. Monetary donations, no matter how small, will help Angie to continue treatments and pay the mounting medical bills. 2. If you are able, please donate blood. Angie will most likely have to get additional blood transfusions throughout treatment. Please visit www.giveblood.org to find a donation location near you. 3. Please continue to pray that Angie makes a full recovery. Also, if you see someone that might need a hug, be like Angie and don't hesitate to give them one! With your Help, I am confident that Angie will get the best treatment available and she will BEAT CANCER!
