Kate's Fight against Ovarian Cancer

My name is Valerie Johnson and I am reaching out to you about a current tragic issue in my life. Recently, my Aunty Kate was diagnosed with Advanced Ovarian cancer. Her only chance of survival is chemotherapy, surgery and the other treatments that go along with that. Unfortunately, my family and I just found out recently that her treatments have been halted due to lack of insurance.

I would like to provide you with some background information that would help you understand just how much my Aunt means to me and how much she needs this treatment. Have you ever had or currently have an individual in your life that you can refer to as a second mom or dad? An individual that has taught you the ways of life alongside your parents, how to love, respect and care for one another? An individual that will love you, regardless of what you may deem as flaws about yourself? Well that person for me is my Aunty Kate, losing her would be losing a part of me. Throughout my life, she has been everything I needed and more. For 21 years, she has taken care of me and now it’s my turn to take care of her.

We need to raise 210,000 to fund all the necessary treatments for her and I am hoping to raise 6,600 of that by June 30th, which is the cost of her first chemotherapy appointement.  My end goal is 210,000 and any level of donation would be greatly appreciated. I hope to reach 210,000 by or before July 31st. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this and have a blessed day!
