Although Pancreatic Cancer is a complex disease with a challenging prognosis, Lynn is a fighter who is facing her illness with the same vigor and intensity she uses in completing her marathon swims.
According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the average cost of care for newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer patients is more than $8,000 a month and can run as high as $200,000 over the course of the treatment. These estimates do not include time off from work nor the hidden costs of cancer. Although Lynn has medical insurance, she is in considerable pain and has already taken several days off of work for treatment. Lynn is single, lives alone and does not have anyone to fall back on.
Lynn is a kind, wonderful person with an infectious smile. She is ALWAYS the first to help others during their time of need. Lynn is also a proud person who does not want to be a burden to other people. She reluctantly has allowed me to quietly conduct this fundraiser for her. If you are so inclined, a donation from you in any amount would go a long way towards helping her enter the dark water, swim across the channel, walk on to the sand and claim victory as she defeats this terrible disease.
100% of the donations received will be used to off set medical deductibles, alternative treatments, work disability, travel expenses and basic living necessities Thank you for your consideration of a financial gift to this amazing athlete, loving mother and tender-hearted person.
God bless you!
