Lauren's Medical Fund

My beautiful niece Lauren was recently diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer.  The Doctor at John's Hopkins gives her a zero percent chance of survival and she may only have a few months to live.  She is only 28 years old and has three young children with the youngest one being 15 months old.  If she dies her children will grow up without a mother. We're all praying that this will not happen.

The tumor is pressing on her kidneys so she has bags on her side to help the doctor monitor her kidneys.  She is having a problem digesting food and now weighs only about 85 pounds.  They don't have any money so one of thier friends is helping with a case of ensure so maybe she can keep her strength up.  She's going through chemo and radiation and has to have blood transfusions to replenish her blood from the treatments.  

Money is a big problem for them not only because of getting the things that she needs but transportation is a problem as well.  Her mother is riding a bus to her house every morning during the week while her husband is at work.  Her mother watches the children while she gets herself to the hospital for treatment also by bus.  Lauren has very little strength and it is very difficult for her on a daily basis trying to keep herself alive.  I'm hoping that this will raise some money to help with some of the necessities. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
