My wife, Anne was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Langerhans Cell Sarcoma. It is so rare that less than 40 people are known to have had it. Anne is no stranger to medical struggles, she had Uterine Cancer at 32 and a Vertebral Artery Dissection stroke at 37. She overcame all that.
Now, she has a completely different battle in her hands. So much is still unknown about LCS. What we do know is that it will require a year of chemo, plus radiation therapy, lots of sick days, invasive procedures, travel to treatments, that all equate to loss of wages (Anne doesn't qualify for FMLA) along with a mountain of medical expenses. Lately, she's not able to complete one workday without getting sick.
For as long as I've known my wife, she has never asked anything from anybody. Still true today because I am the one asking for help. I had to pause my own livelihood so that I can care for her full-time. We trust that God will provide our needs, sometimes thru special people like you. Please help us fight this scary battle. No amount is too small. Everything counts. Any funds left over and not used for Anne's needs will be donated to research initiatives in helping to find a cure.
Thank you in advance and God bless.
