Help Dawn BEAT Cancer!!!

My Aunt Dawn was recently diagnosed with stage 4 Adenocarcinoma and recently underwent back surgery where they found multiple tumors in and around her spine. They inserted 2 rods, 6 screws and put cement in the shattered areas to stabilize her crushed L2 area after the lung cancer spread to her bones.

My Aunt is the most selfless person we know, she's always putting her family and others needs above her own. There are no limits to what she would do, and has done to help others through difficult times. We’ve seen her take strangers into her own home to care for and help them get back on their feet and even when her home was already over full with her large family of 8. That didn't stop her though nor did she even hesitate to just pull out the sheets and make up a couch or a pallet on the floor.  And we won’t even mention all the animals that got a home too!  She truly cares about all living things and never asks for anything for herself, but after being in the hospital a little over a week and the physical therapy and radiation she will be undergoing she is terrified of the bills that will be coming into an already stretched budget. She is so worried that the burden of her medical bills will be stealing from her kids futures. She wants them to be able to continue their educations and be all that God has in store for them. My Uncle Alan, her husband of 25 years has always worked so hard to support the family and has done a great job, but with a large family, there are always more needs than funds.  She is this families rock and the glue that holds them together and we need her to continue to fight, to focus on getting better and back on her feet and not the worry of any financial burdens or guilt.

While we are all praying for and believing in the healing power of our lord Jesus Christ my Aunt and her family are terribly burdened by the financial stress of this cancer and if God leads you to help her family it would mean the world to us all!!
