Help Heal Haley

Haley was recently diagnosed with a high grade osteosarcoma in her right arm.   She was suffering from severe pain in her arm, and after doctors conducted extensive testing found the cancer growing in the upper part of her arm. 
She will be undergoing two 5-week cycles of chemo.  This will be followed by a surgery where most of the bone on her upper arm will be removed.  Some bone from her leg, along with donor bone, will be used to reconstruct her arm.  After she has recovered enough from the surgery to have reduced risk of fracture, she will undergo the second round of chemo. 
These next 9 to 10 months will mean a lot of trips in the hospital with significant amounts of downtime for healing. 
We are hoping to raise $10,000 to help Haley cover the costs of medical deductibles, lost pay from work and incidentals  (like food and dog walking) that will be hard or impossible for her to take care of. 
Friends and family know Haley as an outgoing, active 27 year old just beginning a successful career.  She and her sister Lilly have been down the cancer road before, losing their mom 9 years ago to breast cancer.  Please help make this healing journey just a little easier for my amazing niece.
