Help Kelly Fight like a Warrior

As many of us know my mother Kelly has been having difficulty with her tongue swelling since September 2017.  The swelling had caused her speech to become impaired. She finally received health insurance in December 2017 which does not cover much. She has had a rough 5 weeks with several ups and downs. She has seen several doctors and because of her insurance and/or location she has been bounced around.  She is currently at JPS. She has cancer of the tongue and pharynx. We are waiting on the most recent biopsy results to know what stage it is. She has had two surgeries this past week to place a feeding tube, a Tracheotomy, a chemo port and a scope to biopsy her tongue and pharynx. We are working on getting her set up with JPS Insurance. This is going to be a long hard fight. We are asking for any donation to help her pay for medical expenses that come up as well as living expenses.
