Help support Missy's cancer journey

I was diagnosed with stage 4  tongue cancer on May 31,2017,, I am among 7% of women that have never smoked, drank alot to be diagnosed with this type of cancer. My treatment started at Emory and I decided to get a second opinion at MD Anderson, which my treatment began July 4, 2017 with my first round of chemo. Then a second round of chemo July 24, 2017 and now I will go have a scan at MD Anderson so they can decide for a 3rd round or wait until surgery September 1, 2017 followed by 6-7 weeks of radiation. The reason we are asking for the funds are we will be traveling to Texas and staying there beginning August 28, 2017 to the end of the year. I may be able to come home a couple of weeks between surgery and radiation. We will need to rent a room for the time we are there. We will be flying multiple times to and from Texas, as well as medical bills and we have 2 daughters we are putting through college. We would normally never ask for assistance but this has became a challenge for us. We will be using buddy passes to travel which will cost me 100.00 round trip and my husband and daughters 160.00 round trip. A room will cost anywhere from 3000.00 to 5000.00 for the time we will be out there. Any amount will help no matter how little,  and it will help me kick cancers butt. Thank you.

Love
Missy, Philip, Savannah and Sidney
