Help Tamika Fight Stage 4 cancer!

In 2011, my sister Tamika "Mena" started having breathing complications. It was'nt until 2012  that she was diagnosed with sarcoidosis. Throughout the years she has made numerous hospital visits with no improvment.  The pain and the breathing just got worse.

Over the years she has been on several different medicines, but none of them worked. In June of this year the pain in her leg along with her chest pains became unbareable. She took another trip to the ER. They treated her for pneumonia. She was sent to a specialist and hospitalized.  After realizing that her condition had gotten worse, the doctors ran several test.

Weeks later test results revealed that she did not have sarcoidosis. They gave her the news that she has stage 4 lung cancer, with a life expectancy of 1 year.  Yes  a 36 year old non smoker developed lung cancer. The cancer has spread to other parts of her body.  She went in to work the day after her diagnosis, but could not deal with the physical and emotional pain. She left work before her lunch hour.

She is unable to work becuase of the pain. This means no income for her.  After years of trying to get disability assistance  she has had no success.  I'am raising money in hopes to ease the stress of money in the next  few months. Her bills are still coming and she still wants to enjoy life with her 2 year old son as much as she can. For those of you that know her, feel free to send her positive and encouraging messeges. Please continue to pray for healing. She has decided that she will beat cancer!!!!!  Treatment starts next week. Let's help her fight!

Thanks to everyone.
