Help with Michelle's medical bills

On September 16th, 2016 my sister Michelle, turned 40 years old. She was doing well with her career, tending to her 3 children, engaged to her then, fiance' and optimistic for her new chapter in life. Just a few short weeks later, everything changed and she was given the devasting news that she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer and it had begun to effect her lymphnodes.
Her journey has included; having a procedure to have a port placed in her chest, 4 months of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of radiation, 8 days in the hospital to have the mass and some lymphnodes removed; which was done by cutting her vertically from her chest bone to her lower abdomen and having a ileostomy (catather) bag placed. She has experienced complications and still continues to have the bag, which she has had for over 3 months. She will then have another surgery to reverse the bag.
She has not been working since October of 2016. Her T.D.I has run out and her medical bills are piling up. Recently, she confided in me that she "feels like she is drowning". I did not even know the financial situation was at this point.
Michelle is a mom, wife, daughter, sister and a friend. She has remained strong, however, she has fought alone long enough. Please consider helping her with her journey. No donation is too small and every penny is greatly appreciated. My family and I are extremely grateful for the well wishes and prayers.

Thank you for the continued support, as it has been a challenging year.
Let us help Michelle and let her know that she is not alone.

With great appreciation,
The Kabbas Family
