But this particular cancer took her victory very personal and returned with a vengeance. In 2012, Lori received the devastating news that the cancer had returned. This time, she was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer Stage 4 that spread not only to her iliac bone but also her vertebrae. As a result, she has developed Congestive Heart and Kidney failure. Further, the cocktail of medication Lori needs to consume to remain stable has left her weak and lethargic.
Lori felt she had no choice but to retire from the most challenging and rewarding career that she spent her life, loving. And, because she chooses to continue to focus on her life…Literally, and improve her health, she finds herself facing even more challenges from the insurance company that she’s paid into for nearly twenty years.
Each month, Lori is paying a higher premium and a higher deductible. She is also paying for all medications not covered by Disability Retirement, out of her own pocket - - which, as you can imagine, is astronomical.
Many have inquired about contributing toward the healing process. This GoFundMe is designed to do exactly that. If you can assist Lori and her husband, Rick by helping to not only alleviate some of the stresses of their finances but also, and most importantly, meet their objective of kicking cancer’s ass and living a long healthy life alongside their grandchildren, they would graciously accept. Please consider donating to this couple who humbly refused to have help from anyone for years but have always, ALWAYS given without question. Thank you!
