Medical expense

As many of you already know, Sherri Marquez was diagnosed with Squamish cell oral cancer a few weeks ago. Since then, she has undergone surgery and is now recovering at home. Even though it was extremely stressful, it seems now like the surgery was the easy part - now she must focus on paying the medical bills.  Sherri has health insurance, however, the out of pocket expenses are far more than expected.  With an annual out of pocket deductible of $15,000, our family has fallen short and is asking for a little help to ensure this doesn't become something that holds back both her recovery and all around quality of life.  Anyone who knows Sherri knows she would never hesitated to help any and everyone that needed it. She has raised two wonderful daughters and most of the kids in the neighborhood.  She is selfless and kind, and would give the clothes off her back if need be.  She has helped out many friends to get back up on their feet ---this is her biggest pleasure in life, watching and helping people fulfill their potential. Needless to say, this is not where we thought we would be but it seems to be the new norm.  I appreciate you taking to time to read this and hope you are able to help.
