Janelle's Kissing Cancer Goodbye

My sister-in-law, Janelle, was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer on Halloween this year.  Her doctors are on top of it and she has already started treatment.  After four months of intense chemotherapy, she will have a double masectomy, reconstruction and then radiation.  Janelle has a very long, painful, and expensive process ahead of her.  She and her husband just moved to California for Rob's work so Janelle is facing this eight hours away from him.  It was imperative that Janelle use her establish doctors in Oregon.  I am amazed at Janelle's positive attitude.  She is amazing.  

Janelle's insurance deductible is over $13,000 each year.  She then has to pay 30%.  The diagnosis happening in October is making this a huge financial burden on Janelle and Rob.  The medical bills for 2017 are over $13,000 and 2018 will easily exceed that.

  Janelle and Rob have been saving to get into a home.  Those savings are having to go towards medical bills now.  I want to raise funds for the medical expenses so that Janelle and her husband can move forward with that new home after this ordeal is behind them.  Right now, Janelle needs to just focus on the treatments and getting better.
