Kamerin's fighting cancer & stroke

I am setting up this fund for my dear friend Kamerin, whose nature is to not ask for help, even though it is much needed. Thank you for taking a moment to read about Kamerin's story and how you can help!!

Kamerin is a beautiful soul who was diagnosed with grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma brain cancer in 2011. Kamerin, by the grace of God and wonderful physicians, is currently in remission from the tumor; however she still suffers from seizures and other cancer-related afflictions. In late 2014 Kamerin suffered a stroke which has resulted in partial left side paralysis and debilitating back problems. She fights every day to push through her struggles, smiling even when she is in so much pain. Her grace, humor, and love is known by those lucky enough to be a part of her life and even by the strangers she comes into contact with. 

Prior to her stroke Kamerin was working two jobs to pay down some of her medical expenses related to the cancer treatment, but because of the stroke she is unable to work the second job to supplement the ever-rising medical expeses of past cancer treatments and the current costs associated with after-care from the stroke. An unforseen medical issue from the stroke has been a debilitating back problem. Because Kamerin is mostly confined to bed, her body has taken a physical toll and she is in desperate need of back surgery to correct spinal stenosis and herniated discs. The surgery is expensive and will likely require time away from her work and travel expenses.

She is blessed to have a job that allows her to work from home, but without her additional income and the large increase in medical care expenses, Kamerin is in need of your help. All money you donate will go to costs associated with medical treatments, cost of living expenses associated with time away from work, and travel to and from her physicians. 

Our ultimate goal is to get Kamerin through this back surgery and into physical therapy where she can regain use of her left side and enjoy everday tasks and events that mean so much to her! Let's work together to get the sunshine back into this California girl's heart.

Many thanks and blessings,

Stacy
