Karen Henry Cancer Fund

Karen Mullis Henry Cancer Fund  
   So this all started back in the last week of june 2019 where my mother was place in the hospital for severe pneumonia along with other issues, she had been driving a bus for over 20 something years. Well when the sent my mother home she was still insured through her job, even though she could not return to work because she had to stay on oxygen 24/7. Even tho she wanted to return to work she was not able to because of the oxygen and the c-pap machine she had to have. When they forced her to retire she could not afford $700 a month to keep her insurance going to after she retired she no longer had insurance. She has applied for insurance several time but has been denied because of her age she is 64 and to get medicare you have to be 65. 
    At the beginning of 2020 she was not insured so when she stared to feel sick and she just let it run its course because she did not have the money to pay for the doctor visits let alone medications so  she just did not go, Until she knew something was wrong because she was losing weight very quickly she has lost almost 80 pound in the last three months alone (july-september), So Me her daughter Mikayla and all of her family begged her to go to the dr, what we did not know what was wrong but shortly after her visit she was referred to Augusta for a BCS (which is where they look around in the body) they found a mass on her Pancreas. It is a stage 3 t4 tumor. They are getting a team together to try and beat this thing growing in her. SHe can not eat without trowing it back up thats why she has lost so much weight. These funds will be used for travel back and fourth to augusta seeing we live in swainsboro they will also help pay for some of medical bills that just keep seaming to pile up. We would like the fund as soon as possible. we are starting to go to augusta on a regular basis starting this friday (September the 18th of 2020). This situation is as urgent as it gets. 
    thank you everyone in advanced and if anyone would like to contact me my number is 4782068405 i will be more than happy to show proof or just to talk. She (Karen) is my last living parent. 
      Like i said thank you so much for all you help and support in this bad situation right now.
