Kary Ann Oakley - Funeral & Final Wishes Fund


This is our sister, Kary Ann Hartman-Oakley...

Kary was recently diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma - a large cell, rapid growing cancer that started in her colon & has metastasized (spread) to her liver.  

Time to fight...

After a few trips to the ER, weeks admitted, mis-diagnosis, an unexplained infection, proper diagnosis & an assigned cancer care team, it was finally time to start this fight & Kary was READY.

Unfortunately, she ended up back in the hospital with adverse reactions to her first round of chemotherapy. We are DEPENDANT upon chemotherapy, as the tumors must respond to prepare for surgery. So, we're in the process of working with the cancer team, cardiologist & GI team to determine the proper combination of chemotherapy that her body can withstand. 

A bit more insight...

Kary is a single mother of one amazing young man, Blayze, who lost his father to cancer just a couple years ago. Kary not only cares for Blayze, but also keeps her door open to ANYONE in need of a place to lie their head, to find a hot meal, or just a shoulder to cry on or a non-judgmental listener. She's donated her time, money and unconditional love to so many...so it's time we repay this amazing woman & help her fight this battle!!!


As expected, medical bills are coming in quickly & we're having some issues with insurance coverage (networks, copayments, co-insurance, deductible, non-covered drugs, etc). She is unable to work as much as anticipated & funds are running out quickly. We are a small family, trying our best to make ends meet - but this is only the beginning of a long, expensive battle & we are humbly asking for YOUR help. ANY donation is very much appreciated - as are PRAYERS!!! 

Funds raised will go towards medical expenses, living expenses, traditional & holistic treatments, etc. Please help - Kary needs ALL our support - emotionally & financially.

Again, your donations are appreciated more than you'll ever know. Trying to find light in a very dark place. God Speed!

Thank you,
From our family to yours

12/12/2020 - Heaven gained an angel today. Kary passed away in her home, surrounded by loved ones. She's at peace after a long, hard battle. 

Any further donations will go towards funeral expenses & final wishes. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

Rest in Paradise, love - We will miss you always & you're forever in our hearts
