THANK YOU FOR HELPING THE SURGERY TO HAPPEN!!!! You ALL saved my mom's life! She needs to go through radiation treatment 5x a week for 6 weeks straight beginning directly after her 8 week healing period from the surgery. She now has insurance beginning in January (woohoo!) However, each visit will cost a $75 copay. As she is retired on a very small fixed income, and currently unable to work to supplement, this is still a hardship. For anyone who was intending to send a Christmas present, your support towards her treatment would mean the most to us this year. We wish everyone very Happy Holidays, and to share in the miracle of life that we are celebrating.
Humble Beginnings (where we started):
My mom, Kathy, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of uterine cancer. Due to job loss in February, she does not have insurance. She is a little less than a year away from qualifying for Medicare, she does not qualify for Medical, and open enrollment for Covered Ca does not start until November (for those not currently enrolled in Covered California) with benefits unavailable until January.
Her diagnosing doctor through Planned Parenthood made the urgency of the surgery very clear. Time makes the difference between life or death for my mom.
To put the financial ask into perspective, her surgery could be paid for if 300 people donated $50 each. 300 people could collectively help to save my mom's life.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help, and for sharing this campaign!
