Lea Spangler's Cancer Recovery Fund

Lea Gayle Ford Spangler is currently under going cancer treatment through the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, IL.   Lea is an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister,  neice, aunt, sister-in-law, cousins & friends.  She recently took a leave of leave of absence from work so that she can take this time to rest and heal. Lea has tried to maintain working 30 hour weeks in order to keep her health insurance.  Now she will have to go on her husband's insurance and meet another deductible. January 2006 Lea discovered she had colon cancer. After several surgeries and chemo and radiation treatments she beat colon cancer.  Lea discovered almost 2 years ago that she had cancer once again. This time she had Uterine Cancer.  A PET scan showed that the cancer was also in several lymph nodes, on her liver and kidneys.  With the current treatment all the cancer is gone expect for 2 lymph nodes.

    Lea's  faith, determination and zest for life is  amazing.   My name is Kathy Sexton Kovacs. Lea and I have been friends since 3rd grade, over 47 years now.  I was going to send flowers to Lea then I thought I want to do more to help her through her 2nd battle with cancer.  I decided to put the money I would spend on flower to better use.  Helping Lea offset some of her medical expenses. No one should ever have to worry about bills when they are sick. The littlest donations make a big difference.  Thank you in advance for your amazing generosity.
