Laura's Radiation Fund

After 5 years of various treatments for my desmoid tumor, I recently found out that I need radiation therapy daily for six weeks.  Because this treatment was denied by Aetna insurance, I have to pay $50,000 out-of-pocket for this procedure.  While receiving radiation at UMD, I will be staying in Baltimore and taking short term disability. To counteract loss of wages and this astronomical treatment cost, I am attempting to raise money to make ends meet.    
After going through chemotherapy, surgery and  cryoablation,  this is the only remaining option.  

Any donation is appreciated - feel free to share.  Thank you for your support during this difficult time!
