Lifting Up With the Hands of Hope

What is there to say about Ms. Terry Monyak.  She is a a positive woman who always has a smile on her face, and puts a smile on others.   A mother of two absolutely amazing girls, whom she cherishes more than anything in the world.  She will open her heart to you, and help others who are in need of help. 

Recently, Terry was diagnosed with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer.   In December of 2018, Terry underwent an extensive 6+ hour surgery to remove her kidney. The hope was this would be the end, and all would be clear.  

Early 2019, she still was not feeling herself.  At this point in time, the doctors ran test after test to reveal the unthinkable.  Terry's kidney cancer had spread to her lungs and her liver.  Unfortunately, because this is still considered Kidney Cancer, chemotherapy is not the best option for Terry.  She has been in and out of the hospital since her surgery, has received multiple blood transfusions, and is just in a lot of pain.  

At this point in time, we would like to raise money for Terry to help with her medical bills / treatments as well as every day household expenses.  For people who know Terry, they know that she would be the first person to offer a helping hand and is too proud to ask for help.  

Any little bit helps.  Let's help Terry in her time of need to get through this challenge in her life.
