Lisa's We've got this cancer fund

As much as Tim and I truly never wanted to do something like this, unfortunately we need help.
As most of you know, last year in March I was diagnosed with Stage IV Bladder Cancer. I was very blessed to have had the strength to work during most of my Chemo Treatments. I also had some amazing co-workers who donated sick leave, for day's when I was not feeling very well. Then l was placed on short-term disability. I had surgery in February and could not return to work as quickly as I would have liked to. Then, this past April (2017) I was terminated from a job I truly loved and placed on long-term disability. Tim is working as much overtime as he can to support the family. We budget every penny we have just to try and make ends meet. Even with the good news I got today (remission) I will still need to continue to go through treatments every 2 weeks and continue with medication every day.

Even with our insurance, the medical bills are far beyond what we can afford to pay. As much as we do not want to ask, we need help getting these medical bills paid. Our goal is just to get caught up on as many medical bills as possible.

I am actively look to work again, not only is long-term disability financially not cutting it, I am getting board at home. I feel well enough to at least try.. Again, as much as we hate to ask, any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.
