Medical help for Marie's Cancer

Hey Everyone, 

My name is Frank Shipman, I am posting this for my mother, Marie Stokes Shipman. She has been diagnoised with Stage 2 colon cancer. This all started with a gal bladder removal that lead to CDIFF. She was treated over a period of months, finally beating that terrible infection and thinking things were going to get better. However, her symptoms still remained and progressed. We were at a loss to what was going on.

We finally took her to the University of Utah hospital and immediately they diagnoised her with Colon cancer. This was devasting as she had been sick for nearly a year already. However the doctor's are world renowned and see a healthy but long road to full recovery. She will begin Chemo/Radiation Therapy a week from this coming Monday for 4 weeks of treatment followed by surgery to remove the tumor. Full recovery is expected and she should be cancer free is the doctor's prognosis.

We plan to add short video clips of this process so everyone can see the tough but amazing journey to beating this terrible disease. 

She lives on a fixed income and the medical bills from copays are mounting quickly. Anything you can donate will be so greatly appreciated and we wish you many blessings!

Thank you for taking the time in being part of her recovery and have a wonderful new year!
