Mary Hendrickson-Cancer Treatment

Our mother, Mary Hendrickson, has given her whole life to helping others.  Playing piano in churches since she was twelve, feeding the homeless, giving to orphanages in India, working with children and youth, nursing home ministry, while raising her four daughters.  As a single mom, she has given everything and now she needs our help.  Three weeks ago, she was told she has lymphoma cancer from a tumor behind her lungs that formed, grew, and then fractured one vertebrae.  She has never smoke in her life, so this was a shock to everyone. 

Today, she started chemo and will continue for four and half (4.5) months.  Afterwards, radiation and then surgery to repair the vertebrae.  She works a full-time job and now looking at weeks off while undergoing chemo and surgery.  We need YOUR help!  Not only will she have co-pays, out of pocket expenses that her health insurance will not cover, but also weeks and weeks of loss wages.  Honestly, if there was a time where our friends and family can surround us, it is now with your prayers and your financial help.  Even little gifts can add up to paying the rent, electric, and all the other medical bills to come. 

Would you PLEASE help my mom out?  If she has touched your heart in some way, please touch hers now.  If she is only known though other friends and family, please consider helping as well.  All funds will go directly into her checking account so she can pay bills as they come in.  This too will relieve the stress.  She is a wonderful mother, friend, and godly woman.  Thank you so much.
