Mary Pelkey's fight against cancer

Mary was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer that has metastasized to her liver. She is receiving chemotherapy to start on her road to beating the cancer. There will be many rounds of chemo, before surgery is used to help remove the cancer. As of right now, she has a very long, hard battle ahead of her, with the doctors feeling it will extend her life by 1-2 years. She insists she will beat this cancer.
We would like to ease the burden of worrying about medical expenses, which includes past, present and future hospital stays, chemotherapy, body scans, and prescriptions drugs. 
Those of you who know Mary, know what a wonderful woman she is. She is very kind hearted and cares about everyone. She would fight to the death for those she loves. She has 3 kids, 8 grandkids, and 2 great-grandkids. She has 7 siblings and 5 brothers in law.  Her huge family explains how Mary became the person she is. She has been fighting for so many of us, it's our turn to help fight with her. As you know , she hates being the center of attention and never wants anyone to worry about her, but I feel it's her turn. Please send her prayers and positve vibes!! All of us would appreciate anything you can do to help her.
