Medical bills and funeral cost for Cathy Courtney

Three weeks ago , Cathy started falling down at home and went to emporia hospital and had blood work done and they showed no results of illness. This continued to happen as she had went back home. Tiena Mason , her daughter said enough is enough and had her admitted to Richmond hospital. They did x-ray of her lungs and blood work. Cathy's blood work came back with her toxins level extremely high, and liver enzymes were extremely high as well. At this point they found cancer in her bones, liver and lung. They found out she had metastasize lung cancer and it was spreading rapidly! Cathy was given 2 weeks to 2 months to live.  It had only been 2 or so weeks since she has been diagnosed and her health has declined very fast. Cathy has won her battle to cancer on Feb 24 th at 12 :40 am. This is very disheartening for the family. Cathy has no life insurance and wants to be cremated and the family wants to have a memorial for her at the church they chose. The family is having a hard time with being able to afford all the accommodations she is going to need. If you can please find it in your heart to donate to Tiena Mason it would be much appreciated  being that all this was very unexpected and short coming. Any thing will help the family . I also have a Scentsy fundraiser open and if anyone buys from my website I will donate all of my 25 percent commission to Tiena for all the emergency bills she will need to pay. The link for my Scentsy website is Please check it out! Every bit counts!  Let's be a blessing to this family! If everyone could please share this go fund me the family would be forever grateful for your generosity and kindness. Have a blessed day and thanks for understanding.
