Medical expenses for Kala Phillips

My name is Kala Jones Phillips. I am the wife of Donald, and the daughter of Mike and Anita White Jones. I am a 2006 graduate of ELHS and a 2010 graduate of Athens State University. I also attend worship service every chance that I can at Dancy's Chapel Church of Christ. In October 2012, I was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer. It started in my colon and spread to my bloodstream, lungs, lymph nodes, spine, where a tumor had to be removed and part of my vertebrae was eaten through by the cancer, and in a lymph node in my stomach, that is currently pressing on a tube in my bladder that prevents me from emptying out completely, so I have to have surgery every 3-4 months to have a stint put in from the bladder to the kidney. I was a 6th grade teacher at Moulton Middle School and I substituted for a while until my immune system became low and the doctor did not want me in public around a lot of germs, so I stayed inside a lot. I have been very sick and in a lot of pain lately, so I have been in the hospital 11 days in the last month. I have had a total of 48 radiation treatments and undergone four and a half years of off and on chemo treatments at Clearview Cancer Center in Decatur, AL. Anything that you could do financially or through prayer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
