Pam Ward Lung Cancer Battle Fund

As many of you know, my mom, Pam Ward, was diagnosed with stage IV non small cell lung cancer (nsclc) and has begun treatment at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.

The current plan is chemotherapy and immunotherapy every three weeks with a potential for radiation. We are also still waiting for a full diagnosis and plan about her hips, which could require a full replacement.

The expenses are beginning to weigh on us and we don't know how long we will be dealing with it all.

It's excellent care by one of the best, but it's a 60 mile drive for up to two hours with bad traffic. She has constant appointments for check-ups, lab tests, imaging, rehabilitation, etc., so that's a lot of gas, parking fees, and lodging for early/back-to-back appointments.

We've also needed to purchase equipment and supplies such as hospital bed, linens, walker... and anticipate more.

And then maybe someone to assist and clean as well as flights for Janene to travel between home in San Diego and Maryland to help.

They also need to make the house more accessible because moving is currently not an option.

And, of course, their income is directly affected when unable to work. It's a lot.

We're contacting organizations that could help offset some expenses and provide services.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Many friends and survivors have already been helpful with information and support.

Thank you so much for everything❤️
