Our beautiful mom, Beverly Bundy-Kirkman, found out in July that she has stage 4 cancer. She had melanoma in 2006 and had the spot removed by a dermatologist. It has come back and is in her lung now. Obviously we were devastated by this news. She had to spend a week in the hospital and has gone back to stay twice since then for minor complications. She hasn't been able to work since June, when she first started experiencing symptoms and due to a paperwork snafu, she is still waiting for disability to kick in for all of that time. She's doing good right now, responding well to the targeted therapy meds that she takes orally each day. These cost $11,000 per month but luckily her insurance covers most of it. She does have medical expenses for hospital, scans, tests, doctor visits, etc along with her regular living expenses and she could use some financial assistance in the short run. If you have anything to spare, your thoughtfulness and generosity would be greatly appreciated. If you know Beverly personally, you know she's a wonderful person who would do anything for anybody. She is an amazing mother and we are so grateful to still have her with us. Last month she had to replace her stove and furnace, and I know she is stressing about finances. That is the last thing we want for her to have to worry about! If all you can offer is prayers and positive thoughts at this time, we'll gladly take that!!! We'd like to keep this a secret (she's not on FB) and present any donations to her at Christmas so please don't mention this to her. We can post an update when the time comes!!
