Mary's Medical Fund

Our good friend and colleague, Mary Thompson, is no longer able to work on a full time capacity with L&L Retail. She has been receiving cancer treatments, which have been a relentless battle for herself and her family. 

For those of you who have had a relationship with Mary and may never met her in person, we have attached a photo of her doing what she loves back in 2012.

Mary had fought and won her first cancer diagnosis back in December of 2012. She was cancer free for 3 years. However, in January 2016, the cancer returned with much disbelief. She started chemotherapy and during that time (just as in 2012) working as much as she was able. This teatment course was showing no signs of improvement. Therefore, in April 2017, she began receiving experimental treatments every other week at a cancer facility over 100 miles away in Tulsa. She would spend the entire week receiving treatment. The exhausting recovery of those treatments has made it just too difficult to retrun to work the following week as well. 

Mary has been with L&L Retail since July 2007 and worked with many of us before we began the company in 2003. Her dedication and work ethics have always been a great asset to our L&L family. So for the past several months, the company has been carrying her insurance coverage. However, it is with heavy heart that the company can no longer cover the cost of her health insurance coverage, and she will not be eligible for unemployment benefits as well. 

In an attempt to help with at least the cost of her health insurance coverage thru COBRA (which in itself is over $800 per month) but also to assist with the continuous added medical expenses (not to mention overages for this out of network facility that offers this therapy are extensiveand keep adding up each month), we are creating a Go FUND ME account. To at least help out to continue this very much needed insurance coverage over the next 12 months we have set a goal of $9600. 
We know that that money is tight for all of us at times, but please know that even a $5 donation can help to relieve some burden and stress from Mary and her husband David. 

We also ask that if you are unable to help at this time, please pass this on to those who you know that have been touched by Mary's friendship and keep Mary and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank You in advance for your support and kindness. 

The L&L Retail family.
