Help Lauren Marie Kehl beat cancer

This is my daughter, Lauren Marie Kehl. She is 31 and has a 5-year-old daughter. She is a teacher in Chicago Heights, IL where she teaches junior high band. Lauren needs your help. On Feb 23, 2015 Lauren had a colonoscopy following severe stomach pain. During the examination doctors found a tumor. Due to her low blood count Lauren was admitted to the hospital. After further testing Lauren was diagnosed with stage 4-colon cancer. The cancer has spread to her liver. Lauren has met with doctors at Bernard Mitchell Hospital at University of Chicago Medicine. Lauren started her Chemo treatments March 4th. She went from diagnosis to chemo treatment in one week. Unfortunately many of the costs associated with Chemotherapy are not covered by insurance and throughout the Chemo treatments Lauren will be unable to work. We could really use some help. Through all the bad news Lauren is very optimistic and refuses to give up the fight, she has remained a loving mother, and caring daughter, sister, friend, and educator to her music students. It will take tremendous strength and courage to fight this battle and one worry she doesn't need, is mounting bills. All donations big and small are greatly appreciated!
