Patty Fink's Medical Expenses

This is my mother, Patricia (Patty) Fink. Patty was diagnosed with Metastatic Squamous Carcinoma of the neck, throat, and tongue on September 28, 2017. She received a very invasive surgery on November 16th, which included removing 72 lymph nodes, half of her tongue and reconstructing it using the skin, muscle, and vessels taken from her fore arm. The next step is for her to receive radiation and chemo treatments for at least six weeks. Her first treatment will begin on January 4th. Radiation will be given five days a week, and chemo one day a week. This will take place at John Hopkins Hospital, and she will travel home on the weekends. She will be accompanied by her very supportive husband, Mike, who has stood by her side the past three months and will continue to do so. He has been on the waiting list to get a room through the American Cancer Society with no luck, and time is running short. The expense of travel, stay, and everyday living goes on while work has come to a halt. We're asking for donations to support this couple, but even more than that, we ask for your prayers. We believe our God is bigger than cancer and we know through Him, Patty is an overcomer! Thank you for your generosity and we pray God will bless you greatly as you bless others.
Even if you can't give financially, we ask for your support through prayer and to please share this link on your page as well.
