Pink Is Rhonda's New Black

My close friend and co-worker, Rhonda Terris, had the recommended yearly breast exam.  She felt no concern as the previous years exam came back as anticipated.  Nothing there.  However, this exam found several oddities that turned out to be cancerous.  She has had two surgeries and has had to miss numerous unpaid days from her main job.  She has a second job as a waitress on the weekends that she has not been able to return to yet due to the lifting that is required.  After both surgeries, she has gone back to her main job earlier than what the doctor would have liked. 

She does have insurance, but like so many insurance plans, the deductible is extremely high.  Luckily, she has been able to work enough to keep her share of the insurance premium covered.  Rhonda will be starting radiation soon, which will require daily trips to Idaho Falls for treatment for approximately six weeks.  She lives in Star Valley Ranches and works in Jackson.  She will be looking at around a 240 mile round trip from Star Valley to Idaho Falls to Jackson and back to Star Valley.  It will be about 4.5 hours of driving time every work day (that is if she feels well enough to work) and about 2.5 hours on weekends.

Rhonda has been trying to keep a positive outlook through all of this, but her unpaid monthly bills are becoming a stress that she can not avoid and yet cannot pay.  This Go Fund Me is being set up to aid her with the daily living expenses, regular monthly bills, and some of the medical bills that are trickling in.  

Any amount that can be contributed will be of immense help to Rhonda and her family during this time.
