RachelBroadbentCollier CANCER fund

Rachel Broadbent Collier is a working mother who, at 39 years old, was found to have Stage 2B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. She is pictured above 2nd from the left with 8 of her 9 siblings. She and her husband Stephen work full time to support their children. Rachel did not have Insurance when diagnosed. Like too many working people, Rachel and Stephen chose to take care of the kids and pay bills while taking a calculated risk for themselves as "young and healthy." Rachel first noticed a prominent lump had formed in her chest in summer of 2018. She was concerned but wanted to downplay her worries. She made the brave decision to get a costly biopsy. On Wednesday October 3rd the results showed a form of blood cancer: Hodgkins lymphoma. This biopsy was able to be performed in her hometown of Perryton Texas, but to further monitor and treat the cancer she began traveling back and forth to the Hem-oncologist in Amarillo (240 miles roundtrip) several times monthly. Thousands of dollars have been spent up to this point on visits, tests, labs, scans, procedures and chemotherapy treatments. Thankfully the chemotherapy, while so very costly, is proving SUCCESSFUL! Recent scans show the aggressive cancer growing in her chest and neck is now DEAD!! She still may require radiation, but won't know for sure until after chemotherapy is completed and scans are performed in late April. Rachel works as much as possible around her chemo treatments, and her employer has been so patient with her MANY missed days! She secured insurance starting in January 2019 with the only carrier around here which had her cancer doctor in network, so it remains to be seen how much of her care will actually be covered. Regardless of the cost, Rachel WILL AND MUST continue treatments and follow up care deemed necessary by her doctor! Please donate to her campaign and share her story with as many people as you can! No gift is too small, so please share her story and check back often for updates! #GodIsGood
