Sandi Burns beat cancer fund

My name is Sandi Burns, and I'm battling cancer: round two!  I beat colon cancer a few years ago, but now it has morphed and returned in the shape of stage 3 breast cancer.  I thought I was a pro at defeating it since I had already been through it once, but boy, was I wrong!  A whole new set of challenges and difficulties stunned me.  Though I was mentally prepared for this fight, my body is struggling.  I have had to have less intense and more frequent chemo treatments, because my body couldn't handle the full chemo dose.  I have been hospitalized a few times already because of this.  As you may have guessed, with more hospitalizations and treatments come increase costs.  So, I'm appealing to you for help in covering the rapidly increasing financial burden that I now have to carry in addition to my disease.
I have been blessed to be able to continue working some days, but my monthly income has now decreased.
 I live alone, and am no longer able to cover the cost of rent and medications.  I have a $10,000 bill from one of the clinics; my 20% insurance copay has not been factored into this, and the oncologist is planning to have me undergo surgery in January.

My goal is to raise $25,000 to cover the current bills, medication, rent, surgery copay, and recovery costs.

 I want to thank you in advance for contributing to this need: it will allow me to pour my energy into fighting the cancer.

God bless,
