Sandy's Medical and Utility Fund

On September 1, 2016 Sandy Raphel was diagnosed with colon cancer.  During the past 15 months Sandy has undergone chemo, radiation, multiple visits in the emergency room and four major surgeries. 

The radiation caused serious burns to her body. Due to the severity of the surgeries and burns Sandy was unable to go to work. The last surgery Sandy had put her in the hospital for five weeks. 

Because of Sandy being in the hospital and the severity of her surgery she is unable to work. Medical and living expenses have been piling up and Sandy has fallen behind on all her bills.

The kind of surgery Sandy had requires in-home care and specialized wound care. Out of pocket cost for in-home and specialized wound care, prescription and medical cost are expensive which insurance only partially covers. 

Sandy has touched so many lives and people, now it’s our turn to help her.  Please help Sandy with her medical expenses, rent, and utility bills by donating whatever you can as soon as possible.  Every dollar counts. 

 Thank you in advance for helping our friend Sandy!
