She needs a full hysterectomy (including ovaries). Sadly after much debate and arguing with the insurance company they are not willing to pay for the ovaries being removed as there is no cancer in them at this time. The only way they will pay for it is if she can prove this likely path with a test result showing she has the corrupt gene(s). Myriad (the company that does the test) is trying to find some options to help with the cost but it is not likely in the time she has. Her doctor says she will need to be in surgery no later than a month from now, even if she has to go with the partial hysterectomy that the insurance company will pay for. This is not the best option for her because even with close monitoring the doctor may not catch the cancer in the ovaries before it metastasizes. Myriad is holding her sample for testing in hopes that we are able to pay for the test and get the surgery she needs. We need your help and support to come up with the money to perform this test and provide funds for co-payments, transportation, medications, and after surgery care. She will likely be unable to perform normal activity for at least 3-6 months after this extensive surgery.
If everyone we know and everyone you know donated what they could, we could make a huge difference to the health of my sister and save her family from more heartbreak. Please pass this along to everyone you know. Thank you for your time, love, and support. It is not always easy to ask for help, but we sincerely need it.
