She is a strong woman and says she is at peace with the physical healing of her body, but is struggling with the knowledge of what this will mean to her boys. Her wish is to keep life for them as normal as possible through this process and limit their anxiety. Luckily, she has a long list of people who are more than willing to help her with this wish.
Her most immediate need, besides a great number of prayers, is financial support. She's about to bear the financial burden that leave without pay, (while still having to pay her medical insurance each month to avoid loss of coverage) and medical bills will put on her. Her first appointment cost her over $1600 out of pocket and her next doctor's office has already informed her that it will cost her over $600 out of pocket just to put a picc line in for her chemotherapy treatments.
Anything you are able to contribute, big or small, is appreciated! Please continue to pray for Shannon's continued positivity and a quick, pain-free recovery. For updates on Shannon's journey, visit www.caringbridge.org/visit/shannonwoodard.
