Help Me Win My Battle! Cancer

Hello! Thank you for visiting my page. For those of you who do not know me, I'm a 38 year old single mom who was in remission from CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) since October, but for the past several months have been experiencing the symptoms of this disease--my daily fevers are over 103!) Unfortunately, my Oncologist predicts that I will need treatment, but can not be completely positive until he runs some extremely expensive tests. I have a bone marrow test on Thursday which I have rescheduled twice because I was left inuinsured, a PET scan, iron infusions, about 8 prescriptions, two procedures at my Gastroenterologist  and a new primary care physcian because my new insurance plan requires referrals for specialists as well as an enormous deductible. I also still owe LIJH $1,000 for my surgery back in February 2013-the surgery which verified that I had stage IV cancer, additionally, I have $1400 in oncology bills from when I was unknowingly left uninsured in July.

I'm in pretty bad financial shape right now due to personal reasons which I can't write about on here, and I'm trying to tap into my TDA, but with all the red tape, that could take up to 45 working days.

For those of you who do know me, you know that I have very few child care options and need to pay for someone to watch my little girl while her Mama runs around trying to get well. You would also know that asking for ANYTHING is so difficult for me and this is a truly humbling experience. No amount is too small and I appreciate any donation--even an offer to babysit while I see my doctors. I was fighting this battle alone until it reached the point where I realized I needed to reach out for help. I can't work and can't depend on steady support to keep me and my daughter strong and healthy--both physically (me) and emotionally (her).  Thank you so for reading about my "cause". I'm hopeful I can raise enough funds to maintain my health and child care needs. I'm truly appreciative and humbled by starting this campaign. Thank you!
