Stage 4 Lung Cancer Finances

Hello,

I am posting this GoFundMe up to help my Aunt Abby. She is 68 years old and in need of your help. In June 2018 she was diagnosed with Stage Four lung cancer. The tumor is inoperable, so her doctors turned to heavy, expensive medication to try and treat her. She has health insurance, but they are only covering a small fraction of her medical bills. The cost of just staying alive has eaten through her entire life savings. She has been through three different types of treatment to date, each more expensive than the previous.

Our family has tried to support her but has reached the point where we have to ask for help in this time of need. She can no longer afford her apartment and must move. She does not have the strength to walk up stairs, so must be on the ground floor. She has always been a kind and caring woman. She took care of her mother during her decay with Alzheimer's and her brother when he was diagnosed with throat cancer. We are asking for donations to help with her treatment, and her living situation as my uncle is taking care of her. She has never smoked a day in her life and doesn't deserve this burden. She will be homeless with her brother who is still working and trying to care for her by early March if we do not get help.

Every little bit you can give is appreciated. Aunt Abby has had two back surgeries due to fragile bones and many more procedures which I will include in an update when I have dates and times. I have also attached just one of the bills to show how costly this has been.

Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated. Even if you just pass this link around it would be helpful. We just want to cover the cost of her medicine and a small place for her to be comfortable.

Thank you, and God bless.

 

This was her before the Cancer with one of my young cousins.
