Stage 4 Colon Cancer

December of 2018, instead of spending time with family as usual for the Holidays, my beautiful sister began a new journey.  The week of Christmas she was taken to emergency room where they discovered a mass in her colon and she was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer.  She was taken for emergency surgery where she had 70% of her intestines removed and a couple more surgeries due to difficulties.  There is still a long road ahead for her on her journey as she still needs to start Chemotherapy. Fatigue, constant nausea, surgery, stress, fear of the unknown, worried about work, helping maintain her family, keeping a positive outlook is a true test of willpower and self discipline and focus.  My sister is pushing through and fighting this to the best of her ability. She is a fighter, always has been!

Going through Cancer doesn’t only test a person’s physical health, emotional strength and the bond of one’s relationships.  It is a vicious disease that infiltrates every facet of a person’s life.  While we are all ready to help MaryLou fight this head-on, we anticipate huge financial stress as she has depleted her leave pay at work, hospital copays and coinsurance fees, consultation expenses, increased insurance premiums, specialty medications, external care, family needs and upkeep. 

I am humbly asking you to help my sister in any amount you can so that she and family can focus all of their attention and efforts to their fight against cancer. Please know that any help will forever be appreciated.
