Tara's Ralley Against Cancer


For over 1 year my lovely wife of 18 years has been fighting stage III renal cell carcinoma/ collecting duct cancer which is very aggressive During this long battle she has been doing Chemo, Radiation along with RSO. Tara has tried to work as much as she could, unfortunately her treatments have made her very sick and she has been unable to work since December.  I have also had to take off quite a lot of time off of work and have depleted all vacation and sick time. Her right kidney is  being removed and her left kidney is only working at 40%,  do to a serious bacterial infection she has been battling in her kidneys that has worked it self to the surrounding organs that has made her extremely sick if they do not get the infection under control there is a possibility that she would need to do dyalisis and have to wait for a kidney transplant.  She has been in and out of the hospital for the past 3+ weeks.  We are not the type of people to ask for help out side of our family but do to this long battle we have been fighting it is time to ask for some help and support for my wife. Those who know my wife know that she would do anything for her family and friends, Tara is a strong independent woman who has a lot to live for and I have  complete faith she will when this battle. 
All donations will be used for medicine as well as medical bills and living expenses.
