Help Me Beat Cancer

My name is Leticia Bastyr. I'm a 47 year old wife and mother. I've just been diagnosed with stage 4 non small cell lung cancer. I'm told I have 6 months without treatment but with treatment a year and a half, 2, 3 or 4 maybe more. My youngest daughter just got married in May. With my children grown, I was looking forward to grandchildren and living the next chapter of my life foot loose with my husband. It seems God has a different plan. He is sending me into the fight for my life. I'm asking for your help to beat cancer.. I have insurance with a deductible of 3500.00 then it will pay 80/20 up to 7000.00 out of pocket. I have recently started a new job so I do not have any paid time off and don't qualify for LOA until I've worked 1200 plus hours. I'm going to try to work as long as I can. However I'm already so incredibly tired and having trouble thinking clearly between the pain and anxiety medication. I'm trying to manage the pain with Tylenol and just deny the anxiety I'm having, in order to keep my wits about me. I won't kid you or myself.. this is hard and I've only just begun. I know I have to try to keep my job to retain the life insurance policy. Truth is I just want to curl up in a ball and cry but I know I have to be strong, stronger than I've ever been. It's hard to ask for help. I'm normally a very independent woman But I need help to cover the expenses of getting to treatment, covering my insurance deductible, other uncovered medical cost and possibly funeral expenses. As well as covering living expenses if/when I become too sick to work. I have terrific friends who are being very supportive but my circle is small and full of people with little extra cash in their pockets. I'm a pretty shy girl and don't have that large of a network of friends so I'm asking everyone to please share this in hopes of finding help. I'm grateful for any help you can offer, small donations will add up.
