Hallie's MD Anderson Bill

$4,015 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 45 people in 37 months
As many of you know, our daughter, Hallie was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma in November of 2011 at the age of 21.  After undergoing chemo treatments at MD Anderson in Houston, she is doing really well, with scans showing no active cancer. She will remain under the care of MD Anderson for 2 more years.

With MD Anderson being an out of state facility, our health insurance only covers 80% of Hallie's medical bills.  She now owes $25,000 with the bill increasing by $3500 with every 6 month follow up visit to MD Anderson.

Hallie graduated on May 16th from Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas with 
a degree  as a radiology technologist.  We realize that it is a huge debt for Hallie and raising it all will be next to impossible, but just this small amount will help reduce it.   I know that it will be a big relief to her to be able to pay some more on this bill.  

Please consider donating to help Hallie and as always, please keep Hallie in yours prayers as she continues to "fight like a girl" against cancer!

All donations will go to MD Anderson to reduce her debt to them. You may also mail donations care to Hallie at 22525 Fairway View, Zachary, La 70791 if you do not wish to donate online.

A LOT has happened since last update! Hallie graduated from Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas in May of 2016 as a radiology technician and is now employed as a rad tech at Our Lady of The Lake in Baton Rouge. Samuel finished up in the Marines and moved to Zachary to be close to Hallie. He was hired by The East Baton Parish Sheriff's Department and is a deputy sheriff. They were married on October 8, 2016 and bought a house in Zachary. Lots of great things happening in their lives!

Hallie remains cancer free and goes for yearly checkups. The MD Anderson bill is still there and we pay what we can on it each month. Any donation would be greatly appreciated! It will be a great day when we no longer have the burden of this bill.

We thank God everyday for Hallie's healing and for the amazing doctors and staff at MD Anderson!

So Grateful for the donation that we just received. Thank you so much to a wonderful friend that faithfully gives $25 a month to Hallie's MD Anderson bill. This is SO big, because now that bill will not increase anymore since Hallie cannot go there because of my new health insurance. Finally, we will be able to one day see a light at the end of that tunnel.
Sweet little Hallie

Appreciate the prayers as Hallie goes to a Baton Royge oncologist tomorrow afternoon. Trying to get her CT scan with contrast done here in Baton Rouge since MD Anderson turned her away in June because of my new health insurance. My insurance says that she needs to get a referral from a local oncologist so we meet with one tomorrow at 3:30pm.

It has been a while since I updated. We have friends and family that have gone through so much lately, that, in my heart, I just couldn't post. A friend asked me today why I was not posting the GoFundMe website on Facebook and I just had to tell her, that I had to step back because of the trials and pain that some dear friends and family were enduring, but God has worked miracles in these friends' and families' lives. What a testament to the power of God! We have seen the miracles in Hallie's life and now to see it in others...what a joy!

The MD Anderson bill is still there. (Boo) It only increased a little with the last visit in June because MD Anderson would not take my new health insurance without a HUGE deductible being paid that day. They drew her blood and then realized that I had new insurance and sent me to the business office to get the bad news. So we left Houston without a CT scan with contrast. Good news is that our new GP is working to get that test done here in Baton Rouge real soon, so that it will not be "out of network" and will not cost as much. I have to admit, that it is making me nervous that Hallie could not have that scan done on time and I am ready to do whatever is necessary financially or otherwise, to get it done. As the mother of a child that has had cancer, there are no sweeter words than those that say there is no evidence of new cancer growth and I want to hear those words again.

Thank you so much to those of you who donate on a monthly basis. I have never thanked you here and I just want you to know that we are so grateful for the donation that you make each month to Hallie's medical bills.

On a happier note, Hallie and Samuel became engaged on July 1st! The wedding is planned for October 8, 2016 at Plains Presbyterian Church in Zachary, La. I know that I speak for Glenn, too when I say that we thank God for sending Samuel into Hallie's life. She is actively seeking employment in the radiology tech field in which she graduated from Angelina College, thanks to Randy and Sally, in May. I just know that the right job is somewhere out there for Hallie.

Why do I know that? Because, as with everything that has happened in Hallie's life, since she was diagnosed with cancer in November of 2011, God has been with her and I know that He will continue to guide her. What a humbling experience it has been as her mother, to travel this journey with her and we thank God everyday for the friends and family that have been there...prayed for her, helped us financially, have been our rock and support when we needed it most.

The journey continues. Please continue to pray for Hallie...and now Samuel, too, as he gets out of the Marines in November. The donations surely help with the MD Anderson bill and medical bills here in Baton Rouge, but the prayers sustain and help us to carry on. Thank you, from Hallie, Tommie, Glenn and I... from the bottom of our hearts.

Kathy, I don't believe medical is supposed to negatively affect one's credit. Have you had someone look into this? Could you set up a monthly payment of, say, $50--something manageable. As long as the agreed upon amount is paid, there should be no negativity. I don't know one, but there should be a credit expert to help you sort this through. It's a shame that she has to suffer any type of negative result through this situation that isn't her fault. Good luck with continued fund raising efforts.
