Nurse Darla Needs Help

$6,200 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 67 people in 6 months

A friend to humans and animals alike, Darla needs your help.

Some garbled words led to a brain scan that determined Darla had a 2" brain tumor. Sadly, her insurance is lacking because she took a break between nursing jobs. (3/21/18 Found out Darla has insurance! Update in comment section below.)

Born and raised in Ohio, Darla became a traveling nurse. After working several assignments in Deming, NM, Darla decided to become a "Demonite". She fell in love with the weather and the people. One day into her new full time job with Mimbres Memorial Hospital, Darla was given the news of her brain tumor. How could this be? Just 52 years old.

Long story short, Darla and her family are in need of donations to help pay medical bills, etc. 

The good news.... Darla had her surgery and the tumor was removed in full. She is recovering much quicker than anyone could possibly have hoped for. It's going to be a journey of patience and physical therapy, but Darla is strong and her friends and family expect her to have a 100% recovery and return to nursing where she can continue to give of herself and get back to her favorite hobbies, dogs and golf!

And don't forget about this everyone.... a few months ago this statement was made by Lori Mercer and Darla's sister Sue Ann:
“Hi Debbie, ... put this on go fund me if $50,000 is hit I'll shave my head and sister Sue Ann said the same”"

Today is another long and toxic chemo day. Darla’s worked her twelve hour hospital shift last night, so she will probably sleep through today’s treatment.
She has missed some work days and takes lots of naps when she can because of these treatments. They are really hard on her, harder than she remembered doing with her last cancer bouts.
Two more like this and then she’ll switch to lighter dose, weekly treatments.
Darla has been out and about but it’s clear she is tired. We recently went golfing and I grabbed a few shots to show you all her love for life. She is making the best of a crappy situation. Go Darla, we love you!
The bills are still coming in. Your donations and support mean so much to her. She gets teary when she speaks of the support.
Thank you all.

Looking good on the outside... suffering in the inside.
A note from sister Sue Ann:
“My sister went back to work Thursday, 3 days after a chemo treatment, and she is miserable. This chemo is wrecking havoc on her poor body and she doesn't complain or ask why me. She is simply happy to be alive, which we all should be. I'm 1600 miles away and feeling totally helpless. I'd just like to ask that you take a minute to lift my sister in prayer and also to be thankful for the life we have all been given!! Thanks all and remember to count your blessings!!!”

Hi all. It has been over a month since they found the cancer (2” tumor) in my head. It has taken me a bit, but I feel almost 100% these days. My brain works and my body works too soooo who can complain?? I know many of you have sent me cards, well wishes, and much money and I am forever grateful for the kindness. I have not worked in more than 2 months and the money has helped me pay some bills and pay for my meds. I just want to say thank you for your time and your love. I really
Don’t have the right words to tell you how much it means to me. Much love to you all ❤️❤️ Darla
