Sara Derrico's Medical Fund

$4,055 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 26 months
My sweet friend Sara was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer (of an unknown primary, which is very rare) on Feb 21st, after weeks of strange headaches and dizziness.  After multiple tests and scans, the doctors still haven't found an origin. She has multiple lesions: three on her C-spine, one on her boracic, one in her right seventh bone and two in her lumbar. Because of this, her spine is not stable so most likely after chemo, she will also need to have back surgery. Sara and her husband, Eric, now have to put William, their three year old son, in some sort of daycare over the summer because Sara cannot lift over 5 pounds, bend at the waist, or bend at the knees. She is very limited on activity because of the holes on her spine. Sara's chemo treatments will go throughout the summer. She will be traveling back and forth to Jacksonville, FL from Hahira, GA in order to receive the best possible care. All of her family is trying to help the best they can, but everyone lives out of town with full time jobs. We are asking for any help at all, even a simple prayer is appreciated. Any money raised will go toward Sara's medical bills (the current amount owed is $10,500), traveling costs and child care costs.

Any and all necessities are appreciated. If you would like to mail the boys (Andrew, 12, Jacob, 9, and Will, 3) snacks, or mail directly to the the family (through Amazon or Target) please contact me and I will provide you with her address.

Thank you!
Liberty Hancock

save me and I shall be saved
for you are my praise.

4-24-17 Today's update from Sara:
So today is the day. On Saturday I noticed some tingling in my scalp, and sure enough, yesterday my hair started falling out. I went ahead and shaved it off today, which was quite an empowering experience. So thankful for my beautiful scarves Friends have sent. Still feeling blessed and ready for this fight❤️

Today was a good day. All of my blood counts are great, chemo went smooth, and I had some good conversations with a fellow patient and the hospital chaplain. I know I got this! You guys are so good for the soul, and trust me when I say all of you are playing a part in this battle! Your support keeps me going, and I love you all! I keep getting told my smile and positivity lights up the room. How can I not smile when I have family, friends, God, Jesus, and a team of loved ones watching down ready to battle with me? This cancer never even stood a chance! Love all of you to the moon and back❤️

Good evening friends. Once again, we are so gracious for everyone’s support! We are indeed without insurance, but everyone’s donations are definitely helping to ease some worry. My biggest concern right now is our rent. Eric has been applying for jobs nonstop since Sunday. He has applied for unemployment, but that unfortunately can take a month to start getting. Anything you contribute helps towards that. As soon as my radiation is complete, my plan is to try going back to work again. This has been quite a humbling experience, but it’s just not only about me and Eric, but our three sons. Thank you all, and God Bless❤️❤️
