medical expenses

$4,675 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 49 people in 8 months
My name is Terri Baldwin.
   I came to South Flordia from New Jersey in the late 1980's. I am a water fitness instructor and I teach swim lessons to all ages; babies to adults. I also work with the Parkinson's group and helped designed a fun-filled waterprogram for this group.
   I needed surgery on my esophagus this fall. I missed weeks of work but came back  still having issues. I sought another doctor and they discovered a cancerous tumor in my esophagus. 
   I have started radition and chemo treatments to shrink the tumor and will need another surgery. 
   I am a mom and breadwinner for me and my son. Please consider supporting me during this difficult time.
  Due to the fact the insurance coverage is uncertain at this point the funds are needed to cover the medical treatments. Since  my job requires physical activities I am unable to work at this time. Funds  may be needed for living expenses. I need help to beat this horrible disease cancer.

This is George,
For those of you that don't here I'm the significant other, enough said!
Terri has been overwhelmed by her support from all of you, she loves you all!
It has been a very rough few months for her, stage 3 esophagus cancer was discovered the week after Thanksgiving, she did 5 rounds of chemo and 28 days of radiation simultaneously. The weight loss was tremendous at one point she was at 94lbs!
Enough said about that current update, Terri on last Wednesday went for a major surgery, a esophagectomy, which removes the entire esophagus along with the top of stomach. They reconnect the stomach to the top part of the esophagus, it eventually will act as normal, very invasive surgery but she as wonder woman came out strong. She is still in the hospital in miami in great care, and looking forward to getting home and back to a normal life!
The actual consumption of food will a bit (2-4) months for normal, but its a positive! The next sentence i will write in all caps! PATHOLOGY REPORT CAME BACK TONIGHT AND TERRI IS CANCER FREE! Thank you all! I will give a report soon after she comes home!
Love you all!
Have no idea why this pic is sideways!
