The family and friends of Mary are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against lung cancer. Please show your support!

Mary has been for the past 2 years fighting Stage IV Lung Cancer. This is another killer in Women besides Breast Cancer. Mary is a volunteer board member of The Family Affair Foundation which is designed for wounded Vets and kids fighting a debilitating/life threatening illness and their families. Mary now has a chance to live a little longer with a new chemo drug that just came on the market for her. She is lucky enough to qualify in the 2% class that is eligible to take this drug and reduce the size of the tumors and help clear the fluid building in her lungs. The medication (pills) costs $10,500 per month. Her insurance picks up $5,500 leaving a balance of $5,000 out of pocket cost. Mary requires a minimum of 3 months supply to see some results but it is worth it to keep her alive. The chemo medication is called XALKORI. We all know in our hearts that this will help her to live longer, spend time with her family and be here for the Christmas Holiday Season. As a neighbor, friend and an American who does cherish life and this country we are asking for your help in raising money for this medication. Already the medical bills have mounted and will probably lose their home when she is gone. The medical bills are enormous as you know. With phone calls on a daily basis asking for payment. She can not work and her husband is working all the hours he can just to keep the house running. Their savings is gone along with so much of everything else! A fund has been set up to help us reach the $15,000 we need to purchase the medication. One month will not do we need to do 3 months to see any results. We all want her around for the Christmas Season; even if it may be her last but at least it will be a very special one for her and her family.

We received an awesome donation from a friend at our church for $5,000.00. So we are so close to reaching our goal.
