Family and friends of Shelby Cedrone are raising money to cover the $5000 deductible for her "Take Down" surgery for Ulcerative Colitis.

This is my beautiful, strong, lovely friend Shelby.

She is 21 years old.

Over a year ago she underwent her FIRST surgery for Ulcerative Colitis, a condition which attacks the large intestine, called a proctocolectomy with ileostomy, which removes the entire large intestine.

After a year of chemotherapy treatments, she lost almost 50 pounds and was on 13 pills a day.

Having undergone her SECOND surgery and treatment, a Ileoanal Anastomosis total, just before Christmas this year, she needs to have her THIRD and hopefully final surgery within a few months.

She just found out this week that her workplace changed insurance companies as of January 1st, and needs to pay a $5,000 deductible before she can undergo surgery.

She has exhausted all of the possibilities for financial aid for this surgery, and really needs help.

As it stands, the incision from her second surgery is not healing properly.

Please, if you can donate anything, even $1, she would be so eternally thankful.

Repost where you can.
