Please help offset/assist with co-pays and uncovered out of pocket medical expenses to alleviate the financial burden as Lily fights cancer!

My mother, Lily, was diagnosed with Non-hodgkins lymphoma just before Thanksgiving 2011. It is a week before Christmas and she recieved her first Chemothearapy treatment yesterday and one again today.

These treatments will be every 3 weeks for 8 months or more. Lily is on a fixed income and has medicare. Her portion of these Chemo treatments after medicare is $6000.00. Plus all the Doctors visit co-pays, lab tests, PET scans, hospitals is all out of pocket expenses. This is financially impossible for her to pay. Your donation wll help her get the medical treatment she needs to beat cancer!

She is a loving mother of 3 girls! I am her youngest daughter, Rachel Gunn. I have 2 sisters, Lena and Georgette. She is a Grandmother of 9. A great Grandmother of 5. We are all praying for her to get through this. She means so much to all of us and would hate to think of life without her!

The side effects of the Chemothearapy last from 3-5 days after each treatment. The more chemo she recieves the harder it will be on her. Weakend immune system, hair loss, loss of appitite, .......the list goes on!

My mother loved, nurtured, protected us, and took care of us since the day we were born!! Now it is time for us to return the favor!!

I wish I could take this all away from her! To have her well and worry free! Unfortunatley I can not. That is why I started this fundraiser!! I can help her by getting the word out!! This was she knows her treatment will be done and paid!

Lily needs to concentrate on one thing right now! To fight for her life and LIVE!!
