We need to quickly raise money for Teri Obrien to get Issels treatments. Insurance will not pay for it. Money should not determine life or death when a treatment is right there and may save her. Please help cure her cancer. She has fought so hard.

Hello everyone! For those of you who know Teri O'brien, and even for those of you who may not, on November 14th she was diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer in the fourth stage. Unfortunately it has already spread to her brain, stomach, and liver as well, causing several inoperable tumors. Although this considered to be an incurable disease ,we have found a treatment option that has been proven to cure this particular type of rapid spreading cancer along with others. It's called the Issels treatment, which there is a link below that can explain it better. The problem is that it's not covered by any insurance company and has to be paid upfront. The cost for this treatment is almost 20,000. We as her family and friends are trying to raise a fund for the Issels treatment so she can take this further treatment option.

Teri is a beautiful woman, inside and out. She is a cherished by her son, grandson, family and friends. Her doctor has recently told her that Issels treatments are her only hope. We need to raise money FAST. Please, send this page to everyone you know. If we could raise the money for this treatment, it could save her ...and we may be blessed with her presence for many years to come. Please give what you can, even if it is just the time to send this page to others. Thank you.


Any funds raised that are not used directly for the treatments will go to the family for other associated costs and arrangements
