YOU can help raise the funds for my mommy, Willa Ray's, cancer surgery!!

UPDATE:
My Mom had her surgery at Cedars-Sinai.

The doctor was able to scrape the abdominal mass off of the colon, uterus, sacrum bone, etc. Both ovaries were removed.

Her diagnosis is: Ovarian Cancer 1-C.

We are praying for wisdom about what follow-up treatment is best for our Mom.

Thanks for your donations and prayers!

Our Mother, Willa, was diagnosed with a large abdominal mass a few months ago. The doctor's assessment was ovarian cancer and possibly colon cancer. Although the doctor believed this tumor to be malignant cancer, he was unable to operate for a variety of reasons including: anemia, low blood levels, and swollen liver. Unfortunately, this hospital ended up being a less than adequate facility, with outdated technology. In the meantime, we have found a better hospital for our Mommy, Willa, with more up to date equipment, so that she can have her surgery. While we are applying for funding for this expensive operation, not everything will be covered. The Rays are seeking funding for this surgery from friends and loved ones who would like to help. Our hospital of choice is, Cedars-Sinai, in Los Angeles. She will also be having some specialized treatments in San Diego. If you would like to donate please do so on this website. We have lowered our goal amt to $30,000, since we've been able to fund some of the treatment with the help of additional friends & loved ones. If you'd like to email my mom and send her some encouraging words, I know she would LOVE that! Her email is mwrayfam@sbcglobal.net. Please be patient if her responses are brief as she needs a lot of rest. You can donate using a debit card or credit card on this site, or you can send a check made payable to "Wilhelmina Ray" and send it to: Wilhelmina Ray 32295-8 Mission Trail #429 Lake Elsinore, CA 92530 Willa's kids (and her husband Mark, of 36 years) truly appreciate your kindness and generosity. We really can't thank you enough! With Thanks and Appreciation, Linnea Ray and The Ray Family
