Family and friends of Nancy Mendez are trying to raise money to pay for expensive ovarian cancer treatments.

My sister, Nancy, was diagnosed with Stage 2 Ovarian Cancer earlier this year. The doctor went in and took her ovaries and all of the cancer. Or so we thought. Turns out her cancer is reoccurring and now there are additional treatments and medicines she needs to take, over and above her chemo.

Nancy is a 30 year old wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and mother of two. She has always been there when someone she cares about needs her. She took in our oldest niece when it was needed. She takes care of her husband's family when needed. Even now, when she's sick with cancer and constantly going to the doctors and feeling ill she manages to bring people where they need to go, help people out with their problems, make sure her kids have what they need, work, and try to go to school...all while dealing with cancer. She's an amazing person, but for all her amazing qualities, life has not been easy and having cancer just makes things harder.

Nancy and her husband both work. They try real hard to make ends meet and they often don't. She does the best she can, but often she has to borrow to make up the difference. Now she is borrowing to try to pay for expensive treatments that the doctor insist she needs and so I am asking for your help. Please help me by raising this money for Nancy so that she can get the treatments she needs and pay back those she has borrowed for so that she can try to fight this cancer and live for her family and for herself.

Thank you.
