Please help to support the Valerie Dean leukemia fund. These funds will be used to cover expenses not covered by insurance.

My name is Valerie Dean. I was diagnosed with leukemia on 11-24-2010. This has been very difficult for me. I am 41 years old. I have been "healthy" all of my life. I was taken off of work for several months during my treatment. I have one 17 year old daughter named Courtney. She has been such a blessing to me through all of this. She lost her father (which was my husband at the time) when she was only 2 years old. She's so afraid of losing me too. She just graduated from high school with honors. It's been just the two of us for over 15 years.
I am back to work, but I am struggling so hard to get caught back up on my bills. During this time, I did receive disability from my job, but it was just not enough income to pay everything. I am currently 1 month behind on my rent. My landlord has been very kind, but is losing patience. I make enough money to keep up with the current bills, but I just don't make enough to pay what's behind. I am a believer and I have strong faith. I believe that everything happens for a reason. When I first got the news I was devastated. I'm human. But I quickly got it together. It was obviously in his plan.
Being off of work has drained me financially. I can only hope and pray that I can get some sense of normalcy back into my life. Any donation would be so greatly appreciated. No amount is too small.
Thank you and God bless
Valerie and Courtney
