Please help me help them to make life a little better for them. Please donate what you can. God bless and thank you.

Katherine Martel is a 15 year old girl who, until last summer was healthy.  In August, last year, she had headaches and nausea and was taken to the hospital where they found spots on her brain, later to find out they were brain tumors.  She had a seizure in the Emergency Room and enroute to Boston Childrens Hospital she had a stroke.  She has undergone 6 months of chemotherapy and 6 weeks of proton radiation.  She has been doing PT, OT and Speech therapy since August, 2011, to re-learn to walk and speak and motion control. All of this making it difficult for her mom to go work because of Katherine's schedule and because Katherine cannot be left alone at home. To make matters worse, Katherine's step-father, Lisa's husband, has now informed her on Sunday that he no longer wants to be in this marriage.  He feels that he has done enough and is drained and wants to get off this sinking ship. They now have no income coming in and cannot maintain the household without any income.  They do not know what to do at this point or how they will get to doctors appointments or therapy visits.  The tumors are still there and they have to have another MRI done to decide what the next step is.  I want to try and raise some money so that they can stay in their home and buy some time to figure this all out and be concentrating on Katherine's health and not when the utilities will be shut off or they will be evicted.  The bills are already coming in for this month and there isn't any money to pay them.  Please find it in your heart to give what you can.  Every penny is a penny closer to giving them a short-term piece of mind so they can focus on Katherine's health.  My heart goes out to them.
