This is Cherie's Cancer Fight Fund. Friends and Family are uniting to raise money for medical costs and expenses not covered by insurance.

In February 2012 my cousin and best friend, Cherie, was diagnosed uterine cancer. We all thought it would be cured with having a hysterectomy. During the operation the Dr's learned the cancer is an aggressive Grade 3 cancer and would require several rounds of radiation and chemotherapy that will take months to complete.

Cherie has the biggest heart and ALWAYS helps others in any way she can. She is the first one to drop everything, come to the rescue, and make everything okay again. She is the type of person that has NEVER asked for anything. She has also been an animal rescuer for over 30 years.

However, now she IS in need of our help. The medical bills are coming in almost every day. Being newly divorced and solely responsible for a mortgage, household bills, and 12 rescued animals is extremely overwhelming.

As if that weren't enough, gas for the trips to Houston, the cost of the hotel room, the parking at the hospital, meals and medicine are in the $1,000 and up range just for a week. That is including the discount "medical rate" the hotels will allow.

This disease is not only taking a toll on her body, but her emotional well being is being pushed to the edge. To see such a vibrant, dedicated, and FIERCELY independent woman filled with so much worry and pain, to the point of making her unable to eat is breaking my heart.

I know if some of the financial stress can be lifted, she will be able to concentrate on her health.

So I am stepping in on her behalf and asking you to please find it your heart to give a donation to help ease her burden.

I humbly thank you from the very bottom of my heart and soul for being so kind and giving.

Patricia (Cherie's cousin, best friend, willing caretaker)
