I am trying to raise money to help Rhonda Swartz fight her battle with stage 3 colon cancer. Please help by supporting her too!

Rhonda is a 37 year old mother of 2 beautiful baby twin girls. She has a very deep passion about horses and always has since childhood. She is a very hardworking girl, and even though she is very ill was trying to keep working to keep her job and because of finances. Rhonda is too weak to work now, and has to go on family medical leave act.

In August of 2011 Rhonda was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer, and it has now spread to her lymph nodes. Rhonda has to have chemo 2 times a day, 5 days a week and radiation 5 days a week. They are hoping the radiation can shrink her mass so she can have surgery. They could not even do a colonoscopy because her mass was so big.. She also has a spot on her lungs that can back inconclusive. Some of her medication (like her chemo meds) is NOT covered by her insurance which we all know is very expensive. Her one med that is not covered is $4000 dollars. The financial situation is a big worry, especially when she has 2 little girls to care for and herself.

Rhonda is very weak and ill right now because of such intense chemo being done on her, but even through all of this she is keeping her chin up and is in good spirits. She is the type of girl who never asks for help, but now she is open to taking all of the help that is given to her. She is a fighter and a very strong willed person. She has a heart of gold, and a passion for life. Now, she needs our help. All donations go to Rhonda for her medical needs. Her traveling expenses, her medical expenses and any other unexpected costs that come her way.

I am from a group called and we help families in need that have life threatening illnesses. You can check out our webpage to see what we are about. I just want you to know that I am truly authentic in what I am doing.. When it comes to cancer, I will fight for anyone that has to battle it. I have lost several women in my family due to this horrible disease, including my 10 year old little sister. I will fight for Rhonda also. Rhonda means a lot to me, and I want to help her in any way that I can.. My name is Lisa and I have been a friend of this family for over 20+ years. I can't thank people enough for helping. I can't stress enough to people how much the families need it. Every penny counts! So please open your heart, and help this deserving mother out. If there are ANY questions please contact me at:

Thanks so much!
