The family of Meredith Hampton is raising money to help with her medical expenses and bills.

Hello everyone,

Many of you know that Meredith is back in the hospital and her tumor has been diagnosed as terminal. My hope is that we can help her out by raising some money to assist with medical expenses, co-pays, medications, groceries, and household bills. She is currently unable to work and any government subsidies she receives is just enough to cover her rent. My goal is to raise $2,500.00 to help offset this.

This is her fourth year of living with cancer. In January of 2009 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She spent the better part of the year receiving weekly Chemo treatments and radiation. She then had a hysterectomy and finally a lumpectomy in December of ‘09.

In June of 2010 she fainted. She was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with an unclassifiable sarcoma that had exploded; she was bleeding internally. This sarcoma is rare and composed of four different soft tissues types. The sarcoma has since returned twice despite radical chemo and radiation treatments. Each time it returns, she bleeds internally and has to receive blood transfusions and plasma.

My hope is that by raising this money, we will be able to alleviate some stress caused by financial burden. I have been able to help with groceries and medications, but I cannot afford to pay the remainder of her bills. I ask that you please help us out by donating if you can. You can also share this story with others who maybe interested in helping out.

I will keep everyone posted on Meredith’s status.
