The family and friends of Adrienne Curtis are uniting to raise money to help her battle against cancer. Please show your support!

Adrienne, at a young age of 23 (now 25) and with little to no health insurance has been battling Renal cancer over the last two and a half years and has recently been diagnosed with acute kidney failure.

Adrienne has two kids, Leila who is 6 years old and Helo who is 1 year old. She hopes one day to be an art therapist for people with cancer, and teach them how to cope and work through tough times by expressing their feelings through art work. She worked very hard everyday of her life trying to provide for her children, until one day she could not work anymore.

Shortly after Adrienne was officially diagnosed with acute kidney failure, she was put on a kidney transplant list. To get a transplant will cost her $30,000. Adrienne has asked government help, hospital help, but no one has responded to her. Adrienne has underwent major chemo and cyber knife treatments for the past 2 1/2 years, lost her hair and dealt with not having hair for a long time, but that didn't stop her. Adrienne recently has been going downhill since her right kidney has been failing. Adrienne has a hard time getting out of bed and taking care of her children but still manages to find the strength to keep getting up.

Adrienne plans to make it as long as she can for her kids, so she can experience their journeys. State health insurance only covers so much, before she has to pay some of the bills herself and with limited income she spends it on her home so that she has a home.

In the past two years her cancer has spread through out her body. We don't know what the total expenses will be - but we felt we had to get something started to alleviate the stress on Adrienne and her kids so that they can focus all of their energy and strength on winning this battle!

The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses and to help with daily living expenses.

Please keep Adrienne and her kids in your prayers at this time! Adrienne and her kids need all your support and prayers to help them stay strong through this trial.
