I am raising funds to support a dear friend of mine to pay for her TheraSphere treatment medication and equipment.

After battling Leukemia for 2 years at the age of 26 and completing Chemotherapy and Radiation, now 29 year old mother of a 10 year old son has been diagnosed with Stage II Primary Liver Cancer. In December of this year she began another round of Radiation treatment and by January she was also taking Chemotherapy. By March she was taken off both forms of treatment because her Doctor discovered that her body was no longer responding. Her options were to be made comfortable until they could find an alternative, or no treatment at all.

In May she was informed of a clinical trial called TheraSphere which is an innovative radiation therapy used to treat liver cancer. She applied for the trial immediately. At the end of May she was informed that she was accepted into the trial. She is scheduled to start June 17, 2011. She is in need of funds not for the procedure itself but for medications and a liver monitor for the duration of the trial which is 6 months. She does not have the money to cover these necessary medications and cannot begin the trail without them.
We need to get the funds to her asap! Please help her to raise just $1,500. Even of you don't know are doing something amazing for another human being.

Although she wishes to remain private, I can tell you that this is a beautiful person with love, light, and laughter and someone very dear to my heart. After going through my own battle with cancer and completing treatment just months ago, I can tell you that the financial burden should be the least of one's worries in a time such as this.
Thank you,
