we are trying to raise money to help with medical needs not covered by insurance 4 Judy's battle against lymphoma. Please show your support

In may 2010 I was diagnosed with stage 4 non- hodgkins lymphoma with bone marrow involvement. I went through several surgeries. then went through 5 months of chemo then I was to sick for my next treatment. My blood counts were very low.
I tried to return to work but after just 4 weeks I developed shingles on my face and could not work any more.The pain still will not go away.
Then in March I was weak and fell and broke my right hip. I was in the hospital for 10 days and had 12 transfusions before they would let me go home.
Then I started chemo treatments again in may 2011. In august they did another pet scan and there was significent changes so they sent me to the Mayo clinic. There they put me through several procedures and could not find any active cancer.
I went back to having my chemo then again in December my pet scan was worse so at the Mayo clinic they did 4 surgeries in 6 weeks and the last one kept me in the hospital for 3 days. I was so sick and weak that I could hardly get out of bed most days
.All tests came back negative for cancer. They say it is underlying but undetectable at this time.I am now doing chemo once every 8 weeks as a maintainence dose. I will have another pet scan in June and hoping it will look better
As for now all this has ran up medical bills that we can not keep up with so I am asking for your help. Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you can help thank you and may God bless you.
