The family and friends of Laurie Riggs are coming together to help with her battle against cervical and lymph node cancer.

Laurie Riggs has just turned 31. She has an 8 year old daughter. We, as friends and family have just spent the past 10 months going thru radiation, chemo, and internal radiation along with two surgeries. The cancer was missed due to a misread papsmear and she is in stage 4. The cancer started in her cervix, spread to the lower lymph nodes and at this point there were also spots in her lungs that lit up on the PET scan. She went in for a bronch. The nodules came back negative so we were so positive and hopeful that the lungs were cancer free. After going thru the treatment for the cervix and lymphs...we just did our PET scan and now Laurie lungs have new nodules. The cancer continued spreading during treatment. The cancer in the lungs is not able to be radiated due to area (at heart) and a piece behind heart. There is no way to surgically remove them either. So at this point, we are waiting this week to find out when Laurie will begin chemo again. This has been a long and scary road as all of you know. Finiancially, we have struggled thru all of this with Laurie and have helped her as much as possible. She is not able to work. Her immune system thru this has kept her with chronic bronchitus and at 88 pounds. Laurie just needs some extra help, not a lot. Any would be appreciated for prescriptions, rent, and bills. The funds will all be used for cancer related expenses. Please show your support.
