The family of Mary Jane James- Bishop are uniting to raise money to help with her battle with Cancer.

Seven years ago a young woman went to the doctor for a colonoscopy and left with life changing news. At the age of 32, Mary was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. For the last 7 years Mary has battled this ugly, nasty disease that has tried to get the best of her on every occassion. After successfully overcoming the Colon Cancer, Cancer reared it's ugly face again, but in the form of Lung Cancer, even though she has never smoked a day in her life.The Cancer has slowly but surely made it's way through her body, attacking and moving on to other organs as well. With every step of this exhausting battle, Mary has fought not only for herself but for her family. She has fought with Prayer, Medicine, Determination and Strength. All the while Mary, who is a Mother of a beautiful 18 year old daughter and devoted wife to her husband. The baby sister out of 7 children, when I say Mary has fought I mean it in every sense of the word. She never let this horrible situation get the best of her. She has held down 2 jobs that work hand in hand with the community all the while being a mother and wife. This past month Mary recieved a horrible set back, the cancer has moved to her bones. There are a couple reasons we are asking for donations for Mary, one being the over all medical expenses and secondly her travel expenses. Every two weeks she travels approximately 600 miles round trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma, the nearest Cancer Center of America, for her treatments. Every donation no matter how big or small is greatly appreciated.Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your donation if you are able to help Mary continue in her fight against Cancer.
