The family and friends of Heather Shannon are raising money to help with medical expenses as she continues with her sarcoma (cancer) fight.

Heather was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the muscles and connective tissue in 2005. Since then, she had the original tumor in her leg removed and shortly after over 20 tumors popped up in her lung, which required her to be on research medications because the cancer is chemo resistant. In March on 2011, the cancer moved to her brain, requiring her to have brain surgery and months of radiation. Recently she found out that the remaining tumors on her brain (there are 3) are swelling and active. She may be facing another brain surgery and possibly more radiation. She has to travel 3 hours away for all medical treatments to the University of Michigan. She lives at home with her husband and three boys who are ages 15, 9, and 7.
