For the Benefit of Loryn English fighting cancer since 1997 please support her in her fight by helping to cover medical expenses! Give Hope!

Loryn was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997 and underwent a mastectomy and chemotherapy for 6 months. She took the drug Tamoxifen for 5 years to block the hormones that fed her cancer. She relocated to Ohio with her husband and children where her husband had family. In 2003 Loryn had a check-up which showed tumors on her spine. The breast cancer had spread to her bones. Her Dr. started giving her Aredia which blocked the hormones again but Loryn showed signs of a bad side-effect which was necritis of the jawbone(killing the jawbone). She had to stop the Aredia and the Dr. did not follow up with the progression of the tumors. When Loryn started having horrible arm and back pains she went back to the Oncologist and insisted on having tests done. The cancer had spread to all of the bones from the hip to the neck and tumors in the arm had caused a fracture giving her unbelievable pain. During this time in 2010 and 2011 Loryn also had Back Surgery with 4 screws. Loryns treatment as you might think has put an unbelievable strain on her family and a horrific financial strain. She needs help with the ongoing costs that Insurance doesn't cover. She can hardly pay for the house payment and monthly costs of living. 1997 - 2012 is a long time to exist with her illness and she still has tons of love for her children and 2 young grand-children. Loryn needs to know there are people who care and give her hope for a better life without unbearable pain.
