The family and friends of Stacy Stewart are uniting to raise money to help by for medical expenses. All donations are greatly appreciated.

Stacy Stewart is a 42 year old WF who has worked for a busy Cancer Clinic in Reno,Nv for 10 years. In June of 2010 She developed a "softball" sized swelling in her left mid flank area, she was advised to see a surgeon for biopsy which was performed under general anesthesia, The material showed microabscesses and necrotic fatty tissue caused by a spider that bite her, No Cancer was found, she immediatly was taken to surgery to have this growing abcess removed a surgery that should have taken maybe atleast an hour took twice as long do to complications. The abcess had spread rapidly across her back almost connected to her spinal cord which could have paralized her. Her surgeon who is head of surgery at Renown did an amazing job, removing the abcess which was about the size of a large cantalope. It was unfortunate what trauma Stacy had to go through after surgery. Post operatively she required constant drainage care for over one and a half months, She had a wound vac on 24hours a day and went to the wound clinic three time a week until the wound was healed. Finally in September of 2010 her wound had closed and she is able to work full time again. Her medical bills are extensive even after her insurance coverage amounting to over 8000.00 dollars. With living expensives and trying to make ends meet she is unable to meet these expenses without have to declare bankrupcy. Please give what you can to this compaionate caregiver who has given so much to patients over the last 20 years.
