Family and Friends of Mary Little want to help her "SURVIVE" Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma! Please help with a donation if you can!

Diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma in 2009, husband loses job in 2010 at the age of 61 and after 35 plus years employment with an engineering firm and unable to get employment for nine months, caused them to use all their retirement just to keep their insurance ongoing, pay living expenses, pay medical expenses for doctors and medicines during husbands unemployment. Life for Mary and her husband now is not the retirement they had dreamed of, instead it is weekly doctor visits and treatments for Mary, with her husband having to work extra hours just so he can take her to treatments and doctor appointments (about an hour drive away) and keep his new job (which pays about half of what he made working in his former job). Mary finds fighting cancer harder now that expensive chemo treatments have begun and are ongoing having just finished her sixteenth weekly treatment. Mary's faith in God and prayers of family and friends is what keeps her going even when her doctors tell her that her cancer is "treatable but not curable." Mary's faith believes that miracles still happen today and the possiblility always exists for God's healing touch or a cure to be found for non-hodgkins lymphoma, so at her age (62 now and 60 when diagnosed) there is still hope for her to see her three granddaughters grow-up. Mary keeps smiling as she greets people and shares her faith whenever the opportunity presents itself because she believes "With God nothing is impossible!" Your donation can help Mary keep her treatments ongoing until God heals her, a cure is found for her cancer, be a witness to others of her faith, or survive and see her granddaughters grow-up.
