This fundraiser is for help with my medical expenses that I cannot get a handle on.

I am a 46 year old mother of 2 and grandma of 1.
In 12/2009 I was hit with a ton of bricks when I was diagnosed with Follicular Lymphoma Stage 4. PET scans showed the cancer had spread to my stomach, small intestine, bone marrow, and lymph nodes.

Last 2 years I went through testing, chemo, and 2 bone marrows. One of the chemo’s I was on was brought over from Europe. I was the first to use in my doctor’s office. This chemo you do not loss your hair. I was hospitalized in June/2010 for 1 week due to complications from the chemotherapy. White cell dropped below 1. May 2012 I was finishing my last maintained and got Pneumonia which meant I was out of work longer than I expected. When I returned back to work I was told my position was no longer available.

My Insurance does not cover all of the medical expenses. At the moment we are in the unfortunate position of having to decide to pay co-payments and what medical bills we can pay. My household bills such as mortgage and utilities are suffering.

I am in remission now hoping to stay for a VERY LONG TIME. I do have a surgery coming up in August 2012. Doctors have told me the type of cancer I have will come back. When it does I will be ready to fight again!
Thank you for everyone’s support.
God Bless,
Carol Wright
