The family of Debbie Samson have united to raise money to help her battle Colon Cancer.

Debbie was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer in August 2010. It had already traveled to her lymph nodes, ovaries, liver, lungs and omentum. She spent a grueling 12 hours in surgery to remove her ovaries and spots on the liver, but they originally diagnosed it as Ovarian Cancer, so they did not do anything to the primary cancer in the colon. Once they determined that it was, in fact, colon cancer, they then told us she would have to undergo additional surgery to remove the colon cancer. She then undertook 6 months of chemotherapy and went through surgery again in March 2011. She now is scheduled to begin another 6 months of chemotherapy to keep this beast at bay. We have spent the last 12 months rejoicing each day we have been given with her.
As many of you might know, there is no cure for colon cancer, it is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths and prognosis for stage 4 is not good. However, we remain hopeful that she will beat the odds, and grateful for each day we are given.

She was laid off from her job when she was diagnosed. She has not been able to find work due to the frequency of treatment needed to fight this. Their insurance doesn't cover everything, especially the high tech scans and tests needed to keep on top of this disease. This battle has depleted their funds and they already owe over $10,000 in out-of-pocket costs. It costs them $400-500 per month to travel to the University of Colorado Cancer Center for treatments, medications, etc. Our dad, Carl, works full time, but all the medical expenses, coupled with mom's drop in income has drained them both mentally and financially.

Debbie is in the battle of her life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from her. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it!

Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

God Bless you.
