Creating a way to help Lucy, her husband and two children meet this medical financial burden, will you help us too?

Most of you know Lucy as a wonderful spirited women. She needs some help right now. Recently, Lucy was diagnosed with endometrial cancer stage IA. The cancer has grown less than halfway into the myometrium. Often surgery alone eliminates all of the cancer. With follow up observation Lucy can remain cancer free. This surgery will involve removing the uterus.  This is a costly procedure and Lucy does not have health insurance. Anything we can provide will help. $7,500.00 represents the cost of the procedure.

Surgery is scheduled for October 2 at 7:15 am.

In a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy an incision is made with a laparoscope, a tiny tube with a very small video camera on the end. Laparoscopy is often used when a large abdominal incision is not necessary. Usually three small incisions are made in the abdomen near the navel. Other tubes are inserted through the incisions and the uterus is removed in sections through the laparoscope or through the vagina. Absorbable stitches are used inside the pelvis. Since the incisions are smaller, recovery time is usually quicker and less painful.

All Funds will be paid directly to the Hospital!
