This is a fund to help Verna fight cervical cancer,please help if you can,the funds are for travel and medical expenses,thank you

I received the results of my pathology report on june 15th and was devastated,i really dont remember much of the conversation,all i heard was i was positive for cancer ,the rest was just kind of a blur.I knew i had been having problems for a year or so,but my regular doctor told me i was probably just going through menopause,so i had no real concerns.I had a pap smear and it had come back negative but my GYN doctor told me she wish to do a biopsy ,at which time she also wanted me to have an ultra sound done .I still at this time had no real concerns,i wasnt having any pain at the time so i thought everything was fine.when the results came back from the ultra sound she,my GYN doctor told me she had some concerns,but would not tell me at this point what the problem was except that she thought i had some pre cancer cells built up in my cervix and she wanted to do a complete d and c instead of the biopsy.thats when a few days later the pathology report came back with the malignant adenocarcinoma-endometrioid type cancer.I was and still am frighten from the second i heard the diagnosis .then to find out that we have 2 cancer centers here in a near by city,but no gyn oncologist surgeons.the nearest one to me is 500 miles round trip to New Orleans.Touro hospital.I live on a small income each month and I cannot afford all these trips back and forth and all the treatments and medications i need to be on. My only family I have left is my sister and my aunt,to which neither can afford to help me,as they both are on fixed incomes also.The surgery i need consist of a complete radical hysterectomy and removal of surrounding lymphoids,at which time she will also be able to see what stage im in and if its attached its self to any other organs.Ive never had surgery in my life,but I have to do this to live and i want that more than anything,theres still so many things i wish to see and do,so please if you can, do help with prayers or money,i need both,thank you so much and may God bless you.
