Please help me with your love and support in my fight for life against this rare cancer.

My name is Laura Bruning Densmore. I have been married 8 years and have two beautiful children, Ava(5yrs) and Colton(2yrs). At age 39, I was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic terminal clear cell soft tissue sarcoma and also melanoma. I have been fighting for one year now having 5 rounds of chemotherapy with three different drugs. None of them worked. I have had many surgeries to remove the tumors just to find most of them growing back in a few weeks with multiple others. We used to live in Alabama but have had to relocate to another state with my children to get treatment in a facility that actually knew about this rare cancer. We had to let our house go and put everything in storage. The kids and I moved in with my mom in FL and are currently receiving treatments at Shands at the University of FL. My husband still lives and works in Alabama and visits when he can. This is extremely hard on our family and not too long ago my doctors gave me 12 months to live but I am fighting hard to prove them wrong. Your donations will help with our increasing medical bills and for new treatments. No amount is too small. Please help me fight to stay alive for my family.

Recently, the money raised with this fundraiser is helping me travel to Hospital Angeles in Tijuana, Mexico to receive treatments that are not available yet in the US. These treatments will help prolong my life and could very well save it but it is extremely costly. After 5 days in Mexico I will be going to The Issels Medical Center in Santa Barbara, CA to undergo an intense 3 week treatment program. These places are affilitated with Issels Klinic in Germany and is one of the best cancer centers in the world. However, we certainly could not afford that trip and are still in awe that God is providing for the Mexico/CA trip. I remain strong in my faith that God is always with me, directing my steps and giving me all the provisions needed. The total is $40,000 for all the treatments we are doing presently. Thank you ALL for helping to raise money for us. Without all of you this would not be possible. I am always brought to tears at the amount of love I am being shown from so many. I had no idea...Blessings to all of you and I give my deepest love. Thank you!
