The family and friends of Unmi Porter are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against liver cancer. Please show your support!

My wife and friend for the past 23yrs was diagnosed with liver cancer in February of this year 2012. She had been suffering for sometime previous with lower back pain causing a miss-diagnosis of the cancer. After going through an operation which the surgeon almost didn’t perform due to the amount of cancer found outside of her liver she is recovering put with an extreme amount of pain. Her oncologist has told us that she has no more than a 20% survival rate at 5yrs if the cancer has not already returned if this is the case she will have less than a year.
My wife is of Korean descent and family has been a huge part of her life. We were not blessed with our own children but she took my kids from a previous marriage and treated them with the love of a natural mother. This ability for caring pored over into her position as retail sales manager for the local Salvation Army retail store. On several occasions she went over the top to insure that even if a family couldn’t afford to buy what they needed that they received the help to better their lives.
With the rising medical bills and now the cost of her funeral weighing greatly upon our families shoulders we have decided to reach out for the help we need to help cover all of the addtional cost not covered. Please help if you can.
