The family and friends of Sydney Springer James are asking you to become a "trooper" in her Army by raising money to help her battle cancer.

Sydney Springer James, 55, was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer that has traveled into her lymph system. She was diagnosed on December 20, 2010. She had major surgery the first week of January. Her oncologist is very optimistic that she can be cured with the proper treatment.
Sydney has no medical insurance. Her husband, Joe, of 37 years became disabled about seven years ago with a latent form of muscular dystrophy and has not been able to work for the last seven years. Sydney has been the sole provider for her family up to the day she was diagnosed on December 20th.
Sydney is going through a very tough and rigorous chemotherapy which leaves her with many side effects that prevent her from working and it will be months before she can qualify for disability from Social Security. She does not qualify for any other government assistance.
Cancer is a very tough battle, and Sydney is battling for her life. Sydney has always been the doer and giver all her life. Every life she has touched has left a positive memory and impact. She is a loving and caring wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and friend. Sydney still has many things to do and give in this world.
Our goal as family and friends is to give her as much moral and financial support possible so that she can concentrate on her main battle, the Cancer, not medical expenses or the bill collectors.
We hope that anyone who can help will contribute in some way. We know many people are going through tough times. If you can make any kind of donation to help Sydney, it will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to make a financial donation we ask for your prayers for her recovery and ask that you might pass this site and information on to someone who may be able to help with a financial donation and or prayers
Until Cancer touches your life, you have no idea how devastating it can be physically, emotionally and financially. Please become a “trooper” in Sydney’s Army to help her fight the toughest battle she has ever had to fight.
Thank you,
Family and Friends of Sydney James,
Mary and Paul Caldwell, Long time friends
Aubrey Springer, Brother
Kyle James, Son
Haley James, Daughter
June Wilson, Aunt
