The family of Terry are uniting to raise money to help Terry with her Cancer Treatment and medical bills for the past 4 years of Cancer.

Please help Terry, get her next treatment Proton Beam Therapy in IL.
Terry's story: Terry is a 51 yr. old mother of three and Grandmother of three. She has been battling stage IV colorectal cancer for the past four years. She has undergone surgery twice, chemo for 20-1/2 months, radiation twice and cyber knife. Terry was told a few months ago that her chemo has stopped working, and that she should live out the rest of her life the best she can. She went through a few days of depression and one morning woke up and said SHE would decide when the fight is over! So she decided to do her own research and made her own appointments at a large city hospital. A new oncologist gave her some of her hope back. This new oncologist and some other doctors found a way to remove most of the cancer. The only issue are 3 lymph nodes, which are not new (the chemo shrank them to a point where the surgeon could not see them) but they grew back. Terry's cancer is aggressive and these lymph nodes need to be removed as soon as possible to stop the spreading of this disease. She will be having Proton Beam Therapy in Warrenville, IL.

Terry could really use some help on this next treatment. The cost of travel, hotel and food for seven weeks is going to be expensive. Not to mention Terry will have to go to Illinois alone and will not be able to see her family during this time. With the thousands of dollars in medical bills she has accumulated already, and after insurance pays their portion for this procedure, she will be billed approximately another $30,000.00. Terry is a registered nurse and is unable to work due to treatments. She is also a volunteer EMT and still takes calls when she feels well enough. Any donations, even a dollar, is appreciated more than you can know. With everyone's help we can get Terry her treatment and pay some of these medical bills that keep accumulating.

Thank you and God Bless you all!
