Friends of Michelle Tirado are uniting to raise money to help her battle against bone, lung, and breast cancer. Please show your support!

Michelle Tirado is a 43 year old woman and was diagnosed with Breast Cancer back in 2007 and had her Lymph Nodes removed from her right arm. She has been in remission for 5 years. May, 2012 she went to the E.R. because she was coughing up blood with severe migraines. They listened to her lungs and said her lungs sounded clear. She was given "Imitrex" for her migraines and sent home. She went to the E.R. 2 more times because of the same thing and they did the exact same. Then July, 2012 she was having severe pains in her rib and thought she had bruised a rib. They did an X-Ray and discovered 1 spot on her lung they and decided to keep her overnight to do a Cat Scan for a closer look. The Cat Scan revealed 2 spots on her lung that appeared tumorous. They then did a Pet Scan and discovered 10, (TEN) tumors throughout her body:
Now, in September, 2012 she has been diagnosed with:
Stage 4: Lung, Bone and Breast Cancer
She has been told that they just want to treat her for quality of life. But Michelle is a fighter and wants to beat this terrible disease.
Since being diagnosed she has felt new areas which she is very concerned about.
She has become a member of The American Cancer Society and other groups to help her with her battle against these cancers.
I know this sounds biased, but people like Michelle do not deserve to be going through such a tragic event in her life.
Michelle has started her Radiation Therapy and wants to fight this, but is having trouble with the insurance companies to pay for some of the tests and therapies. She needs another Pet Scan, but the insurance company will not pay for this because she is considered terminal. Without this test the doctors do not know where to start for the Radiation Therapy because it will be like shooting in the dark. So as you can see this not an easy process by any means.
Michelle needs your help to pay for some of these tests and to help with living expenses. Her $34.00 for Food Stamps does absolutely nothing and Social Security barely pays the rent. She cannot work due to her frequency of doctor visits, lack of mobility and therapies she is enduring.
Michelle is truly a special person and needs your help.
Thank you in advance for your help and prayers.
