My dear friend Kathy is battling stage 4 breast, lung and liver cancer. She has already beat breast cancer once before.

The friends and family of Kathy Akey are uniting to help them during this difficult time. After battling cancer once before Kathy and Jason have been trying to get their lives back on track. Kathy just 3 weeks ago was hired for a new job where there would finally be some stability for them financially. Over the last several months Kathy has gone to the community clinic because she did not feel well and was coughing and wheezing a lot of getting short of breath often. Due to the fact she had no medical insurance the doctor kept giving her inhalers saying she had asthma(which she never had before) they did not even do bloodwork. Several weeks ago her breathing got so bad she went to the emergency room. First they said she had pneumonia and soon would be told she has stage 4 breast, lung and liver cancer that is heading into her bones. My beautiful friend has not complained, been angry, felt sorry for herself(which she is entitled to)
She still always has a smile on her face. Talk about an inspirational woman and also her fiance Jason. They are the most positive people I know even when bad things are happening to them. Kathy is trying to have her chemo scheduled during her lunch breaks because they cant afford for her to miss work. This is heartbreaking to me. I want to see my friend be able to devout the next several months to taking care of herself and not have to worry that they will be evicted or not be able to eat because they cant buy food. She of course also has medication to buy and many other things related to her cancer. I would also love to be able to send her and her fiance away even if just for one night to be able to go relax and have some fun before the chemo makes her too ill to enjoy anything. She had her first chemo treatment this past friday and will go in every friday. There is not much I can do and it is a helpless feeling. What the need the most is some help with finances during this most difficult time. Her boyfriend Jason needs to be able to take care of her as well and not be working 80 plus hours a week when Kathy can't go to work. There are so many things that go along with a cancer diagnosis that you don't even realize until you are in it. This is a loving and giving couple. They have little in the area of finances but they have so very much to give and they give freely of all they have. I dont know where else to turn for help other then trying to raise money for them. I will keep you updated and will add more photos as treatment progresses. Thank you for taking the time to read about my beautiful friend......
