This is the Mary Alexander Hystectomy Fund. The funds will be used for Tom's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Please help assist with medical expenses for Mary, who is currently facing a hysterectomy to remove uterine fibroid tumors.

Since 1998, Mary has had several procedures to remove fibroid tumors. When she was first diagnosed, she was given an injection in an attempt to shrink the tumors. This procedure failed and a myomectomy was ordered. Some time later, after an examination, the tumors had grown back. The doctor then ordered laparoscopy. She assumed that this procedure would finally resolve the tumor matter.

Again, as before, after a routine office examination, it was discovered that the fibroids had not only returned but were bigger than before. She was next ordered to have a UAE procedure, which would cut off the blood supply to the tumors, shrink them, and render them useless. This was in 2007.

Now, the tumors have grown back. Unfortunately, Mary lost her job and is no longer insured. She was advised in the past that to get rid of the tumors, she would have to have a hysterectomy.

Mary is afraid of the effects of the hysterectomy but feels that she has no choice. She has had all known procedures in an attempt to get rid of the fibroids, even natural methods that have failed.

The tumors are affecting Mary's menstrual cycle, causing extreme pain and discomfort. Over the counter and prescription medications have not been able to relieve this pain. At times, the pain is so severe that she has had to take off from work in the past and remain in bed for extended periods of time.

The money donated will be used to pay for the medical procedure to alleviate Mary's monthly debilitating pain.

Thank you for supporting Mary in her time of need and please keep Mary in your prayers.
