If nothing else do a random act of kindness to someone with Karen in your mind and heart.

In May of this year, after several days of discomfort, Karen visited the Urgent Care facility in Seneca SC. After several procedures and visits, we were told there was a mass on her pancreas. After several more procedures it was found to be malignant and large enough to be a serious problem, At that time it wa thought to be next to a major artery also. She endured 4 very harsh chemo treatments that took a toll on her body and at times her spirit. By this time we had contacted the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville re: the whipple surgery that whe would have to undergo to survive. Mayo was chosen because of thier experience with this surgery and the overall quality of the facility and staff. She will undergo surgery the 31st of August and after recovery face 5 weeks of radiation and possibly more chemo. She will do the radiation at Mayo or possibly locally depending on the Doctors recommendations. This has been a very rough 3 months for Karen, but her spirit and attitude is very good now. She is already planning next years garden. and is walking daily to see if Vince (our son) adn I are taking care of her chickens as we should.
We appreciate any help..
Money, prayers, or just good wishes.
And for Karen's sake and yours
be kind to yourselves/your family/and the earth.
