This is the Kelly Smith Medical fundraising page. She is uninsured and funds will help her cover expenses.

Kelly is fighting thyroid cancer following a diagnois in September 2011.She also finished her first degree and bought her first home last year. She has no health coverage, but has continued to work throughout her treatments. Wyoming does not have catastrophic medical for cancer patients, and she has been covering most of her costs on her own. All community resources have been contacted, but unless she stops working, she will not qualify for any help.

Kelly is an advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Rock Springs, and the mother of two children, ages 8 and 10. She will have a third throat surgery and radiated chemotherapy for a second time by the end of 2012. Due to her insurance status, she must make a large down payment prior to her next procedure. She has spent all of her savings on her last 2 throat surgeries to remove her thyroid, goiter and cancerous tissue. Due to excessive scarring, she will need to have this surgery to have full motion of her neck and head.

Kelly has managed to keep up with everyday expenses and pre-emptive care on her own in an effort to keep her home and maintain her health, until now. The expenses have become overwhelming.

Any help that family and friends can extend to her at this time would be a blessing to her and her children. She would also like to thank everyone that has supported her emotionally, spiritually, and donated to the first fundraiser. She couldn't makeit through this without all of these wonderful people's support.

Any donation is tax deductable. Any questions or for another method of donation, please contact Kellys sister Laura Ambrose at 307-362-2739.
