The family and friends of Claudia Franson are asking for your help to raise funds for her battle against cancer.

In February of 2010 Claudia went to the doctor because she had extreme pain in her ribs. At first the doctors thought it was a pulled muscle, as time went on and the pain continued to get worse, they decided to do an x-ray; it was at this time Claudia was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Like many of the women with lung cancer, Claudia never smoked a day of her life. Since her diagnosis, and despite the Chemotherapy and daily treatments, the cancer has continued to spread through her ribs, spine, and bones. The side effects of treatment have been drastic (including skin ulcers and loss of cognititve function) and have increased the costs of care greatly.

Through it all Claudia has remained strong in her Faith and will to live. She is an amazement to her Husband, 3 children, 2 grandsons, friends, and the many families she has touched in the 33 years of teaching she offered through childcare. Her husband, Scott, is a hardworking department manager at the local grocery store, and although his employment provides them with an income and insurance, it is not nearly enough to cover the mounting medical bills and many things insurance does not cover. The mental, physical, and financial stresses are increadible, which is why we are asking for your help. Anything you are able to give is greatly appreciated; we also ask that you keep Claudia in your prayers.
