Lung Cancer diagnosis for 39 year old Single Mom. Please help this marathon runner beat the odds.

Our dear friend, Thea Mink, has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. It is inoperable and she is preparing for agressive chemotherapy and radiation. The doctors outlook is not optimistic, but Thea's positive spirit is strong and she is a warrior! Only a couple of months ago, she was running a marathon. This sudden diagnosis has taken her family and friends by surprise.
Thea is a single mother of 3 beautiful teenage daughters. She receives no child support and has always had to work two jobs to keep her financial well-being in order. When discussed with her what her plans are for paying her bills while going through this battle, she said "Well, I have no choice but to keep working. I will lose what little insurance I have (that doesn't even cover the cost of her chemo or radiation treatments!) and I have to pay my rent or we will be homeless." Her daughters are her whole world, and at this time, all Thea wants to be focused on is taking care of them and preparing them for what lies ahead.
This is one of the strongest women we have ever known and we truly believe that, along with her strong faith in the Lord, will have the power to become a survivor of lung cancer. Right now, she is in the hospital and is worried about how to pay her monthly bills so she can provide for her daughters. She is worrying about losing her job because she cannot be at work...which means she will lose her insurance and not have the ability to pay for her treatments and hospital bills. The father of her daughters is unable to provide for them financially because he was in an accident a few years ago and is parapalegic.
This fundraiser is a simple and quick way to make a donation online to benefit the cause. Please, even in these trying times, find it in your heart to give forward and help this amazing, beautiful woman.
