The family and friends of Carmen Stray are trying to raise money to help ease her financial burden while she battles breast cancer.

Carmen was diagnosed with breast cancer in August, 2012. Despite her husband’s full-time job and Carmen’s part-time work, she does not have health insurance. The oldest of their four children is fighting a lifelong battle with chronic kidney disease that has required three kidney transplants to date. The cost of his medical care has made health insurance too expensive for their family, even through their employers, so Carmen has gone without it.

Carmen has never asked for help from anyone. She always finds a way to make things "work," regardless of the odds. She has continually served as the caretaker and "rock" for her family, friends, and loved ones. Despite not having a lot, Carmen manages to give to anyone who needs it and will go out of her way to make sure others are okay. This is going to be a long and expensive battle for her and her family, and we, her friends, would like to do what we can in an effort to ease her financial burden while she fights the battle of her life.

All money raised will go toward medical expenses, as well as day-to-day living costs that can no longer be covered while she’s away from work. No amount is too small, and all donations are GREATLY appreciated! THANK YOU for your kindness and generosity!
