This fundraiser is for my lifelong friend Helen who has Osteo sarcoma. She like many people does not have medical insurance and needs assistance to pay for the growing pile of bills that are associated with cancer treatment.

Helen has given me the pleasure of being my dear friend for more than 33 years.  She is a thankless loving woman who never dreamed she would be faced with cancer. She gives of herself to all of us and has helped to raise not just my children but several of her own nieces and nephews. She and her husband live a simple life and work hard. They never planned for the hardships that cancer has brought into their lives. Now they are faced with not only the diagnosis of cancer and the chemotherapy that is needed to save her life, but with the complications that have come with it.  Because the Osteo sarcoma is in Helen's face she has had to have all of her teeth extracted to avoid futher complications and infections while she undergoes chemotherapy. The cost of replacing her teeth is just an added expense that they will have to shoulder. My desire is to help them cover the expenses that come with all of these issues. Costs that are not covered include doctors fees, medications, chemotherapy treatments and dental bills. Thank you so much for sharing in my cause and for helping me show her that it is all...For The Love of Helen.
