This is the Denise Hill Cancer Fighting Fund. The funds raised will be used for Denise's medical costs and related expenses needed.

Denise, 44, was a healthy, athletic hardworking mother of three boys. Denise was diagnosed in the Fall of 2011 with a 6cm astrocytoma brain tumor in the left temporal lobe.

Denise required surgery right away and the surgeons could only safely remove 80% of her tumor because of the delicate location of tumor site. During the surgery Denise developed a blood clot and started hemmoraging. As a result, she had a stroke in the same location in her brain as the tumor site. Denise's tumor, as well as the stroke have left right-side paralysis, speech difficulties, memory loss, etc.

For the last 6 months, Denise has endured physical, occupational, speech therapy as well as chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Denise's condition also caused her to close her small business that she had opened just one year prior and therefore, no more income.

Denise still has complete right hand paralysis and she is right handed (or should I say was). During her treatments she still relies on her wheelchair and walker although her leg and foot still need more therapy. Denise will require many more years of therapy in order for her to have a decent quality of life.

Denise and her husband have exhausted all financial resources to date and the medical bills are piling up. This is forcing Denise to cut her therapy and even some medications and necessary imaging tests that monitor tumor growth.

Denise really needs your help! ANY amount you can give will be put to good use and really appreciated.

You can make donations to Denise using her paypal account.
