This is Patti Kretschmer's Medical Fund. These funds will be used for Patti's Medical costs. Please show your support!!!

In 2010, Patti Kretschmer found out that she had cancer in her thyroid and the surrounding lymphnodes. She went through two surgeries and two rounds of liquid radiation. During the rounds of liquid radiation, she was not allowed to be around anyone for longer than 30 minutes; this included her daughter, Ashley. Between her surgeries and the radiation, she went on numerous medications. Her doctor had to change her medication numerous times because her hormone levels would not become stable. Finally, late 2010, her hormone levels stablized, and she was able to start her radiation.
After Patti completed her radiation, she had to wait months before they could make sure that it worked. During these few months of waiting, she was laid off from her job, and therefore, lost her medical insurance.
When Patti went to the doctor, she found out that they were not sure that the cancer had not spread to lymphnodes farther down her body. They recommended a PET scan. Because she could not afford the scan, she asked the doctors to let her try and get her levels stablized again on her own. She made many numerous positive changes in her life, and eventually, her efforts, along with her medication, made her levels stable.
Patti is a single mother. She is a caring, generous, beautiful person. She now makes all natural candles and soap, and sells them at the local farmer's market. She has not recieved unemployed financial help until June of 2011. That and the income from her candles and soap, is not even enough to pay for her bills. All of her savings were spent on her medication, that now, she can no longer afford.
Patti Kretschmer is an amazing and strong woman who brings light into the life of anyone she meets. Any help would be greatly appreciated and a wonderful blessing. Please help me bring some light into her life. Thank you
