Darla Weiss is battling cancer right now and needs your help. Her cancer has reached stage 3 and she just recently started chemo-therapy. With any luck this will clear up her cancer but the financial stress is too much right now. Please Help.

Darla is a wonderful mother and a very caring friend. Her smile lights up the room. For a few months Darla had been complaining of pain in her side, she put it off as nothing, went about her daily life, working and taking care of her kids. Soon, it became apparent that the pain in her side was not going away, and it was not going to let her ignore it any longer. Darla went into the hospital in a terrible amount of pain and when the doctors did ultrasounds they found a mass. The mass was located between her colon and her stomach. They scheduled an exploratory surgery to find out what the mass was right away. Surgery day came and Darla went under the knife, the doctors were planning on doing laroscopic surgery (there would only be a few very tiny incisions). When Darla woke up she realized that they cut much more than that. The doctors decided that the mass had to come out and the made an incision from under Darlas rib cage down to just below her belly button. The nurses were reluctant to answer her questions, and she knew why... It was cancer. So the planning of chemo-therapy and hospital stays was started. Darla just got her first dose of chemo on June 29th, she is currently still in the hospital.

Meanwhile, at home, Darlas bills have started piling up and with 3 children to look after it has become very stressful for her and her family. Not to mention the massive amount of medical bills, and the many many perscriptions she must take, all of which have added to the debt. Any amount of help is much appreciated and will go to a great cause. No one plans for things like this, but when they happen we rely on our friends and family... and sometimes even kind strangers to help us keep going. Please, find it in your heart to try and help in any way you can. Thank you.
