The family and friends of Karen Lemister are uniting to raise money to help Karen conquer cancer. Please show your support!

My sister Karen was diagnosed with cervical cancer in August of 2011. She immediately had a radical hysterectomy. Her lymph nodes came back clear, along with all the other testing so she did not have to endure chemo and radiation. She did suffer from lymphedema after her surgery. She had to go to physical therapy and now wears medical issued tights everyday (in the central Florida heat!) to fight off the symptoms associated with that.
Fast forward to August of 2012 and she is once again facing a battle. She has a cancerous tumor that is starting to invade her bladder. She started chemo and external radiation on September 4, 2012. On October 16 she will go to Moffitt Cancer Center for 3 days for internal radiation.
Karen works for Polk County School Board. She works with struggling students in a local elementary school. She is a very sweet and kind-hearted person. All the kids love her! She is a very positive person and you might not know her struggles if you were to see her! She has private insurance through the school board but struggles to keep up with the high co-pay and deductible. She is trying to keep working because she can't afford to go on medical leave.
Please help Karen fight the fight and not worry about her mounting medical bills!!! Together we can do this!
Susan Collier and family
