Anne Marie Thompson aka Honey (affectionately called her grandaughter) has been battling cancer for almost two years. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be going to help Ann Marie to pay medical bills have accumulated during her fight against cancer.

In July of 2008 at the age of 51, Ann Marie was diagnosed with stage four cervical cancer that was inoperable due to the size of the tumor. Ann Marie has bravely and without complaint gone through several rounds of chemotherapy, internal/external radiation as well as a surgery in early 2009 to remove part of her intestines that was damaged by her treatments. Through most of this battle she continued to work and place her job and family before herself. And just when it seemed as if everything she had went through wasn't in vain, her cancer returned with a vengence. It completely took over her spleen with at least 12 tumors in various sizes as well as a tumor in her lung and stomach. Most recently she had to endure twenty-two succesive radiation treatments to combat the tumor in her stomach which had grown to such a size as to completely block input of food into her stomach and caused bleeding of the stomach lining as well. After a month stay in the hospital this past April while recieving those treatments she is home with her family but her battle is far from over. Despite everything that “Honey” has gone through, she continues to be a inspiration to everyone who knows her. Honey embraces each day with her bright outlook and sassy attitude. We thank Honey for her strong courage and hope this fundraiser will help to ease her thoughts through this journey and help to cover her medical expenses that have accumulated during her fight with cancer.
