Family & friends of Laurie are uniting together to help offset/assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden.

As most of you know Laurie Sears was diagnosed with ameloblastoma of her left jaw. This is a rare disease in which Laurie has a 1 1/2 pound tumor of her lower left jaw.

She has found a specialist in Miami, Florida who will be doing her 1st surgery (removing her jaw) on Sept 28, 2011. Approximately, one month later (after her swelling goes down) she will have a second surgery where the doctors are going to remove one or two of her ribs to make her a new jaw. Her mouth will be wired shut for several months & she will be on a liquid diet.

Laurie is a Flight Attendant and has been taken out of work with no paid time off, no vacation days etc. Being a sole provider for only herself, she has no one to lean on. Unfortunately, her living expenses are increasing. She is having problems and delays with her disability insurance which has not even started. In order for her medical insurance to be covered, she has to pay out of pocket $450 that she doen't have.

On Laurie's behalf, we are reaching out to ask for help towards covering her household expenses and medical insurance expense. Laurie does NOT know that we her (family & friends) are involved in any fundraising. We would like to surprise her & alleviate some of her financial stress.

The Family would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their support, contributions, thoughts & prayers. God Bless for showing your love & support for Laurie's cause. Please help us help her!
