Family and friends are coming together to help Rebecca destroy Marla the tumor and beat Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Hi Everyone, This spring Rebecca and I went on a fabulous two week European vacation. Unbeknownst to me, she had a lump growing on the base of her neck around her collar bone. There was no way that my kid was sick because we ran all over the place during that trip. When we got back, she decided that it was time to change jobs and went to the doctor to see what was happening with the lump. After a series of tests and a surgery to remove the biggest lymph node, she was diagnosed on June 18, 2012 with Stage 3a Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She is a trooper though. We have 6 months of chemotherapy every other Friday and possibly radiation in 2013. She had a port placed in her chest and I get the pleasure of having "custody of Rebecca" on treatment weekends as we figure out what is going on with the side effects. She is focused on working through all of this. She writes software and her work has been really supportive throughout everything. She has absolutely terrific medical insurance but there are co pays and deductibles that are adding up very quickly. She has been really resourceful on obtaining her oral mouthwash for free from the pharmaceutical company and I stock up on medications from the Dollar Tree. She has had mutliple CT Scans, a bone marrow biopsy,a surgery to remove a lymph node and port placement. The best thing about all of this disease that she can be cured but her medical bills are starting to come in on top of the monthly cost of COBRA. I have noticed that she is becoming very stressed out worrying about the debt that is adding up and having enough money to pay for it all. There is a set of $2000 that she is going to pay in the middle of September.  She wants to pay for it on her own, but I know it's going to be too much. We are going to get through this and she is going to be healthy and happy. I have noticed that she is becoming very stressed out worrying about the debt that is adding up and having enough money to pay for it all.  She needs to focus on being 28 and taking on each chemo treatment as they come. So please help my baby get through cancer. Every little bit counts. Thank you for taking the time to read about her and please pass this link on to others as well.  Sincerely, Judy, Mother to most wonderful kid in the world.
