The daughters of Diane Koch-McBeth are trying to raise the money for her Bilateral Mastectomy and accompanying hospital bills.

Our mother, Diane, was diagnosed with breast cancer three weeks ago. She has to have a bilateral mastectomy on October 3rd. The problem is we just recently got insurance and it won't cover the entire procedure. We have to pay for the surgery up front and the accompanying bills as well. It is just me, my sister and my Mom, we don't have any resources or really any way to get that kind of money. We weren't given any notice about getting the money, it was all so fast but I think that's how cancer works. We are just now getting back on our feet after Mom spent months receiving unemployment after she was laid off. She has to have this surgery, and we have to find a way to pay for it. She is everything to us- she taught us to read and how to cook and drive a car, she told us stories every night with worlds you could never believe... She is the strongest person we know, she is working until the day of her surgery, pushing through the pain and exhaustion. She wants to be back at work as soon as she can, Mom considers her work to be her therapy. Please help us save her; help us give back to her after all the years she has given to us. What wouldn't you do to save your mom? Every donation counts no matter how small.
