The family & friends of Tami Voss are helping to raise money to cover medical expenses while she fights cervical cancer

The beginning of a new year is supposed to be a fresh start. We put the past behind us and embark on new adventures. Tami welcomed 2012 with the same enthusiasm as the rest of the world, believing it would be the best year ever. At 27 years old she has a job working as a veterinary technician at Westbury Animal Hospital where she touches the lives of animals and their owners every day.

However, in early January 2012, Tami was diagnosed with Stage 1b1 Squamous Cell Carcinoma Cervical Cancer. She now begins the New Year not planning a vacation to an exotic destination or making a resolution to work out more, but fighting for her life.

While she does have insurance, it will not cover all of her healthcare expenses. Less than two weeks after being diagnosed, the costs are already mounting. Tami's life is now scheduled around doctors' appointments and invasive tests. She is preparing for surgery, the entire extent of which will be unknown until she is on the operating table, and at least 4 weeks away from work.

Right now, all of her energy needs to be focused on getting healthy. Stress over paying her bills and covering the enormous healthcare costs she is facing will only hinder her recovery. Every donation will go to helping her cover the costs related to cancer treatment.


Please join us in helping Tami beat cancer!
