Mary's friends want to raise $60K to help with Mary's medical, surgical, chemotherapeutic and personal expenses for ovarian cancer. TY!! :)

Mary, a special ed teacher of 25 years, was recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Her surgery 3 wks ago took 8 hrs, and she's starting chemotherapy this week. She cannot be around anyone who is ill, and so can't work again for awhile. She'll still get a small paycheck, and she hopes to go back to teaching these children she loves so dearly, in the fall.
But she's facing a mountain of medical bills. Her insurance pays all but 20%....but that percentage of treatment/surgery/chemo will be monumental. And she'll be risking losing everything she's worked for. I can't sit by idly and watch that happen to such a wonderful person and friend.

If you'd like to read more about Mary, go to the following URL ( and see the blog entitled 'Memoir of a Melody' which is about 'Maryann' aka Mary. She is the most generous and kind person I have ever known and that's been 40+ years of knowing her. Our children were born 2 wks apart, and we've remained close. She attends walk-a-thons for charities, gives freely of her time, helps with church fund-raisers, and even takes in homeless people.
Now Mary needs help. The bills are piling up. But I believe in the goodness of people, and i believe in miracles!!
Please, if you can give, if your burden is light and your yoke easy, (regardless of the amount), your gift will be greatly appreciated. Paypal will soon be accepted, or you can send checks, money orders or even get-well cards!

ps: Prayers, good wishes, positive energy, candle-warmth and cyber-hugs are also accepted!
