The family and friends of Rachel Yancy are uniting to raise money to help during her battle with liver cancer. Your support is appreciated.

In February of 2012, Rachel Yancy was diagnosed with liver cancer. The scan showed one large tumor and 2 small tumors. At the time, the doctors couldn't suggest surgery due to the placement and the size of the tumors. Also, chemotherapy didn't look very promising at the time. Rachel decided to change her dietary intake and include alternative and natural methods of building her immune system so that it would be better prepared for any future treatments that her doctors could offer. Rachel has recently had another scan and they found one more tumor. They are now including a chemotherapy into her treatment. And when that begins to work, we are probably facing surgical removal of those tumors once they have been reduced and she is no longer in danger of a problematic surgery (the location/size of the tumor). Rachel has been without work since January and will soon be completely with no income. Rachel is not married and still has her regular living expenses (such as mortgage--she is trying to sell or rent her home now, but no renter/buyer just yet, grocery and the like) as well as any medications that her insurance will not cover and the alternative treatments that insurance does not cover. We want to see Rachel SURVIVE! and kick this cancer. We believe it to be possible and live every day as if it is so! While she is fighting to win this battle, she still needs to maintain an existance and this is where you come in. Rachel, my mother, is a beautiful woman inside and out and she is very giving and full of love. She is also very humbled by the outpouring of support she has received already. If you can at all help her during this time of need, it would be greatly appreciated by her and her family. We wish that we were in a position to completely take care of her needs and not need to rely on others, but this isn't the case. We thank you in advance and appreciate your kindness. Thank you and be blessed. If you would prefer to mail a check, you can send those to PO Box 882 Rainsville, AL 35986. Rachel enjoys receiving correspondence and if you would like to send her a card, please do!
