This fund is to help Judith Boampong with expenses for treatment and living expenses during her battle with stage 3 colorectal cancer.

Judy is a hard working mother of two and grandmother of two. Last year, just before the birth of her second grandchild, Judy felt that something was "not right" with her. She couldn't say just what, but she knew that something was off. Because she had a history of anemia, she thought that maybe the new diet she was on was not fortified with enough iron so she started taking iron supplements. When she started having problems with regular bowel movements, she thought it was the iron pills. But when she couldn't keep food down, she knew there was something else.

After visiting her doctor, she was sent for tests. Then, she got the phone call. She had to get to the hospital right away. She got the call at 8am and was at the hospital by 10. By 11:30 there was a tube down her nose and IV's in her arm and doctors talking about surgery and advance stage cancer, and all kinds of things. By the time it was all said and done, Judy was diagnois with stage 3 cancer of the duodenum (part of the intestine). She spent 30 days in the hospital with 6 days in ICU.Then came chemo. Her insurance has been exasted and she still has more treatment to come.

Please help me to continue with my cancer treatment and provide for my daily expenses.
