The family of Karen Mitchell is uniting to raise money to help her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support! Thank you!

At the age of 62, our beloved Karen has been battling a secession of health problems. She was most recently (in June 2012) diagnosed with breast cancer.

Over the past three years, Karen has been suffering from the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia and degenerative disc disease resulting in a loss of wages and group health insurance benefits.

In May 2012, after 3 years of no preventative care, Karen secured a limited benefits plan that enabled her to get the mammogram during which her breast abnormalities were found. Karen was definitively diagnosed in June; and, in July, she had a mastectomy. The hospital bill alone for the (1) day stay was $30,000. In August, Karen will learn the treatment plan for her type and stage of Breast Cancer, with physical therapy to follow.

Prior to the on set of these health problems, for 12+ years Karen served as a licensed insurance agent helping senior citizens, families, and individuals safeguard against the potentially devastating financial liabilities inherent in catastrophic illness. Ironically, despite all of Karen’s efforts to protect other people from ill preparedness, through no fault of her own, she now finds herself without comprehensive or catastrophic health insurance. The cost of the continuing bills associated with Karen’s quest to be and to remain cancer free is overwhelming; and, she is in dire need of your help.

Please help the helper by making a monetary donation to assist Karen through this medical and financial crisis.

We wish to thank you in advance for your prayerful and financial support!
