The Wanda Stockman Facial Cancer Fund is to ask for your support to offset major expenses for cancer treatment not covered by insurance.

My sister, Wanda Stockman, has been battling Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma since 2003. After years of chemo, this seems to be under control now.

In September 2010 she was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the face. This very aggressive cancer required 12 surgeries and 66 radiation treatments. The lastest radical surgery was at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center. It was a very invasive surgery leaving her with deformity on one side of her face and mouth. She had medical insurance, but many expenses were not paid, leaving her with bills of $10,000 for housing in San Francisco, airline flights to and from Casper, WY, her home, pre-surgery dental work and medications.

Wanda will return to UCSF after Christmas this year for reconstructive surgery which will require another 10 days in the hospital as long as there are no complications. She will probably be in a wheelchair or walker as this surgery will involve a huge skin graft from her thigh.

Living on Social Security is not a big income. I hate to see her worry about the mounting bills. Thank you for all your donations, loving concern and prayers for this courageous lady.
