This is a fundraiser for Patty Garcia to cover medical and living expenses during her illness. Help Patty Beat Cancer!

Patty Garcia was a 25 year old honors student at East Los Angeles College when she was diagnosed this summer with a Stage III malignant thymoma. This is an extremely rare type of tumor that is impacting her lungs and heart. Because the tumor is pressing on her heart Patty needs to endure chemotherapy before surgery can be considered. Our hope is that chemo shrinks the tumor enough so that her tumor can be removed. Patty is unable to work at this time and is uninsured. The good news is that she is currently receiving medical care at LA County-USC Hospital and she is enrolled in a special program that will cover some of her medical bills. However, there are many out of pocket costs. Our goal is to raise $5,000 to help cover Patty’s medical and living expenses during this very difficult time. Any amount you can donate would be very much appreciated.

UPDATE: Thank you so much! Your incredible generousity helped us meet the goal. We have raised the goal to help pay for an expert second opinion and Patty's living expenses.  Today, during her chemo session, Patty was smiling because of your love and support. Thank you from the bottom of her heart!
