The clients, friends and family of Beth Miller are raising money to pay for her cancer surgery, treatment and drug expenses. Please help.

Dear Friends, Family and anyone who’ll listen,

My name is Brit Miller. My wife, Beth, and I have lived near Waleska, Ga. for 30+ years. Beth is a midwife and has delivered nearly 700 babies in twenty years. We are now 67 and 49 years old respectively and in need of your help.

Last August Beth was diagnosed with uterine cancer. The night before (literally) her scheduled surgery at Northside Hospital her insurance Co. (“Golden Rule” Ins., believe it?) called to say they wouldn’t cover the expenses. We flew to Costa Rica where she had a complete hysterectomy. We paid out of pocket; we could afford it. We came home where she was pronounced “cancer free” for the first time. In May of this year she was diagnosed with colon cancer, and we went again to Northside. This time the insurance covered her surgery, but her deductible and co-pay were about 25K. We were nearly tapped. In June we went to Houston (Burzynski Institute) for antineoplaston/chemo therapy. It is her best bet for survival. Estimated cost is 75K+. We had less than half. Medicine costs are estimated at 6.7K monthly for the first year, additionally. After giving BRI the last of our savings, they graciously allow us to pay at $4500/month until…

Friends and clients have formed a charitable fund raising foundation in Georgia. It is registered with the State and IRS as a charity. If you would like to contribute to our cause, please donate here or go to www.bethmillercancerfoundation.wordpress.com and select “donate”.

Two upcoming events you might like to participate in: There will be a benefit dinner/dance at Unity North Atlanta Church, Sandy Plains Road, Marietta, Ga on Saturday, November 3, 2012; from 6:30 pm until 10:00 pm. Plates are $50 with reservation or $65 at the door. We have room for 140 folks, so please come. Make your reservation at 770-312-3915 or on line. Additionally, presently, two local attorneys will prepare Wills, Powers of Attorney and Living Wills with all proceeds going to the cause. Pricing is great at $100 for the first document and $50 for each subsequent document per family. A family of four could all get Wills, financial and medical Powers of Attorney and Living wills for $750, the cost of a single Will at many Law Offices, and take a tax deduction for the whole shebang. Call 770-312-3915 for details.

Beth and I drove to Houston on June 12th and returned on the 24th. The ten days we spent at the Burzynski Research Institute were a blessing. Beth is now “cancer free”, but we’ve heard this before, and now she’s on an antineoplaston/chemo therapy regimen to insure the cancer doesn’t pop up elsewhere. Costs to date are about 85K with monthly drug charges of 6.7k. Of course, after the first of the year we’ll have the deductible and co-pays to deal with again. Please join our cause.

Thanks, your friend in need,

Brit Miller
