Join Ruth's family and friends in her fight against cancer. Funds to cover her medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Four months ago, my mother visited a doctor due to severe pain in her back. On the morning of her only son's wedding, she found out her back was fractured.

Several weeks later, doctors performed additional tests, as her back didn't seem to be healing. They located a mass in her back that was preventing the bone from fusing back together, as well as multiple lesions on her liver.

A biopsy was done and doctors shared with her that her prognosis was not good, giving her six months to a year to live.

Although fortunate in having health insurance, co-pays
alone can quickly add up for the treatment she requires.

Ruth is only 50 years old and led a very healthy life until this news. She is happily married and has two children, 25 and 28.

As many of you may already know, she's been a fighter since the day she was born. She was born with Cerebral Palsy from the waist down and doctors said she'd never walk. Not only did she defy their prediction, she enjoys golfing and bowling and has never let her C.P. prevent her from doing any of the things she loves.

It is crucial that we get her back on her feet again, so that she can fight this diagnosis. As she has always been a very independent person, it's important that she is able to function physically during this emotional struggle.

Any help you can give will certainly ease the financial stress and keep focus on fighting this cancer. Please share this link with anyone who may be willing to help, as every little bit will contribute to her quality of life.
