It is a very humbling thing to have to ask for help. I’ve always liked to think of myself as the helper, not the person needing help! But as I was getting chemo and talking to another patient about the financial devastation that goes along with a cancer diagnosis, she told me about the givetaxfree website. I was determined not to have to use it to ask for help. But sometimes we need to set aside our pride, so here goes…

The good news is I am a two-time cancer survivor. The bad news is I’ve had to dig a financial hole to pay for medical bills and living expenses while I was sick. In 2009, I fought stage 3 breast cancer. Then in June of 2022, I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I’ve spent the past seven months in chemo and radiation treatment while continuing to work full-time to support my family. The next step is surgery to remove a section of my colon. My husband also works full-time, and we don’t live an extravagant lifestyle. We’ve done our best to put money aside over the years, but it’s been really hard to get caught up financially after living through the hell of cancer twice. I would love to be able to put all my focus into healing and gratitude without the worry and stress of bills piling up. Any amount of help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reading my story and considering helping our family. If you can’t help financially, prayers are always appreciated!
