I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has been a LONG journey. I have had surgery s, infections, treatments, and chemo. I also had a D &C,and more than likely, have a hysterectomy very soon. I am trying to get stronger. The bills are piling up. I am in DESPERATE need of car repairs, healthy good food, rent, gas in the car, car insurance (it was just cancelled for non-payment), electric, clothing (and also to wash the clothes), and toiletries. Some days are good, and other days I am depressed and worried. I am planning to work as soon as I am better. I appreciate the time, kindness, and generosity of everyone who can help ease some of the stress.
Thank you VERY much,
My name is John Baucom and I am 58 years old. On October 1, 2016 I went to the
emergency room because I was having difficulty reaching for things and I felt "weird".
They performed a MRI and found a tumor in my brain. On October 6, 2016 I was
formerly diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Stage 4 Brain Cancer. I had surgery
immediately to remove as much as the tumor as possible. At that time the prognosis
was 12 to 18 months for survival. Approximately 7 weeks later I began Chemo and
Radiation therapy. That round of treatment ended on Dec, 15, 2016. On March 17,
2017 I had a second surgery as the tumor returned. I was put on a new treatment called
Optune with continuing Chemotherapy. On September 18, 2017 had the tumor return
and surgery was performed and the tumor was removed. As a result my family and I
are in deep financial distress and I am looking for assistance with my day to day
expense. Any assistance you may be able to provide would be much appreciated.
Thank You for your time and attention to this important matter.

I'm making this for my mom Helen who is 69years old and was recently diagnosed with stage 2b breast cancer. We live together for the past 4years. She was a nurse for 40years and now has found herself on the other side. Financially we are barely making it but are getting through day by day. But recently the insurance has informed us they will only cover 80% leaving us responsible for 20% Of each treatment. We will be ok but it will be tight. So that means the extra stuff like head scarfs or extra foods will most likely be the first things to go when electric, Dr bills, and meds will have to come first.
My mother has always helped others and to see her in a spot where she might have to be uncomfortable is extemly hard to watch. I do believe our faith in God and my children will carry is through this bump in the road of life we are traveling for the next few months.
My name is Victoria (Vicki) Thomas. I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2012. After 6 rounds of chemo and a month of radiation I was lucky enough to survive. Sadly this past week I found out that the cancer had returned, this time in the form of a tumor by my spine in my lower back. I will be starting chemo in about 2 weeks.
With the first bout of cancer people did reach out to offer help but all I wanted to do was hide from the world. This time however it will be a different story. I am asking for help because financially, I simply cannot afford to be sick.
If you can help out with transportation for my son to school, groceries, meals for my son, medical bills, anything would be greatly appreciated.
I have also created a page on Facebook that will document my health updates, a blog of sorts, I will probably just ramble but it will keep my mind off the obvious! You will find it at https://www.facebook.com/CancerRoundtwo/ on Facebook.

Thank you so very much,
