YOU HELPED MAKE A MIRACLE HAPPEN!

We willed it to happen from the beginning, and your support and prayers truly filled Jude's spirit. It's so remarkable that in less than 6 months, Jude has gone from stage 3 to remission. She still has to take her meds and go through stem cell therapy, but where she is today is truly a miracle. Thanks to all of you who have helped us achieve our goal and beyond.

More Info

As many of us know, kickin' cancer's ass takes a few things:

  • great treatment 
  • great attitude
  • great nutrition

We have the power to help Jude with all three!  Right now, Jude is unemployed (and is not receiving any unemployment benefits), and was denied Medicaid because of her previous employment history. This means that while she is now covered by Obamacare, she is facing thousands of dollars in medical expenses out of her own pocket. 

From the $500 one-way ambulatory expenses to the hospital to her $7500 insurance deductible, plus pharmaceutical expenses (she has to take 16 pills a day), she is easily going to pay more than $14,000 out of pocket.  That doesn't include any of her personal expenses and needs.  

So instead of buying her cards, flowers, or books... please consider making a donation to help cover the cost of her medication and other medical costs that come up along the way.  I know this would take a tremendous burden off her shoulders.  

Please consider making a donation (we provided suggested levels, but any amount is appreciated!) as it will not only be life-changing, but life-saving.

SPECIAL VIDEO MESSAGE FROM JUDE

Hey everyone, this is Lee Ann Kim, Jude's longtime friend who started the Fundly page. My heart is SO FULL that 158 of you responded to our call for support to help our dear friend kick cancer in the ass. Together we hit our goal, and sent Jude the strong message of love and compassion. She is on her healing journey thanks to YOU!

The campaign ends today, so I asked Jude to send a video message to you. In perfect Jude fashion, she put on her lips for this one. :-) Please watch at the link below. HUGS TO EACH OF YOU.

Update #1

BIG, HUGE THANKS... BUT WHO ARE YOU?

Seriously, who the heck are all of you beautiful people who have responded to this stranger's call for help? While I don't know most of you, I am so inspired by the outpouring of support for our dear JUDE ABELLA,, who is in the fight of her life. We have created a new COMMUNITY OF HEALING for this sista!

In just 4 days, not only have we reached our campaign's goal, we have more than DOUBLED it. Jude is seriously speechless, and I too am taken aback by the outpouring of love, support, and genuine kindness. I am reminded that despite all the negativity and evil in this world... LOVE WINS.

Originally, I hoped we could simply take care of the next few months of Jude's cancer medication while she's going through chemo, and also buy her a juice machine. Thank God you have all helped us provide her with that! WHO KNEW THAT MORE THAN 90 OF YOU would rally and create a wider security net for Jude?!

For those who have been through late stage cancer or a serious disease know that UNEXPECTED SHIT HAPPENS such as her current staph infection which is keeping her hospitalized and postponing her chemo therapy. Doctors also want to try out a new, experimental chemo drug on her, which won't be cheap either.

So all the extra support will provide our girl the financial and mental security she needs to not only get better, but also protect her when curve balls come her way.

SO WHO ARE YOU? You are a life-changer, a life-saver, and simply wonderful.

I am proud to be in this fight with you!

Sending you a big hug from San Diego,

Lee Ann Kim
