More Info

Those of you who have the honor of knowing Kathy Young know she is one the kindest, most supportive and positive people you can meet. She is very generous of her time and the love she has for her family. 

Not only is she an amazing woman, but she is a survivor of breast cancer, mother of two daughters and grandmother of 4 granddaughters.   After losing her husband of 33 years in 2009 to multiple myeloma, Kathy fought to find happiness with her family and friends support and strength. In 2011 Kathy was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  She underwent a lumpectomy to remove the cancer followed by many months of chemotherapy and weeks of radiation. Kathy fought the brave fight and beat breast cancer.  Sadly, once again Kathy and her family have been blindsided with another hurdle and horrific diagnosis.  In February of this year Kathy had a lump on her jaw and a surgical procedure was necessary to remove the lump.  The results showed that the lump was a stage 2 cancerous tumor.  The tumor was removed, however to ensure that any cancer cells are completely gone she will need to undergo 6 weeks of radiation therapy every day in addition to many tests and procedures to prepare her for radiation.  The cost of all of the surgeries, tests and treatments will cost her over $10,000 due to it not be fully covered by her insurance.  Kathy continues to stay positive through this journey, but the additional stress of the cost of medical bills continues to be a constant worry.  

We are close friends of her daughter and are trying to help relieve some of her growing stress associated with her medical bills.  Whatever money is raised through this account will be given directly to Kathy to help pay her ever growing medical bills and her existing medical debt from her past procedures and the staggering costs of her upcoming treatments.  Please feel free to give whatever you can to help Kathy get through this obstacle, every little bit helps and truly is a blessing. Money should be the last thing on her mind during this time. Thank you in advance for helping Kathy and her family through this difficult time.  Most importantly please keep the Young family in your prayers.
