Supportive Care for Laura

More Info

After more than 10 years of the same chemotherapy treatment, Laura's neuro-oncologist has advised her it is past time to stop this treatment.  

Chemotherapy should not be taken for extended periods of time because, in turn, it can cause certain types of cancers. While we have been aware of this, there wasn't another viable treatment option for her. She had very bad reactions to other medications and a risk of trying something new and different brought with it a risk of life. Now, she is transitioning to another type of chemotherapy treatment. Her doctors are currently fighting to have this approved through insurance. In the meantime, the need to both medicinally and naturally increase her quality of life is a high priority. Some of the medications are not covered by insurance. 

It is our desire to alleviate her burden of additionally costs so that she can do what she needs to do to heal from the treatment without stress.  A typical treatment for her puts her in bed for at least a week with pretty severe complications.

As you probably know, my family helps her in many ways. Our full-time privilege is being witness to her inspired fight. We'd like to invite you to partner with us all as we help her adapt, adjust and overcome. 

As a side: she is in desperate need of a new car. Please let me know if you know of anyone selling a used Camry.
