My 37 year old sister was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her appendix 2 years ago. She has undergone 2 crucial surgeries. The first one was 12 hrs long, they removed a 170 lb tumor. Along with that her reproductive organs. She doesn't have any children. :-( Her second surgery was Dec 2012 and that surgery was 17 hours, removing her stomach, spleen and part of her colon. She stayed in the hospital for 6 months. She was released home July 1,2013. Unfortunately, a day after she was released, her husband had an unexpected heart attack, and died, July 2, 2013.
My sister lost everything she had. Her job and her main support. my retired father is taking care of her in Ohio where she resides. My mother is in Texas working and sending funds to both my sister and father. My sister has one more surgery left next month.
My goal is to raise money to bring her back home with mom and dad in Texas. She has been through so much and I want her to start a new life back home... Cancer Free!
