The Story

Most of you know our dear friend Sheila, a dear and sweet lady, recently was diagnosed with cancer. She has had some treatments to shrink the tumors but needs help raising funds for her insurance payment so she can have insurance before her operation date.
No amount is too small. And all help is appreciated. Remember that even sharing this link is a huge help.

Please note. @dogstoyevsky Lexie and her mom have greaciously allowed Sheils to use their Paypal. All funds raised for Sheila will be sent to her.

Thank you

Friends, Sheila has finished her radiation treatments and has a few weeks off where she can enjoy her family. Soon she will be having iodine treatments ans will have to be isolated. She will spend the time in a hotel room when she is not at the hospital.
Please send good wishes her way as it will be quite difficult for her during that time.

Shelia's last surgery went well, and she recently had a CT scan so the Dr.s could see where they were in the removal of the tumor (because it was so large it had to be done over multiple surgeries). All looked good and they felt the next procedure would be the removal of a rib that was cancerous. But that was cancelled as they felt that it might cause more harm then good at that point. So now Sheila is waiting to hear back from the Drs to see what the next step for her will be.
Sheila is extremely grateful to everyone who has helped her through this tough time. Whether you donated, RT'd/shared the post, or gave her words of comfort. She thanks you all. And loves you all!

Everyone, wanted to give you all a quick update.
Sheila has had two surgeries so far to remove her tumor. She has a third one scheduled May 29, this Thursday, to try and get the rest of the tumor. It was so large that they couldn't remove it in one surgery. It will take three!
After this next surgery she will have a CAT scan to see if they got it all. Then on to another doctor about her treatment possiblilties.
Sheila has been overwhelmed with everyone's generosity and support, not only with the help on this fund raiser but in emotional support as well.
You all mean the world to her, you are part of her family and she loves you all!
Thank you everyone!
