The Story

Jessie Hall is one of a kind.  She's always there for you and your furry ones but now she needs our help.  She was diagnosed on November 4th, 2014 at the age of 48 years young with a very rare form of cancer of the appendix called Appendiceal Adenocarcinoma.  Unfortunately, not only are the treatments crippling, but the hospital bills are crippling as well. We are trying to help raise money for the specialists that can treat this very rare cancer as well as pay for the hospital bills that have been accruing since May of 2014. At this point we are looking at an excess of $100,000.00. We are hoping to ease her mind of financial stress while she takes on this battle of a lifetime. This is a terminal illness that has put her to the brink of bankruptcy as well as concern for her home and business taking care of families treasured pets at Critter Sitters LTD. One last surgery for the chemo port this week and then 6 months of chemo treatment will follow.   Please everyone, find in your heart a way to help her in any little way you can.  Please share on your homepage, religious organization etc. to spread the word.  May God bless you all and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

You can check back here for updates, events and encouragement for Jessie, so keep in touch!

Sincerly,
Krissy and Carolyne

Hi guys. Back from MD Anderson in Houston and it went well. My main concern was that my doctors here were doing the right thing. And they are. Yay. So it turns out that not only is my tyoe of appendix cancer really rare but I'm the rarest ( in a good way). 1000 people a year get diagnosed with my cancer. Of those 1000 people, 95% of them have had the cancer spread. I am in the 5%.... They have not detected any spreading as of yet!!! THAT IS RARE. I guess this is a nasty cancer but they really don't have stats for survivors at all. Because so rare to find someone that has not had it spread yet. It turns out I will now become a lab rat for MD Anderson. All my treatments here will be followed by them in houston. I still have to go to doctor every week. I still have to have chemo til August and I still have to take 6 chemo pills a day but it is to make sure this thing is stopped dead in its tracks. So let's keep our fingers crossed and hope the cancer gets killed. It still is scary because they just don't know what they are dealing with. So I'll do what they say and hopefully my life will get back to normal one of these. Once again, I want to thank all of you so much for EVERYTHING!! And want to make sure that u come to my party at Mcgonigles on April 25th. I really think it's gonna be a lot of fun but please please please don't feel like u need to donate. I just want everyone there. Everyone has been so kind and as of today my world is looking a lot brighter...... Thanks to all of you!!! Thank you!!! Also , what did the snail say when he was riding on the back of a turtle? Weeeeee!!!
have a great day everyone
