September 16th 2013 everything we knew changed...
My 17-year-old sister Kelsey was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer.
Today is September 20th. Our family has spent every moment trying to prepare and educate ourselves on what’s to come. Everything is moving so fast. After several tests on Thursday they determined the cancer is localized to the tumor by her knee and her team of doctors have set her treatment plan.
They need your help covering the costs of her medical expenses. Insurance will not cover everything she needs to give her best fight. The weekly co-pays for her chemo treatment alone are very high. She will spend a lot of time in the hospital. We are trying to raise the funds so my parents can focus on Kelsey, her emotional needs & managing all the doctor appointments. Not spend time worrying how to get the money to pay for her care.
We appreciate any and all amounts you can provide to help her fight against cancer!
All funds collected will go to her costs for care. We will continue to raise funds throughout her fight to ensure she is given every opportunity and resource to fight this cancer full-force. Updates will be posted here and on her Team Kelsey Facebook page.
Thank you sincerely from the Entire Hunnicutt Family!
Today is 12/13/2013
Kelsey had surgery 12/11, she had a total need replacement and about 3 1/2 inches of her femur removed. She's in a great deal of pain but she's up doing her exercises & in good spirits!
Prayers continue as we wait to get the results from the tumor they removed. The chemo didn't shrink it's size but we're praying it killed the cancer!
We are so proud of Kelsey!! Her faith in God & positive attitude throughout this journey is such an inspiration! She is truly an amazing beautiful young woman! We Love You Kelsey!!
