THE STORY:

Imagine having cancer... Imagine having cancer at 12 years old... Now, 30 years later, imagine being told you have breast cancer, then having a double mastectomy...now imagine being told your breast cancer is in your lungs and you also have lung cancer. Now imagine this all happening to one person ... and that one person is Amy Beal.

Why we need the money: We’re raising money to fund expenses so Amy can go to the Breast Cancer Center at MD Anderson, an integrated patient care facility. The expenses will cover: travel from Cincinnati to Houston, a week-long consultation , diagnostic testing and pathology procedures, ongoing treatment - None of which is covered by her insurance provider!

About Amy: Amy has been married to Tom for 23 years. They have two boys: Braden and Jared and they live in Cincinnati, Ohio. Amy works as a elementary school counselor in Campbell County, Kentucky.

Cancer 1

At 12 years old, Amy was diagnosed with osteogeneic sarcoma and had to have her left leg amputated, followed by a year of chemotherapy. She was able to finish 8th grade with her class and went on to high school . During her freshmen and sophomore years, the bone cancer metastasized to her lungs four times. Each time requiring surgery. Amy faced each set back with optimism and determination. She went onto complete college, met her husband Tom, got married and had two children.

Cancer 2

At 42, thirty years after her first diagnosis, Amy found a lump in her right breast during a routine self exam. The lump was found to be stage two breast cancer. She had cancer again. Having reached her lifetime limit of chemotherapy, she is no longer eligible for some types of treatments. She opted for a double mastectomy and two reconstructive surgeries followed.

There's more...Cancer 3

Now at 45, a tumor was found in her lung and it was diagnosed as lung cancer. But, the kicker is: the breast cancer was also found in her lung at the same time. Now we need an integrated treatment plan and that means a really expensive trip to MD Anderson.

All proceeds will go directly to an account specifically set aside to medical costs and the ongoing therapies which she will need.
