HOPE for a 2nd Chance for Sara
Organized by: Ruthie Cassidy
EVENT DATE Sep 30, 2015
My Very Special friend Sara Thompson has had more than her share of "life challenges." She has spent the past 6 stressful years, helping her husband Sam fight his battle with ALS...which he lost 10 months ago. One month later she was diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer. She went through the first intense round of chemo for 3 mos., but her doctors told her to "put her affairs in order." Hell NO to that!
We are raising money for her to be able to go to a cutting-edge cancer clinic in Germany...where many people, in as extreme health crisis as Sara, have come out Cancer Free...and lived many more productive years. But she is up against a relentless "clock!" She has gone through her retirement money, after Sam's unending expenses and the co-pay of $40,000 for her non-effective chemo. The clinic in Germany will cost $25,000 plus airfare for her cousin and her. And any additional money we could raise, will help with living expenses later. She also has rescued and cared for homeless animals her whole life; and currently has 7 at her home.
Her open, giving heart has always been about Helping others--people and animals...Never about herself! We are Hoping to Find More open, giving hearts...Any help you can give her will mean the world to her (literally...) And gratitude beyond measure from her family (human & animal,) and me! And if you do find your heart opening to this wonderful person...Please share her story with your loving friends.
