THE STORY:

For years, Addams lived with severe back pain.
No doctor diagnosed the cause. They looked at her back and spine and saw nothing wrong.

Finally, Addams saw a specialist who ordered an abdominal ultrasound. 
On November 26, 2014, the specialist called Addams to tell her that the ultrasound showed a "significant mass".

The mass was identified as advanced liver cancer. 
She was told on May 18, 2015.

She had been living with symptoms for years. 
Her prognosis was poor. 

She would live for 2–3 months without treatment.
With treatment, she might live 6 months to 1 year.

In her treatment the entire Liver was flooded with Chemo in One Treatment.
These are very powerful chemicals. 

At Addams' stage of disease, 0% of patients survive without treatment.
Up to 50% survive the treatment. Addams chose treatment.

She survived the treatment, and it was surprisingly successful!
After a full year, she is still alive. 

The doctors say that the cancer is gone (maybe).
All her money is gone, too.

Now we need $8000.00
to pay Addams' Rent for one year.

Addams was not expected to live, but she did. 
Please, help us to help her.
