Linda's Battle Against Cancer

Organized by: Sara Morrill

THE STORY:

Help my Aunt Linda battle cancer!

Linda is an amazing woman who has dedicated most of her life to animal care, having worked as a veterinary technician for over seventeen years and owned her own petsitting service for eleven. She's rescued and fostered an amazing array of critters, including one memorable turtle whose shell she patched with bits of surfboard, and currently keeps company with four dogs and Sandi, her best friend of too many years to count.

In September of 2014 she began experiencing worrying symptoms, which went misdiagnosed for five months until February of 2015, when her doctors gave her the awful verdict: Stage 3b colo-rectal cancer. Since the diagnosis, the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes where it wreaks ever more havoc. Her treatment involves chemotherapy and radiation, for which she travels five days a week over ninety miles to the nearest available treatment center, as well as seven different types of prescription medicine.

Of course, all of this has put her out of work, and those medical bills are skyrocketing. Her family is helping out to the best of their abilities, but between co-pays, prescriptions, travel costs, and the cost of treatment itself, it's a lot to manage.

I'm reaching out to ask for your help. Linda's one of the strongest, funniest women I know, and she's given so much - it's time for us to give something back. Every single donation, every single dollar, is one less thing that she'll have to worry about while she's fighting this battle.
