#Road2Recovery for Arienne & Susan
Organized by: Road2Recovery
EVENT DATE Aug 31, 2015
Meet Arienne Casebier and her mama, Susan Rishel.
A few months ago, Susan found a small, almond size bump in her breast. . There was no pain or discomfort initially, but afraid to seek medical treatment because of lack of insurance, she waited until April, when she woke up to extreme discomfort (pressure) around her abdomen before she went to the ER. After biopsies of her breast and scans, she was told that she had Stage 4, 18cm IDC breast cancer, inoperable with metastases on liver and t9 of the spine. At that time, they were told that the tumor would crush her spine and irreversibly parayze her if left untreated. She attempted radiation but could not tolerate the treatment, so at this time she is at home with Hospice visiting twice a week with no treatment other than medication to help her tolerate the pain.
Arienne is a chef in downtown Charleston and owns a catering business. She was just named one of Charleston's 50 most progressive chefs in Charlie magazine! Unfortunately, because she is a full time caregiver to her mama, she is unable to work and hasn't been able to for many months nor will she be able to for the forseeable future. She has depleted her personal and business accounts to pay their rent, food, utilities, doctors and medications.
HOW WE CAN HELP:
Kyle and I have just gone through another battle with cancer and we know first hand the financial hardships it causes and leaves in its wake. No one likes to ask for help or feel like they are receiving charity. It's humbling and difficult. #Road2Recovery was established to help those suffering from the debt incurred by this disease so that the patient recieves what they need with one less worry to the family. If you feel led, you can make a donation on line through this site, host a fundraiser of your own, collect your loose change and turn it in, or take the opportunity to teach your children the importance of giving and get them involved. $10 can make a huge difference to someone who is wondering how they will pay for the parking at the hospital or the water bill.
Proverbs 3:27 Whenever you are able, do good for people who need help.
