Please Help Brolan's Grandma!

My sister-in-law, Brolan's mother, received some awful news about her mom. Her mother was just diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has already spread to her liver and to her lungs. If you remember back before Brolan was born, I posted about Judy and her famous tattoo that helped Brolan receive his name.



She has been given 2 years at best to live, treatment options for her are limited because the aortic valve of her heart is damaged so her heart may not withstand traditional treatments. Some alternate treatments look promising but unfortunately insurance does not cover those costs.

They have set up a donations blog for anyone who can donate some money to help her receive these treatments. If you can please go leave a donation, any amount will help!

HELP JUDY FIGHT CANCER



Brolan will thank you!

Oh my goodness... that just knocked the wind out of me!

That's what my friend Steph passed away with - colon cancer that spread to her liver. But they gave her 18 months - she DOUBLED that! And now, they are coming with advances EVERY DAY to these things!!!!

Pooba,

That is terrible news. My brother in law is dying of liver cancer. It is very sad to see someone you love have to suffer and also know that they won't be around much longer.

I hope that everything goes well for her. She is in for a huge fight.

Oh no! I HATE that we have no cure for cancer yet. It scares me so bad! Thanks for putting up the link to donate though. I hope we can all raise a BUTTLOAD for her. Then at least it takes away a tiny fraction of the stress that comes along so nicely with health problems...the BILL. I love you and am praying for you and the fam!
