Karen's Latest News
Saturday, February 04, 2012
Karen went to Orlando yesterday for the scope and biopsy and the news is not good. The tumor is inoperable-it is too close to the artery. The doctors have not definitively said it is cancer and won't until the biopsy comes back but things are not looking good. They are waiting to see if there is anything that can be done.
Today our community held a fish fry/benenfit to help them with the expenses. Even if they get the crappy insurance to cover some of this, there is a lot of expenses they are going to have to pay.
There was a huge turnout. There was a 50/50 raffle that raised nearly $200, they sold chances on 2 walking sticks that were donated and I don't know how much that raised. They held a silent auction on a lot of things that different people donated and they were tallying that when we left. They also put out a jar and many just made a cash donation to help them.
We are all praying that there is something that can be done and don't want them to have to worry about how they are going to pay for what they need to do.
Please continue to keep Karen & Tommy in your prayers. It is in God's hands now but we can ask him to please help her thru this whatever the outcome.
