Cancer Benefit (for my mother and uncle)

I don't know if this is the right forum or not but I wanted to exercise all available means to try to make this a success. Over the past 7-9 years I have witnessed the kindness many have displayed when a family member was having some sort of difficulty or another. While many of us don't go outside the family to deal with problems, sometimes problems come along that require additional help. With that being said.............

There is going to be a benefit Soup Supper, Silent Auction, and Dance to assist my mother, Carolyn Cummins, and my Uncle, Tom Cutsinger with their mounting medical expenses.

When: November 7, 2009
Where: New London Missouri Lions Club
Time: Meal: 4 PM - 7 PM
Silent Auction: 4 PM - 7:30 PM
Dance: 9 PM - 12 Midnight

Adult: $10
3 and younger: Free
4 - 12: $5
Couples: $15

Donations (cash or otherwise) are accepted and greatly appreciated!

I appreciate anyones prayers and or generosity! I will post what I know about their situations. Family members are currently soliciting donations from many of the local businesses for the silent auction. It is a very rural area so at this point we are unsure of what will be available for auction.

The benefit is on behalf of both and any profit will be divided and applied to their mounting medical bills.

Thank you in advance to everyone for taking the time to review this post!

My mothers battle............

My mother recently ended her treatments for adenocarinoma cancer of the lungs, which was discovered just before Halloween last year. She was diagnosed with cancer while undergoing treatment for a mild heart attack. The cancer appeared to be in early stages and the doctors explained that her odds of beating it were higher the sooner she began treatments. They then informed me that they could not start treatment until they were able to stablize her heart.

Efforts to stabize her blood pressure and heart seemed to be successful and last year on Halloween I took my mom home from the hospital after she received a stint in a vein that they believed had been the cause of the attacks. Later that evening she had another attack so rushed her back to the hospital where she underwent a second procedure for another stint and further testing. At this point they believed the cause to be a combination of needing the second stint and a reaction to all the different medications they had prescribed.

All of this delayed the possibility of treating the lung cancer until December of last year. She had surgery to remove a portion of one of her lungs and a lymphnode and began chemotherapy shortly thereafter. She finished up treatments I believe in February of this year and returned to work. She was terminated from her job in July of this year. Last month, after experiencing serve abdominal pain, she was rushed to the emergency room where they removed her gall bladder.

As you can imagine, her insurance was not sufficient to cover a significant portion of the medical bills for so many procedures in such a short period of time.

My Uncles battle........

My Uncle Tom is currently undergoing his second round of treatment for small cell lymphocytic lymphoma with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. They thought that they had his cancer under control; however, it has recently returned and he is back in treatment.

Unfortunately, I have very little background knowledge regarding my uncles condition.

If someone is interested in making a donation they are in the process of setting up a bank acct to receive the money or donations can be made directly to the hospital itself:

On behalf of my mother:

Hannibal Clinic Operations, LLC
P.O. Box 311
Hannibal, MO 63401

Acct #: 8740.0

At the moment I do not have any account information for my uncle. I will update this thread if/when I receive any info.

Thank you again for any prayers and/or support!

It's pretty small. I know some of my family members are hopeful that this will be a success but even if the entire county showed up it wouldn't be much. That is why I decided to post on here an hopefully get the word out to more people! The Internet can be very helpful in situations like this.

I know my mother owes quite a bit and she told me that with my uncle undergoing a second round that he owes more!

Thanks for the well wishes!

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.

I'll see what I can do. I have a personal paypal account but since this is a benefit I was told that all the money had to go to an account specifically set up for it. A couple of my family members were working on making sure all the banking information was/is legal. I'll check with them today to determine the process of getting one set up. That is a great idea thanks!

Since they live in such a rural area and both are still getting medical testing and/or treatments, I suspect there will be several benefits over the next year to help if they can get them organized.

I spoke to the family this morning and they are in the process of setting up an account at a local bank. I got the impression it will be set up within the next couple of days after which a paypal account will be established that will be linked to that account. For anyone interested in making a donation via paypal I will post the link to the account as soon as it is established (hopefully by Tues or Wed).

Thanks to the mods for keeping this thread at the top! I appreciate it!
