Sigh. I guess I have to tell you sometime. It's difficult. I've been putting it off, until I can talk about it, and until we know more, and until...it's just time to tell it:
After finishing up her chemotherapy, my sister's CAT scan revealed several new tumors. They have declared them "inoperable" and given her the choice to continue with chemotherapy, if she wishes. She will see the specialist in St. Louis next week, in hopes that they have a miracle, or at least, a better solution, up their sleeves. She IS, by the way, opting to continue with chemotherapy.
In the meantime, her illness has been financially devastating. One expense alone, a wound pump she had to wear after her surgery, cost her $784 every 2 weeks, after insurance. She wore it for 3 months.
So, close friends are throwing a benefit, to raise a few bucks for Teri and her family, to ease the financial load, and help them get back on their feet.
It will be at Radmakers, in Tolono, IL on April 20; there will be food, music, an auction, a 50/50, and more.
There's a website: The Teri Pittman Benefit, with buttons to allow you to leave her a message, or donate a buck to the cause, or an item for the auction. As of this writing, it was still in the works, but should be running fully, in another day or two.
Please, help spread the word, and c'mon out on the 2oth to support the family.
If you can't make it, prayers are good too. I'll keep you posted!
