It is an unfortunate truth that medical costs these days are so high, that to continue receiving treatment and/or continuing to afford daily life, many people have to start a personal fundraiser. Regrettably, Teresa got to that point pretty fast.

As of January 2020, Amanda is still paying Teresa’s medical bills, which have been sent to Collections; not for lack of payments, but because apparently that’s what is done once someone dies.¬† There’s a collection agency *just* for the deceased. She can accept help by having bills paid directly, but not receiving the funds herself **for now**. Please contact Amanda if this is something you’d like to try to work out.

Teresa’s PayPal, GoogleWallet, YouCaring/GoFund Me accounts are all closed. Please do not try to send money through them.


If you shop on Amazon, here is a way you can help all patients currently fighting leiomyosarcoma:

Please consider using http://smile.amazon.com when you shop.

When asked, designate Leiomyosarcoma Direct Research Foundation or the National Leiomyosarcoma Foundation as your charity so that Amazon will direct a portion of their sales for research of this deadly, aggressive, and rare cancer. It costs you nothing but a moment of time to make the designation! This is such a rare disease and research is currently our only hope! And research will bring us to a cure!
