Help Mary fight cancer to stay alive for her newborn daughter

Mary gave birth to her first child on June 12 2014 a miracle daughter named Molly weighing in at 5 pounds 3 ounces. In Mary/s second trimester she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia a rare blood cancer. It was presumed that treating this cancer would claim her life or her child's, or kill both. Chemotherapy can be given in the second trimester of pregnancy but side-effects include severe loose motions, infection and bleeding. Doctors said it was a high-risk situation in which the child could have abort at anytime and in some situations, the mother too could have lost her life. It was heartwarming to see that Mary and her child sailed through two sessions of chemotherapy without any harm.
Now Mary's condition has worsened, after giving birth she lost a lot of blood and almost bled to death. She has health insurance, but unfortunately it covers very little of the medical costs that are being incurred. Please lend Mary a helping hand to fight this cancer and stay alive to be able to watch her daughter grow up.
We thank you all who took the time to read our story and feel our pain please spread the word and may god bless you.
