I wanted to let you know that one of our own Farmers CSR's, Khrys Baker, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and Amyloidosis on Thursday of last week. She has had cancer 2 previous times so it keeps coming back. Now it is in her liver, kidney and lymph nodes. There is a more aggressive treatment for her however it is in Texas, so we are going to try and raise enough money for her to go there. It is a charitable organization that has agreed to take her but she still will need to pay $1500 when she walks in the door. Which her admit date is June 25th THIS MONTH she will be there for 5 weeks getting treatment. $1500 is just the first of many financial obligations she will have, as she will not be working either. Her condition of the Amyloidosis she has had since her previous treatment. So this will make this treatment more complicated. We have a goal set at $5,000 which doesn’t cover ALL treatment but definitely get her through this one.
If any of you follow Khrys on Facebook (Blue Skies, Art & Design) then you know she has a passion for crafts of all sorts, so we are holding a silent auction fundraiser at my office 9305 N Pennsylvania Ave, next Thursday the 14th, 5:30-8pm. We will have finger food and drinks!
We ask if you can come out and support her during this time and of course donations are welcome. Thank you!
