My friends, I come to you with a plea for help on behalf of someone too humble to ask for themselves.

Our dear friend Amusing Bunni, one sure source of humor in the ongoing battle for our country, is in need of prayers. And lots of them. She’s been diagnosed with liver cancer. Inoperable. Stage Five.

Bunni described her diagnosis in an email to Zilla:

There is no good way to put this, so the cold hard truth is:
I was in hospital for 8 days, after all the tests, biopsies, bone scans, mri, cat scans, ultra sounds, etc. etc.  It’s confirmed I have 5th stage inoperable liver cancer, HCC.  There is NOTHING to be done to treat it.  I have been given 3 to 6 months to live.

This hits me hard.

A little less than a year ago I lost my Mom to cancer, or I should say it was the chemo and radiation that finally wore her body down til it could take no more.

It doesn’t need to be said, but I’ll say it anyway.

Cancer freaking sucks.

Anyone dealing with or acquainted with someone dealing with that dreadful disease understands the terrible toll it takes on a family’s emotions and finances.

Friends, Bunni and her family are in need. To quote Zilla:

Bunni is now (obviously) unable to work and she has mortgage and other bill payments still to worry about and she will need help covering medical and other expenses as well. Here is her PayPal button.

Please, if you can, consider a monetary donation to Bunni’s Medical Fund.

Afterwards, please head over to Amusing Bunni’s Musings to offer some encouragement. She needs to know how much we love her and appreciate the joy she has brought into our lives.

Also, if you’re a blogger or just want to add your name to the list of supporters, be sure drop by Zilla’s place to add your name to the Roll Call.

God bless my Bunni Lass.

    God Bless you Robot! What a wonderful post. You are one of God’s saints to help me out. I am touched and honored by your kindness and generosity. Words can’t express how all the love and caring has uplifted my spirits.

    I’m terribly sorry to read about your dear Mother and her passing. I know she is in heaven, watching over you. In a way I’m glad nothing can be done for me, because, I would refuse the chemo and all the other measures dr.’s foist on patients to make them think they are “doing something” all the while knowing it won’t really help but add a few months of “life” but what kind of life, when the quality of it makes you so sick you can’t even sit up in bed. I am thankful the Lord is working it out in his way for me. All things work out for good for those who love the Lord, so I’ll trust in him.

    Thank you again for your exceptional Robo Love! I will never forget your kindness ,and that of all our blogging friends….it shows what is truly important in life.
    God Bless, Bunni and Kitteh thanks you too.

    Robot, Bunni has lifted our spirits for so long. Now we can lift her spirits.

      I hope so, Opie. Bunni sets a great example of how to find the humorous side of things. That is a valuable lesson, especially to a cynical automaton such as I. Methinks Bunni should hang around a while longer to teach an old ‘bot how to find more positive than negative.

        That’s so nice of you to say, Robot, I always have to try and find the humour. I have more gallows humor now, in fact, In the hospital, I was making wisecracks to the dr.’s and nurses and they were really laughing. I think they liked it that I wasn’t crying all the time like most people they see every day, and they have to tell them bad news.

      God Bless you Opus, you’ll never know how much you and Robot (and all the other wonderful people) have lifted mine. I’m so happy you were the lst person to mention that I should not be shy and go public with my illness. God bless you and your lovely family.
