Cancer survivor organizing fundraiser for recently diagnosed family friend

Cumberland Times-News
CUMBERLAND — For Christmas this year, Rachael Sensabaugh got a clean cancer scan and an engagement ring.

“That
was the best Christmas I could have ever asked for,” said Sensabaugh,
21, whose four-year fight with bone cancer — and health insurance
companies — has inspired local residents to donate thousands of dollars
to help.

With the worst, God willing, behind her, Sensabaugh is
urging the community to wrap its arms around another young cancer
patient, her best friend’s sister.



Sensabaugh
knows what the family is facing. She was a senior at Allegany High
School when she was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. Last
year, her family fought to get insurance companies to pay for
experimental treatments, which doctors later determined wouldn’t help.

“My
family’s already been through this,” said Sensabaugh, who is best
friends with Kayla’s sister, 21-year-old Kristen Simpson. The women’s
mothers also went to school together.

“It’s really scary to be
at the beginning and not know what to expect,” Sensabaugh said. “It’s
hard enough to deal with treatment, but having to worry whether you
have the money to finish the treatments, that’s the worst feeling in
the world.”

Area residents donated almost $6,000 over the summer to help Sensabaugh.

“So many people were so gracious to me,” said Sensabaugh, who hopes Spiker will receive similar support.



***I erased parts of it about my friend cause it's against her privacy rights, but I was kinda excited that everyone is sharing in my exciting news. :)

My FH's mother, who I was very close with, recently pasted away from cancer in late summer. I'm very upset she can't be there on our big day. Anyways i just wanted to let you know I'm so very happy for you and it made me tear up that you had such an amazing turn out. Stay strong and Congrats with both!
