Bette's story begins with Hodgkin ’s disease at age 19; she was given a 50/50 chance of survival. The approach at the time was to use cobalt radiation to eliminate the lymphoma cancer. Bette survived her cancer treatment and has lived cancer free for more than 40 years. Sadly, the radiation treatments of the past began taking their toll on Bette's body, eventually weakening her heart and lungs. The deterioration developed into what would become a three-year battle with multiple surgeries and 10’s of thousands of dollars of medical bills. Bette has had two heart valve replacements and surgery on her lungs numerous times to remove fluid. While her body is recovering, hospital bills have devastated the Kuss family finances. Donations will be used to pay medical expenses not covered by insurance.
