KNOXVILLE (WATE) - There are new efforts to save the life of Sarah Davis, 27, of Knoxville.

The young woman was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago, and thought she beat it. However, it came back with a vengeance and spread to different parts of her body including: her liver, her chest, her bones and her brain.

6 News first met Sarah in June when her friends got together with Froyoz Frozen Yogurt and successfully raised $25,000 for alternative treatment at the Burzynski Clinic in Houston.

Ways to help Sarah Davis

  • One of her friends started a Facebook page called Saving Sarah to help bring her as many prayers as possible.
  • Sarah's blog
  • To send Sarah something in the mail (cards, candy or donations) use this address: Sarah Davis, P.0. Box 50804, Knoxville, TN 37950
  • Donate to help with her enormous medical bills

While everyone who meets Sarah is captivated by her bright smile and joy for life, she'll be the first to admit that her battle has not been easy. "I have hard days," she said. "Fifteen pills or more a day is a difficult thing to do."

Under the Burzynski clinic's recommendations, Sarah has had two new rounds of chemotherapy in Knoxville, and treatment with the Gamma Knife to deal with the brain lesions.

Doctors recently made a disappointing finding. "When they got in there, they discovered instead of three lesions, like they initially thought, there were 10 new ones that appeared in about three to four weeks time," Sarah explained.

Sarah is very matter-of-fact about this latest round of bad news and says it's not fracturing her faith. "I have a really strong faith in God, and I know He's right in the middle of all this," she said.
