Breast Cancer Surgery Needs Fixing

Elouise G MacKay  PORTLAND, OR

 No one, certainly not me, ever expects to hear the words, "you've got cancer." I heard those words in April of 2012 and I'm still reeling from the impact. A diagnosis of breast cancer brings many issues to bear. Dealing with the loss of my right breast, being hospitalized for a severe infection , and financial problems are among the many situations I'm dealing with.

   Like most families, I pretty much live pay check to pay check.
I was definitely not prepared for the devastation caused by my diagnosis. The surgery and recovery went very well, but I was not prepared for the infection, fatigue, pain, emotional distress. Don't get me wrong; I know I'm fortunate to be alive! I am thankful everyday I live in this modern time of medical breakthroughs.

Please help me raise money for this important cause!  I'm grateful for any & all donations - No $$$ amount is too small or too great. Help me to get through this time as with much grace and dignity as possible. We all know that life is filled with uncertain circumstances; WE as a community can do our best to help, and one thing you can do is pass this link onto your social network!

Also, please continue to pray for God to continue providing the means to pay incoming medical bills, etc. What an amazing God we have, and he sure has provided in ways that we could never have imagined.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your support....your love....your kind words...and your prayers. You have ministered to our family in such a special way these past few months.
