Ms. Myrna's Battle w/ Breast Cancer
Myrna's introduction to the world of cancer began three years ago, when she and her two daughters founded Crochet for a Cause, Inc. - a non-profit organization that crochets hats for cancer patients to wear when they have lost their hair. Now, as she walks the halls of the cancer center and sees patients wearing crocheted hats, she realizes that she is now a patient, too.
Several weeks ago, Myrna was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. This comes just four months after her husband was involved in a terrible bike accident that was broadcast all over the local news. He is still recovering from that accident and doing what he can to wrap his mind around the news that his beloved wife has cancer. Together they have four amazing children. What else could they be other than amazing, with parents like Myrna and Marco?
Currently, Myrna has her plate full as she runs an assisted living home for seniors, helps care for her father who has Alzheimer’s disease, and works as a teacher's assistant at TotSpot Preschool. She has never complained or slowed down a bit through her husband's accident and recovery. She has quietly pushed along doing what she can to help meet their growing expenses. Myrna plans to continue working for as long as possible, but inevitably will need to take at least a couple of months off for treatment and surgery. This family has had a heavy year indeed. Please consider donating even a small amount. Together we can wrap our arms around this hard working, humble family, and lift them up in their time of need. We love you Ms. Myrna!!!!
The funds raised will go directly to Ms. Myrna. I am an administrator at TotSpot Preschool and am working side by side with the entire TotSpot family to help this family in any way that we can. When her treatment begins in the next couple of weeks, I will post a link to a meal sign up for her family. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call us at TotSpot Preschool. We are so grateful for any and all assistance. #gobeyondgiving

A heartfelt thank you to everyone for all your support. I am so touched by all your kindness and generosity. I truly feel loved and thank God that He has blessed me with such loving friends and family. “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
