Ms. Myrna's Battle w/ Breast Cancer

$6,975 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 27 months

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

Myrna is approaching her third chemo treatment. She is a very strong woman and the last visit we had with her she expressed so much gratitude for the outpouring of love and support that she has received. Before her last session she was given a bracelet that says, "I can do hard things." Myrna is amazingly strong and is anxious to put this all behind her. We will update everyone as soon as we have any new info. Thanks again for all your support. If you would like to send her a special card before her next treatment to lift her spirits, please send it to 4844 S Val Vista Dr. Ste A105 Gilbert, AZ 85298.

I would like to update you all about Myrna's situation. The final pathology after her surgery revealed that her breast cancer is more advanced and aggressive than originally diagnosed. She will need systemic treatment, which will include 6 rounds of chemotherapy. She is scheduled to start treatment on 10/26/16. She is terrified, but trusting in God still.

Myrna cannot thank you enough for all of your support and love. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Feel free to share this update along with a link to her gofundme. We are also still collecting get well cards and gift cards at TotSpot for her. Please feel free to drop them off M-F 8-3:30 or you can mail them directly to us at 4844 S. Val Vista Dr. Ste. A105 Gilbert, AZ 85298. We will be delivering them to her weekly. Please like our Facebook Page (TotSpot) to receive updates. We will be having monthly dinner/dessert nights at local establishments to continue to support Myrna. We would appreciate your support for those as well. Please also join us for our Fall Festival on November 4th from 5:30-8 pm to show your support. If you have something you would like to donate for the silent auction that night to benefit Ms. Myrna, please let us know 480-584-4064.

Ms. Myrna's surgery went well. Everything went smoothly. Biopsies of the lymph nodes indicate normal/benign tissue. She will be returning home once her pain is under control. We are so relieved to hear that the surgery went as planned and now she's on to reconstruction and recovery. Myrna is so very grateful for the outpouring of love and support that has come her way. She knows that she is not alone in this journey. Recovery will take some time, and we are collecting gift cards for meals and entertainment (Amazon & iTunes) at TotSpot. We are also collecting hand made cards expressing love and support to take to Ms. Myrna. If you are farther away, you can mail them to us at 4844 S. Val Vista Dr. Ste. A105 Gilbert, AZ 85298. We will be delivering them to her regularly. Thank you again for all of your love and support.
