Our dear friend Claire has been diagnosed with breast cancer, has received a positive prognosis and is scheduled for a mastectomy in June 12, 2018.

This drastic and time-sensitive news has knocked Panda onto her ass emotionally, physically AND financially.

She has a wonderful support network in us, her loving friends and family.

Claire is going to be unable to work for an undefined amount of time, and needs any financial help we can provide.

If there is any money leftover, it would be used to further education in her new career passions: cancer patient care and healing body shame.

Hello everyone. Life movies fast when you're riding all the feelings up and down. For those that aren't aware, I got my pathology report yesterday and I have been gifted clear margins. They are confident they got it all. It was not invading other tissue (like skin). I did have 1 lymph node affected out of 4 but it was the first node leaving the breast. The one beyond was clear and the other 2 in my breast were clear. I will likely need further treatment but it's 2 weeks until I meet with the oncologist so I'm going to do everything I can to relax until then which is really hard on this anxiety train. Relief comes knowing I will not get any more information to worry about during this 2 week time. Thanks for all your love and support. Life would be much harder without you. Gratitude. Love. Hugs. All the good stuff. Thank you!

Hello everyone. It has taken me longer than I wish to figure out how to update and thank you all on here but I believe I am in understandable circumstances :-P I just wanted to thank you for your amazing generosity. I am blown away by how quickly we got to the goal. Thank you for helping me. The next part is potentially challenging as I no doubt have to look at further treatments and decide what is best for me. I continue to ride the rollercoaster of daily feelings. I will probably leave the gofundme up because I may run into future challenges. Without health benefits I am noticing that ow physio is expensive! But necessary if I want full range of motion in my shoulder again. Thank you a million times, I look forward to real hugs sometime soon. Love, Claire

Wow! Thank you!

Claire is back at home after her surgery, and doing well (from what I can tell). I’m so proud of her, and how she’s taking this whole thing.

Thanks to everyone that’s donated, and made her life a lot more manageable.

We just passed the $8,000 mark (the initial funding goal) an hour ago and it warms my heart.

Love Cam

Sharing from Claire's FB update:

"Oh nuthin, just gathering a bag for things I need at the hospital...

These will make everything awesome, I am sure...

at 6:45am I'm having a blue dye radioactive injection so they can follow the path to know what lymph nodes in my armpit to remove.

Send my love if you're awake!

I want all my nerves in there to get out of the WAY so I have the least amount of complications in my dominant arm!!

Surgery will be around noon, give or take. It won't take long.

Love you all!"
