 CHICAGO, IL
Although our business deals with what is mostly seen on the outside, we treasure the opportunities in having the ability to help one another when it is needed most. We at Chicago Buzz have always regarded all our employees as a vital component of our business and hope we can now give back to someone in need. One of our treasured and revered stylists has been given an obstacle that we now hope we can help her with.

Brittany has just been starting her exciting life with her husband as they recently celebrated their first year of marriage together. Looking to start the joyous increase of adding to their family, they have unfortunately hit a rough patch with her sudden diagnosis of stage 2 Urethelial cancer at the age of 30. Things have progressed swiftly with immediate need for surgery for the removal of her right kidney and subsequent need for chemotherapy for her to have a chance.

As some of you might not know, this high dosage of chemo treatment harms the body and the prospects of future fertility. In order to begin the process of creating a new life, it needs to be preserved before this life saving treatment can take effect. Insurance will not cover her to preserve her eggs or the time she needs to take off from work as she battles this. With her home, life and their future children at stake we feel the need to help out one of our strongest and most beautiful employees.

Brittany is a fighter and we want to fight right alongside her. She has amazed us thus far with her strength and positive determination in the face of something that is out of her control and overwhelming at times. She is a beacon of hope and continues to shine as we all work alongside each other at our place of business.

Our goal is to try to cover her IVF procedure and make her feel financially comfortable enough so she can focus on her recovery and not feel alone in her battle. We want it so that she is not scared of losing their home possibly along with losing her life and family. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and to even have her in your thoughts.

So, it's hard to put into words how much you all mean to me. I never would have thought in a million years this would have happened to me, I don't think anyone ever does.. the support you have all shown me with just your words, makes me emotional....But the generosity you have shown me, is unlike anything I would have imagined. I know I have an amazing family, who are so supportive in every way, but friendship is another thing.. even the people whom I really don't know, you are like family... we all are. No matter what, I believe that we all can come together for a greater good, help each other in times of need, at any amount. Every kind word, every virtual hug or positive vibe, I felt. To say I'm not scared would be a lie, and we all know I am incapable of that, but I promise I am going to win, no matter if it's when I'm done with treatment, or when I'm eighty years old... I am a fighter, if you don't know me personally, just ask anyone close to me. I fight for what I believe is right, I fight for the ones I care for, and I fight for the ones who can't fight for themselves. I will be starting my chemotherapy on Wednesday, and I am scared to death, but, I am going to be ok. We all have to keep telling ourselves that, and eventually we'll make it happen, at any cost. Today was my last day at work for a couple months, and I cannot say enough times how grateful I am for my Buzz crew. They have done so much for me and worked with me through all of my health issues this past year and a half. My boss Laura is a saint, and even though she has a business to run, she's saving a spot for me to return. They all show so much compassion and care for me and I love them for it. I always will. The universe works in mysterious ways, and because of your support, it will be returned to you. Because you deserve it, because we all do. Please keep me in your thoughts, and whenever you want to reach out, do it. For anyone that comes across your mind, reach out to them, it means so much, it only takes a moment, but the benefits will last a lifetime... tell each other how much you mean to one another, smile to a stranger, reach out! You never know what someone is going through on the inside. I want to thank everyone for being there for Mark and I through this crazy time in our lives, and I hope it's just a little speed bump in this journey called life. I love you all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Wish me luck!!!!
