Cecilia's Fight Cancer/ IVF Fund
Now she could use our help!!! She recently found out last Friday that she has breast cancer.This not only sucks , but also may even affect her childbearing status as she has recently been in the process of the steps necessary to have a baby. To let her have this choice of having a baby and not be CANCER'S choice, she is also working with the Jones Insititute to begin the embryo harvesting process. She does have medical insurance, but let's be honest- her medical insurance will nowhere cover the amount of bills she is going to recieve and doesn't even cover a $1 of the IVF process. The IVF/harvesting process alone costs $12,500. We all know she has a long road ahead of her and I would love to be able to take care of some of the burden on Cecilia's shoulders and raise money to help her fight breast cancer!! The proceeds will all go towards Cecilia Sotomayor and go towards all of Cecilia's medical expenses and possible IVF/embryo harvesting procedures.
If you are able to donate any money, even $5, it would help! Please please please share this and lets show Cecilia some support of the fight she has in front of her. She is a strong women and will get through this!! Let's beat cancer!!
It's been a rough week. Ha! To say the least. I finally feel that I am strong enough to share my news (with a little help from a dear friend, Danielle)...Without the support and love from
my amazing friends/family/work-family, I would never have survived the news that I have invasive breast cancer. Stage 1. Apparently that's a 'good' sign- I'm sorry, but nothing about cancer is 'good.' I went from being scared sh*#less to feeling numb and now hopeful: Hoping to get this f#€%ing cancer out of me!! I still need to wait for my genetic testing to come back to make my final decision for which surgery on 8/21. Unfortunately, I have a strong family history of breast cancer on my mother's side- but MORE importantly I have my mother: A 27 YEAR SURVIVOR- and for all those who know her, a firecracker! I am also grateful to have my maternal aunt who has survived many years! The cost of this is way beyond cancer...genetic testing, IVF, egg retrieval, embryo harvesting, and so on and so on....and most of this is not even covered by my insurance!! However, I would never think to ask for help- but my friend has the biggest heart of gold and wanted to help me! It was the sweetest gesture! So I am asking for your patience as I pass through the gamut of emotions. And I am relishing in the incredible generosity, in the abundance of love, in the supportive advice from survivors, and all of the hugs and the "WE'VE got this, girl!" I am struggling, but I know that I will kick cancer's A$$. Then Tim and I can have the family and life we've always wanted- without the 'C' word!!! This is personal and this is real- I never would have thought about posting this on fb, but this is my life. And I will survive. Xoxo, CC
Danielle. I don't know you that well, but I can't express the thought, care and love with what you are doing to help Cc through this difficult time .
