Debbie's Breast Cancer Treatment

$13,615 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 145 people in 69 months
My mother, Debbie Moore, is fighting Breast Cancer. On February 8th, her 53rd birthday, while going through her first mammogram ever, she was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. She underwent a mastectomy on March 1st and began her first of many rounds of chemotherapy on April 16th.

As if treatment and recovery were not enough of a burden, the insurance company has refused to cover reconstruction surgery, the overnight stays after surgery, and as well as some chemotherapy costs.

As most of you know, we are struggling to cope with increasing costs.

With the help of my grandmother, we have created this amazing fund to help relieve the great burden.

Many of you know my father, Christopher Moore, as the owner of Autobahn Extremist. If we as a family at Autobahn Extremist have touched your life, please consider sharing this fund and donating in any capacity.

We are currently facing a standing bill of $50,000 dollars. It is a true feeling of helplessness to watch my mother struggle with the chemotherapy and also worry constantly about the viability of this family due to growing bills.

I am asking humbly for any donation amount that you are able to give in order to help our family through this stressful life-changing period. Messages of encouragement and support with your donation will be deeply appreciated during this emotionally challenging time.

Thank peace, love and light,
Barbara (Debbie's Mother-in-Law) and Shari ( Daughter)

It has been 4 years this last Spring since my cancer journey began. I am pleased to say that I am doing well!! I am 100% back...a little changed, more grateful, poorer financially but richer in knowledge and appreciation.

My wonderful daughter Shari, embarked on her own journey when I was diagnosed and I am very proud to say she is now in her her 3rd year on medical school.
She is back home in Cleveland this year and I enjoy the little time we get to share since she is always busy.

Since 2013, I have lost some friends to cancer, some are in treatment, and yet another is awaiting the results of a biopsy. Cancer comes swiftly, plays havoc on you and your family. For everyone going through this struggle, I pray for you and trust you will triumph. May you handle your challenges with grace.

Sincerely grateful,
Debbie Moore

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays. As we move into the holiday season and giving thanks we would like to thank everyone for your donations, thoughts and prayers and each way you have touched our lives. First of all, as my mother said, she is thankful for being alive, thankful for each drive to the doctor, warm blanket, care package, donation large or small and gifts of dinner during the worst times.

We are hopeful and moving toward an upswing as we prepare for pre-operative testing next week. The new surgery date is December 13th, on which the right side mastectomy and bi-lateral reconstruction will be completed.

Though we are moving toward the final stretch there are still several months of healing, check ups, drains, tubes and scares to come. The effects of the chemotherapy are still there, losing fingernails and toenails, numbness in the hands and feet and confusion.

Thank you again for keeping us in your thoughts and know that you too are in ours.

For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, For love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

With Love from the Moore Family
How far she has come!

Reconstruction and Mastectomy

As we enter October once again we are faced with some decisions that affect reoccurrence and outcomes. The end point is to be a survivor, but what path gets you there, with the least pain and suffering. This month my mother has decided to go ahead with reconstruction, but to also remove the other breast and complete the full mastectomy. Things will move forward soon and the recovery will be long. Please keep us in your thoughts. We are still battling to get costs covered and with the decision to do preventative measures, it is an uphill battle to cover the costs for her wishes. It is a shame that what may save your life comes at such a high cost. Please donate anything you can to our fund and thank you for your support.

Greetings from the Moore family!

I'd like to take some time and thank everyone for you're donations, prayers and support. They have been invaluable in this time and continue to be a major source of strength.

The second set of chemotherapy treatments started out very painful. My mom stayed in bed for 3 days straight, in too much pain to walk. The active drug Taxol causes a great deal of pain and swelling in the muscles and joins as well as skin color changes. It is now being managed with steroids and Claritin to keep the side effects at bay. She still has trouble walking around after the treatments but at least is able to find some relief with time.

Some good news came our way recently; there will be no need for radiation after the last chemotherapy treatment. After about a month a half of recovery, the reconstruction surgery will be performed. We have just two more Taxol treatments left; July 23rd marks the last chemotherapy treatment.

We are still handling the turbulence from an ill loved one but, at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel. My mom is in good spirits and I hope that the next few months are easier. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts.

As always donations, prayers, and your love are welcome and needed.
