Christina Bedard Breast Cancer Fund
Christina has a wicked sense of humor, a heart of gold, an amazing husband, and the wittiest 12-year-old kid on the planet … And she has breast cancer. A month ago, she went to the doctor for her follow-up and was told the cancer she had been previously told she had beat -- has now metastasized to her bones and is currently in Stage 3.
This is a race against the clock.
While beating cancer requires a strong incentive and a warrior spirit, it requires support. It requires prayers. And – in order to receive the best medical care without drowning in personal debt – it requires the financial aid of family, friends, and kind-hearted donors. If you have donated in the past, we thank you so much for your generosity and rising to this occasion.
And if you are reading this, Christina still needs your support.
After pouring her energy into finding the best cancer treatment for her unique situation, it's been determined that 10 rounds of radiation, monthly shots, and bi-weekly doctors visits are required for Christina to make her recovery.
Here's the problem: The pet scan necessary to identify the cancer was deemed "not medically necessary" by the insurance company and has a cost of $12,000.
Between that and the additional bills of medication, doctor's visits, and time lost from work, we are seeking $20,000 to provide Christina with the care that she needs.
Thank you in advance for your support of this effort. It truly takes a village. Please see the photos and captions below to learn more about Christina, and why we must do everything possible to ensure this Mama is healthy.
Being the rock and stability for her daughter Kaia, that is all the incentive this strong, fierce, warrior woman needs to make kicking cancer’s ass her personal mission. Christina wants to be in Kaia's life for many years to come, and with proper treatment is a possibility.
As Kaia put it, “My Mom is awesome and she deserves to live. I love her more than anything.”
Which is why her friends, who know firsthand that Christina’s big personality is only matched by her big heart, are coming together to help her win the biggest battle of her life. She'd do it for us.
Please help this fierce Mama beat cancer by showing your love and support here.
This past year has kicked my butt! Cancer (duh), lost my job, moving, lost my health insurance, and it took me forever to find a new job, which pays far less than I need, means I'm exhausted and feeling a little deflated and defeated.
I'm almost there... we're almost there... where we were before the nightmare. Just need a little boost, to get us over this hump. I will tell you, getting sick and starting over is remarkably difficult! I highly recommend against it.
It's the holiday season, and I know you have others to think about. And so if you add me to your list, or if I'm on your list already, what would help is a donation. It needn't be huge because, in all honesty, $5 helps! I don't need anything else. I have most everything else I need, my health and I'm happy!
Thank you in advance. Blessed holidays!
I'm 1 week away from my final surgery!
I thank you for all you've done. It helped. Tremendously.
While I still have a lot of medical expenses, you all got me through the thick of it with all of your support. I just wanted you all to know how truly blessed I know I am for each and every one of you.
I thought I was done.
I thought I was going to move forward and all my prayers had been answered.
Unfortunately, I had a setback, as you may have read.
So I am reaching out to you all again.
I am missing more time from work than I had planned.
I should know better than to plan...
If you have it to spare, I would appreciate it.
And of course, I always love and welcome positive energy!
Thank you. Again.
