On June 24th, 2015, Renee recieved a phone call that no thirty-one year old woman, and indeed no woman at all, ever wants to receive.  Stage 2 breast cancer.  

(^^^Who doesn't want save these?!?!^^^)


Her prognosis is good, and her spirits are high, but Renee has a battle ahead of her.  While insurance is going to cover a good deal of the fight, there will be significant out-of-pocket expenses to ensure her quality of life during treatment and recovery (co-pays, fuel, mileage, etc).  She's also looking into having her eggs frozen (let's be honest, we ALL want more humans like Renee in this world) and that also comes at great expense.

(^^^I mean really, even just hanging out in a t-shirt, the girls are fabulous!^^^)


You're reading this because you care about Renee and want to help get her healthy as soon as possible.  So, if you ever admired, coveted, or even cracked a joke about the wonderous and beautiful things that are Renee's boobies, now is the time to put up or shut up. 

(^^^be careful, she might spray paint you^^^)

Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support!

Hey friends!
Sorry it's been so long since the last update. If you haven't heard, Renee had surgery in December to remove the cancerous tumors in her breast and lymph nodes...and the doctors got it all out! Yay!
Over the past few months, Renee went through and completed 33 rounds radiation. (We're still waiting to see if she develops any new super powers, beyond kicking cancer's ass!)
So that's the good news! She beat the cancer! (Though they can't officially say she's in remission or cured for a number of years). And she's ROCKING the super short pixie haircut!

The bad news: The bill for her radiation treatment came in today and it's close to $6000. Yikes! Renee is contacting her insurance company, etc. and trying to figure out if there has been a mistake, but kids...she's gonna need some support because she still has other cancer treatment related bills on top of this.

Thank you all for your donations. Please consider sharing this GoFundMe site with your friends, family, neighbors, distant relations...

Every penny raised over the amount she needs to take care of her cancer treatment costs will be donated to the American Cancer Society, so don't worry that she's going to be taking any "extra" money and vacationing in Fiji when this is all over with...though who would blame her?

Hello friends!

You may have noticed that we've upped the goal. Renee is now two treatments into chemotherapy. After learning that some beneficial treatments (like pricey white blood cell boaster shots) are not covered by Renee's insurance and after receiving the final bill for freezing little future baby DeGarmos, I figured this might be helpful.

Please know that every cent over what is actually used in Renee's battle against this terrible cancer will be donated the American Cancer Society.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jessica through this site.

Thank you ALL for your support!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!
