Sheila Shine Cancer Fund
Our hearts are very heavy at this hour and we desperately need your help as soon as possible. You may not know that Sheila has had a series of chronic illnesses and most recently has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Since May she has had two failed lumpectomies. She was scheduled for a third surgery on November 6th but canceled it feeling she had no hope of getting through it without any resources available. At this point, her oncologist wants her to undergo a mastectomy as soon as possible, which requires four to six months of recovery. Sheila is also exploring naturopathic options in an attempt to save her "tiny ta-tas."
Due to Sheila's on-going health issues, she is now also facing foreclosure on her property and her dream. Quite frankly, she is in a desperate situation and totally overwhelmed. She needs immediate help to secure her home by Jan 1st 2015 and on-going support to provide her with what she will need to survive the surgery (or alternative treatment) and the winter. Any and all help from you would be life-saving.
Ironically, as many of you know, Sheila originally purchased her property in North Carolina with the intention of opening Spirits Rising, a healing retreat center for those in need. We greatly believe in her dream and are exploring ways to help make it a reality.
Please join us in creating a “Circle of Love” to lift the heavy burden that is threatening to snuff out the light of Sheila Shine. Help spread the word and, if at all possible, make a donation today, no matter how large or small. Together we can do this!
We encourage you to share on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sheila-Shine-On-Breast-Cancer-Fund/811887298849631?ref=hl) and spread the word that our dear friend is in need of love and support.
Let’s help show her we all want Shelia to Shine On!
Thank you for your
Friends of Sheila Shine
Soooooo, I'm flat broke, flat chested and I have never felt so blessed in my life! (I feel like Barbara Satter Dobuler Lefkowitz) I found out ... while many of you were sending LOVE, prayers and positive energy my way, that after five tries... it seems like they have finally reached the original goal of removing the cancer from my chest. One of my nurses told me that in twenty years she has never witnessed anyone have to endure so many surgeries just to remove the cancer. It's not like I had very big ta tas to start out with so you can only imagine the mess of a chest that I am left with. I now realize... I can handle that part just fine. I AM and I pray that I will continue to be a survivor and that the cancer has not had the opportunity to reach any other precious parts. I still have a very long road ahead of me, but thanks to some amazing angels like Erin Scholze, Barbie Angell, Adrian Zelski, Laura LaFleur, Jenna RoseMari, and Scott Swimmer who are planning some amazing events at New Mountain in order to help save my life and my land so we can continue with the dream of Spirits Rising. I now have hope... where truth be told I was quickly running out of hope and options. I owe soooooooooo many of you so very much!! I thank all of you beautiful angles that have been there for me. You most certainly have saved my life or at the very least... extended it for a while!! So, now I am off to New Mountain to dance my worries away with Michael Franti! "All the freaky people make the beauty of the world" and I lovelovelovelovelove each and every single one of you!! Thank you for all of your support!!!
With love ,

I am sad to inform you in this manner. Especially about someone we care so much about, Sheila Shine. I have been friends with Sheila for over 17 years. She is a kind and giving friend to all. She is one of the most positive & energetic persons I know. She brings a shining light wherever she is, I am guessing that is where the Shine came from. How she appreciates life, how she is sensitive to others feelings, and has an understanding of life that is admired by anyone that has had the great opportunity to get to know her. The thought of possibly losing her is unbearable. I have faith with our love and support we can help her get through this. We are requesting your prayers and in your wonderful way sending good intentions. We can pull together as a community to help her win this battle. I am asking for any help. Even sharing this with other is a big help. My sincere gratitude and appreciation for your help. Thank you!!! Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ•*¨`*•
