Bettina's Beatin Breast Cancer Fund

$5,358 of $23,986 goal

Raised by 59 people in 29 months
On January 26, 2017 Bettina found a lump sitting between her ribcage and her left breast.  Alarmed, she quickly went in to see her primary care doctor and a slew of tests including bloodwork, mamogram, ultrasound, MRI and needle biopsy confirmed her worst fear.  In the middle of February, she heard the terrifying words "You have breast cancer".  

In the next 2 weeks, Bettina will undergo a double mastectomy at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California. Surgery and follow up treatment will make it impossible for her to run her owner operated personal chef and cleaning company for several months. She won’t be able to stay in her home without help.

As a single mom to 9 yr old Zoe, it is critical that Bettina be able to focus on her healing and not worry about where she will live or if she can afford food or to keep the lights on.  Zoe needs her mama to get well quickly!  I've known Bettina for about 10+ years and her daughter is the center of her Universe.  Bettina MUST win this fight.

This GO FUND ME campaign is to help Bettina offset the huge cost of cancer treatments as well as the life-altering deficit in her income.  There is no way she can keep her home or afford monthly expenses without an income.  

Here is a list of Bettina's expenses.  She will have no income starting on Monday, the day of her surgery.

Please help Bettina Beat Breast Cancer by donating towards her medical and living expenses.  Please share this with your friends and family.  Every little bit will help.

Rent $1485 
Utilities $290 
Groceries/household/personal supplies/misc $500 
Car payment $395 
Insurance $370 (Health, business, auto) 
Gas/transportation $300 
That is a total of $2890 per month. 

Total estimated time off work for treatment 8 months.

Total living expenses needed covered $23,120

Once we have more information on Bettina's condition and status, this page will be updated.

Thank you,

Nicole Radoumis-Weiler
