Help us live a normal life:)

My name is Jenny, I am 33 years old, a single mother of 2 boys. Brendan is 15 and Dylan is 13. I as diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in September 2011. I recently had a double mastectomy and also my ovaries removed in hopes of slowing down the cancer. I have mets in my bones and liver as well. I was on hormone therapy for almost 2 years and that was working well, but I knew it wouldn't work forever. In June 2013 a cat scan showed the mets in my liver are getting worse and the cancer is spreading again. I started Chemotherapy right away..a pill form called xeloda which has some nasty and painful side effects. It's new so don't know if Its working or not yet, but if not the next step in IV chemo that will make me lose my hair and make me sick alot. I have been very lucky so far, but I knew it would get worse but I am trying to stay positive, although it is hard sometimes. Treatment is expensive and gas is high, I go to the dr every 2 weeks or so and that gets expensive. I am struggeling financially, trying to make ends meet and put food on the table. Any help financially and prayers are much appreciated:) God Bless!
