Lisa Hakim is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Lindsey Schaffer.
On January 29th, 2020 our sister Lindzey went to the ER with extreme rib pain. Upon CT scan, they found lytic lesions on her ribs, pelvis, sternum, and spine, as well as, a mass on her right breast. She was told by the ER doctor that it was highly probable she had breast cancer. She was admitted, and after a mammogram and breast biopsy, she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer with bone metastasis. She’s 29 years old.
Unfortunately, breast cancer “runs” in our family. Our mother had it in 2009, our grandmother had it, our Aunt currently has it, and most of our Great Aunts had it.
A stage 4 cancer diagnosis is also nothing new for our family. In 2013, our father was diagnosed with colon cancer, which metastasized to his brain in 2015. He lost his cancer battle in 2017, at just 61 years old.
Lindzey is such a fighter and she is doing everything in her power to beat this disease. She has the most positive attitude and wants to help other young women who might be going through this. She is one of the most generous people I’ve ever met, and she would do anything for anyone. If you know her, you already know she’s an amazing sister, daughter, aunt, girlfriend, and friend. ❤️
In addition to prayer, traditional treatment, and chemo, she has researched and studied everything she can on how to cure cancer holistically. She is following a very strict organic cancer killing diet and taking any supplements known to diminish this disease.
With the added complexity of COVID-19, Lindzey is working harder than ever at Zumiez, where she’s a District Manager over 7 stores. But even with insurance, the medical bills are accumulating faster than her salary can pay them, and all of the organic food and holistic treatments are extremely expensive.
We are asking for continued prayers, and donations to help pay her medical bills and enable her to continue her holistic treatments, which are not covered by insurance. Any amount is greatly appreciated, and would at least take the financial stress out of the equation, so that she can focus on healing.
If you cannot donate, PLEASE continue to pray for the complete healing of Lindzey’s body. We need EVERYONE’S prayers. Pray that the doctors are knowledgeable, that the treatment is working, and that every cancerous cell in her body be cast out by God’s powerful hands and replaced with a perfect one. Pray for Lindzey to remain strong and to not worry about the future. Pray for our Mother who is beside herself that our family is going through this again. And pray for everyone else who loves Lindzey and is emotionally impacted by this news.
God bless you for taking the time to read this.
