Support Lindsay's Battle

My name is Lindsay Kruse and I currently moved back to my home town in the Seattle area from the Bay Area due to a breast cancer diagnosis. While living in the Bay Area I was a single mother of my two children Nicolas (6) and Natalie (4) . On February 26th, 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. I had to make the tough decision to move back home to be near my family to support me through this process. With my son still in Kindergarten and how aggressive the type of cancer I was diagnosed with, I had to pick up and leave and come to Seattle to start my treatment. Fortunately they will be moving here permanently on June 11th. It was the hardest thing to do to have to leave my babies temporarily to fight cancer. It's never easy to find out you have cancer, especially at the young age of 31.

I started my chemo treatment in April at Swedish Cancer Center in Seattle, which I will receive 6 cycles of Chemo Therapy and then will have a double mastectomy followed by radiation.  I've never felt so ill in my life; chemo is some pretty serious stuff. Due to not feeling well during my treatments I've had to take a brake from work to take care of my health. With insurance only covering a certain amount of my hospital bills, I’m struggling financially to pay down my bills.  

My girlfriend, who recently went through breast cancer a few years ago, shared this site with me and she was able to raise enough donations to help cover her medical bills. It's always hard asking for money from people but even the smallest amount from everyone would really be helpful in helping me stay ahead of all my bills and help with other living expenses. I've had so many wonderful people reach out with kind and positive words to help me get through this tough time and I would be so thankful and blessed if I was able to even raise the smallest amount!

Thank you so much for reading my story and helping with a donation.


Sincerely,
Lindsay Kruse
