Please Help Theresa with Chemotherapy & Rent

This GoFundMe has been created to help Theresa Chandler, during her second fight against cancer. Theresa and I have been friends since we were 6 years old. Fast forward 40 years, and she is still the kindest, most loving, and optimistic woman I know. Theresa isn’t a stranger to difficult times. Life hasn’t been as kind to her, as she has been to it. She gives way more than she ever takes, and I’m always in awe of her positive outlook and faith. Her experiences could have turned her cynical and cruel, but instead she shows us how life is meant to lived! No one deserves cancer. Everyone goes through hardships. But dammit!!! This woman deserves a small break from life’s hurdles!!! Theresa’s cancer battle began almost two years ago. She became very ill, with what she thought was the flu. She had other symptoms, and after testing, doctors confirmed it was cervical cancer. Theresa had surgery, treatment, and never missed a day of work! She went to work sick from chemotherapy with a smile and the eternal optimism only she has, and she beat it!!! The cancer was gone and she was on top of the world... A couple months after that, she fell ill again. This time during the pandemic. She thought it may be COVID-19, but tests came back abnormal. After more testing, they discovered two tumors in her stomach lining. After a biopsy, they diagnosed her with stomach cancer...This time is very different from her first battle...this time it’s cancer during COVID-19. Her chemotherapy compromises her immune system, and she has to stay at home. She cannot work. Theresa has sold her car (the one she worked so hard to buy), and everything she owns to pay for her cancer treatment!! She has rent and utilities piling up. She meets with her oncologist in two weeks, where she will ask him to let her return to work part time. It’s a huge risk for her to return to work (she works retail), but she has no other choice. THIS IS WHERE WE CAN HELP! I cannot even imagine fighting cancer, let alone during a pandemic, and the financial burdens she’s faced with. It’s starting to take a toll on her. She is putting on a brave face, and trying to remain the same positive soul she’s always been, but the gravity of her situation is slowly beginning to steal her shine. I see my friend becoming weary. The stress taking hold —–— Theresa isn’t an extravagant and materialistic person. She lives a simple life, well within her means. Her family is her world!!! Her three sons, and her four beautiful grandchildren are everything to Theresa, and she is everything to them! Please help alleviate the financial burdens she is facing. No amount it too small. It all adds up! It is my hope that we can raise enough to help with the basics: rent, utilities, food, and treatment through the end of the year. So she isn’t stressed during the holidays, and she can FINALLY focus on her healing journey. We love you Theresa!!! You’re not alone!!!
