Cancer Fight for Local Teacher

I am trying to raise money to help a local teacher who has always gone the extra mile for the kids she teaches and never sought attention in doing so. She was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and is currently in her 2nd round of chemo and then radiation. She had to stop working about 8 months ago after a masectimy and chemo started. Kristen lives with her husband and teenage daughter in a one bedroom apartment and their financial struggle is very real. Both her husband Paul and daughter Madelyn are working full time, but it just isn't enough. Week groceries are not what they need to be to help her build up her strength with the right nutrients. Many months getting the entire rent is tough too. The medication is super expensive and it's tough to see her go through all this when she has been such a Wonderful example of a mother and teacher. Anything you can do to help will not go unnoticed. Thank you for you time.
