Help Lindy Kick Cancer's Butt!

On February 5, 2013, I found a lump in my breast and immediately went to the doctor to have it checked out. After a series of imaging and biopsies, I learned it that I had a 10 cm mass which contained stage 3 breast cancer. I was hopeful that it had been caught early because I had just had a mammogram last October, but that wasn't the case. Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer is a slow growing cancer that is not easily detectable by imaging or self examination. All indications are that the mass has been growing for a while.

On March 4, I began my treatment journey, which will consist of Chemotherapy, a Mastectomy, Radiation Therapy, second Mastectomy, Reconstruction surgery and then Hormone Therapy. It is going to be a long road, but I am trusting God to carry me through the journey.


On April 1, my husband found out that the company he worked with was closing its doors. Which unfortunately meant that he would be losing his job and we would be losing our insurance. After digging deeper, we learned that the company had not made the premium payments for the group insurance policy for the months of February and March, meaning that although we thought insurance was covering the treatments, it was not. We have been working non-stop to figure out the insurance situation, to make sure Lindy has coverage moving forward, but have accumulated tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills.


We are unsure of how we will cover all of our expenses, and appreciate any help you may be able to give. We know that God will provide.
