Kierstyn Hunt's Medical Expenses

As many of you know, Kierstyn Hunt has been diagnosed with breast cancer. For those of you that don't know: On the 24th of November 2012, just 10 days after her 43rd birthday Kierstyn felt a lump in her left breast. On the 27th she got a mammogram, the 28th, a biopsy and by the 30th she was diagnosed with Stage IIIC Lobular Carcinoma. In layman's terms this means they removed the tumor, she chose to have the double mastectomy, but the lymph nodes are involved and aggressive treatment is needed to lower the chance the disease will spread. She started chemotherapy on the 24th of January and goes every 3 weeks for 8 sessions. After chemo there is radiation every day for 6 1/2 weeks.

Kierstyn is blessed with an unbelievable support system. She has a beautiful 21 year old daughter and an energetic 2 ½ year old son, amazing family and friends who are helping out anyway they can. Kier is still able to work, she is lucky in the sense she works from home and has a wonderful employer who is very supportive with all the time off she needs for doctor's appointment, chemo sessions and so on. She does have insurance but, with cancer, her out of pocket costs are starting to come in and we all know there are things that insurance just doesn't pay for.

This is where you come in. Everyone is asking what they can do to help and this is one more way you can. Our goal is to raise $7,000 for Kierstyn to pay for the out-of-pocket medical costs over the course of her treatment. If you would please take a small moment of your time to donate what you can, every dollar helps, to help Kierstyn and her family.

Any money over the goal amount will be donated to http://www.chicksnchaps.org/. This organization has been a blessing in disguise for this cowgirl at heart!
