Eff you to the Big C

As some of you may know, my mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Last Tuesday she underwent surgery to remove the tumor and will face 3-4 weeks of radiation and possibly chemotherapy. Even though she has insurance, the surgery is still going to cost her $1500 out of pocket. In addition, she has used all of her sick and vacation time for the surgery and her employer won't let her borrow from next year. Both radiation and chemotherapy would require her to take time out of each day for treatment as well as cause extreme fatigue. It would mean the world to me if my mom could get through this ordeal without also worrying about having to go to work every day or taking unpaid time off while in treatment.

So I am asking from the bottom of my heart to help reduce my mom's stress and give her a piece of mind as she fights to beat cancer and tells it to Eff off! Even the smallest donations will go a long way to helping her get there.

Thank you all so much in advance for your love and support. I am truly grateful for all the wonderful people in my life!
