Abigail Jean Swanson is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Laurie Swanson.
Anyone who has met my Mom, Laurie Swanson, can attest to the fact that she is one of the most caring, selfless, and kindhearted people you'll ever encounter. Following her example, I have decided to take the initiative to return the same kind of compassion she would give to anyone in need. She is a powerhouse! When she was just a few years older than me (34), & a young mother of two, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. With the faithful, undying support of family and friends, she was able to kick its ass! After 26 years of remission, Laurie has been diagnosed with breast cancer again. I have absolute faith in her ability to beat it again, but it certainly won't be a walk in the park. She will have to undergo 3 different surgeries and chemotherapy. It is predicted to be a 1 to 2 year long process. This money will be put toward providing Laurie with the domestic tools she'll need to help her heal quickly and comfortably! She will not be able to sleep in her own bed, wear her regular clothes, or get around very easily for a long while. Donating money is giving her the gift of comfort and sleep! So, I am asking that you, our beloved friends, coworkers, acquaintances, and family, do what you can to help alleviate some of the inevitable stress of this long road Laurie has ahead. Whatever capacity or amount you can afford will be greatly appreciated by myself and everyone else who loves her.
