Help for Tessa fighting Cancer.

Tessa and I have been best friends for 18 years. She is like a sister to me and I want to help her. Tessa was diagnosed with Breast Cancer about 8 years ago. She went through chemo and radiation. Things seemed to get better, then 2 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer that metastasized to bone cancer. She truly is a trooper. She would go to work everyday to cover medical and house hold bills. Never complaining. You could see she was in so much pain. She recently has left work because her body just can do no more. She had to be put on oxygen. Now she just received another blow. She has MDS. (Myelodysplastic Syndrome). Her red blood cell count is very low and damaged. She told me yesterday of this and that the doctors have given her a year to live. Tess and I over the years have done some road trips. This, with all she was going through, is like the highlight of life. We always had a great time. Just getting away always lifted her spirit. It's like getting away from all life's stress, the sickness, and just being able to laugh and enjoy life. We are planning another road trip next month. Tess does not have a portable oxygen tank. We are trying to raise the funds for her tank and the trip. Tessa is an awesome and giving person and I so want to give back to her.
