My Friend Mary (Mary Andrade )

Go Fund Me Mary story Recently my friend had a gastric sleeve surgery and while she was recovering from this surgery it was discovered that she has breast cancer. The blessing is that it is Stage 1. The down side is that she was out of work on medical leave and was only able to return 1 day, when this all came up and she now has had to go back out on another leave, after already exhausting her sick leave and entire savings in the process. Mary needs help paying medical bills and purchasing all the medication needed for her to beat this. She has to see a Holistic physician because of the differences from the gastric sleeve and things that cause and/or aid in cancer growth. She is scheduled for a partial mastectomy tomorrow. She is a very kind and loving women who helps so many. She is a foster parent for teens and active member in her community, volunteering at our Fire Department and at her church. She does an annual blanket drive for the elderly and homeless every year. When anyone is in dire straits, Mary never hesitates to offer help with whatever is needed, even if she's in short supply, & she always does so with love & no strings attached. A couple of years ago, she even took a homeless man and his dog to her own vet because she noticed the man's dog was losing weight and after hearing the dog was in renal kidney failure, took the man and his dog out to a nice park and took pictures of them for his memories (that she later developed and gave to him) and made arrangements for the dog to be put to sleep. The following week - went to get the lovely box of ashes, draped in velvet and returned it to the man. A year later - she got a call from the same man - that he had another dog and could no longer care for it and asked if she would take it and give it a home. She welcomed Umo into her home. She gives so unselfishly from her heart each day and now she needs our help! Please help this kind woman out - even the smallest donation can help purchase some of the medications, vitamins, supplements and special nutrients she must now have - for life.
