Danielle felt a lump in her right breast in the beginning of this year (2013) but was reassured that because of her young age it was more than likely fibrosis tissue and was completely normal. She was seen by a doctor in early September as it was becoming more and more worrisome. This doctor ordered a mammogram and the turmoil began. Danielle had four tumors in her right breast and underwent a bilateral mastectomy. Surgery confirmed she had a positive lymph node which was a bummer to the treatment because it ensured she will need to go through chemotherapy for 16 weeks, starting November 6th. Danielle will then go through 6 weeks of radiation, 5 days a week. After radiation she will have a couple reconstruction surgeries. All in all the doctors say that she is looking at a year until treatment ends should everything go as planned.
Since leaving work for treatment, Danielle has been dropped from her health insurance coverage. Leaving a cobra premium of $1300 a month which seems untouchable in this position. Every penny donated will go to the payment of the medical premium to continue health insurance coverage.
