Help Carrie Innis Beat Cancer

Our dear family friend, Carrie Innis was just diagnosed with breast cancer. Let's help Carrie and her family focus on beating cancer just a little less stressed by raising money to cover her medical bills that are already piling up from just the diagnostic testing! Her husband recently took a new job and the insurance won't kick in for 90 days. Carrie was diagnosed with breast cancer after her husband began his new job. Carrie and her family's only focus should be on beating this cancer and not stressing about if the medical bills will be able to be paid and subsequently, if the Dr.s will begin timely treatments without insurance coverage. Time is of the essence in getting Carrie the right treatment to zap this breast cancer in the butt. It's stressful enough being diagnosed with cancer. She has a son and two beautiful daughters that desperately need their mom.  Let's help Carrie fight this and win! I'm donating to help Carrie and her family, will you? If you can't donate, please consider sharing.

In Carrie's words: "After watching the strongest man in my life (Carrie's dad) get painfully taken from cancer, I decided to start getting regular wellness checkups. Just knowing the pain of slowly watching a loved one pass away, I could only imagine how my children would feel if they lost their mom to cancer. Unfortunately, I received the dreaded call back after my mammogram saying they saw something abnormal. I then had a breast ultrasound and again, they found abnormalities.  By this time I had a sinking feeling, because my grandmother was also diagnosed with breast cancer and eventually passed away from cancer that spread to her hip bone. A breast biopsy was the next step for me. Once again, more distressing news. Breast cancer! Official diagnosis; invasive ductal carcinoma. MRI was ordered to see how far it has spread. I am so stressed that we are without insurance and the bills are piling up. I'm concerned they won't start the treatment without insurance and intervention is critical at this point."
