Help Jill Beat Breast Cancer

Hi there and thank you so much for visting this special GFM page. My name is Kellie and I have created this page because my dear friend, Jill, has been diagnosed with an aggressive type of breast cancer called Her2-Overexpress. Jill has developed two tumors in her left breast and will require surgery rather quickly in conjunction with chemotherapy. She will need a team of doctors to hit this cancer head on and my hope is to raise enough money to help alleviate some of the financial pressure of it all.

A little bit about Jill:

Jill is a remarkable woman. She is a wife, a mother of three young children, and an incredible friend. She possesses a unique spunk and love for life that is felt instantly by anyone she is around.  She has an awesome sense of humor, is supportive in every sense of the word, and is extremely hard-working. So hard-working that she currently works two part-time jobs at night so that she can stay home with her kiddos during the day. That will soon change as she will not be able to work as she always has so money will be incredibly tight. 

The truth is there is no telling what the future holds and the fear of the unknown is very real.  The one thing I do know is that Jill is tough as nails. She will BEAT this and she will do it in high spirits! ...however, there will be doctor's appointments, and surgeries, and chemo, and the recovery time will be extensive. That is why I cannot express enough how greatly this money is needed right now and how deeply APPRECIATED it is. Given the magnitude of this all, I know she will be able to find some sense of comfort in knowing that there will be a little extra in the bank for when things get really tight. The ultimate goal is for her to start this journey knowing that she has some financial cushion because the last thing she needs to exert her worried energy on is money. Please know that every penny of your donation will be helping my beautiful friend and her family financially survive this devastating time. This money will be put toward medical bills, her three beautiful kids, household needs, and any unexpected expenses that may arise. This family is so special and deserves every ounce of your generosity. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Thank you for taking the time to read Jill's story and thank you for giving a gift to help her along in this journey.
