Help Kathy in Battling Breast Cancer

Can you help?
A few short weeks ago, Kathy Lindgren Haviland was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Stage 3. Since that time she has undergone a radical double masectomy. Been plauged by nasty infections, and reactions to her medication. She continues to keep faith she will beat this. Put yourself in this position for a moment. This happened so fast. No time for her to prepare. Not knowing how this will end. The medical bills with this life event are stagering. Not to mention what a person needs to live. She starts Chemo and Radiation theropy in the next few weeks. Not knowing how this will affect her ability to cope. She is planning on trying to return to work very soon in order to pay expenses and survive. After all life goes on. Not being able to sleep, the worries continue to multiply. Many of us feel helpless, wanting to help. Wanting to lift her up. How would you feel in this situation?
We can all help by reliving a small part of the financial burden Kathy is experiancing. This is a recovery fund for her. To help with medical bills, transportation to doctor appointments, Chemo appointments and the things in life that are not free. Releiving   part of the financial burden for her is something we all can do to help. Due to the sugery she still cannot lift her arms up very far. Everytime I call she starts with "Are you going to make me cry". I keep telling her we are here for her. She is so strong. But unless you have gone through something like this, You truly cannot completly understand what she is going through.

So can you or someone you know help? Can we organize some type of fundraising to help her? No one should have to go through this disease alone. WE CAN HELP.

I ask that you like this link and share it with all your freinds. We will continue to update Her progress on this site. We ask for your prayers that she will recover quickly from this. If you do not know what breast cancer is, research it. It will open your eyes to what this disease causes.
I want her to know she is not alone in this. There is strength in numbers. Visit Team Kathy Haviland on facebook.
If you can only give $1.00, it will be a great help. If you can only send prayers we are grateful.
