On Friday, May 23rd Leigh started her first round of Chemotherapy. Her next treatment is scheduled for Friday, June 6th. As of now with the current diagnosis, she will be receiving Chemo every 15 days for 6 months. Within that time, Leigh's entire body and health will be comprised. Luckily Hodgkin's is a very curable cancer and we know Leigh is STRONG and will come out on top, after-all she is SuperWoman!
Though Chemo affects every one differently, it's main function is to kill rapidly growing cells (cancer cells) and unfortunately these cells include white blood cells among others. As anyone who knows Leigh, will know that she plans on working as often as she can, but unfortunately Chemo will greatly lower her immune system which will ultimately keep her out of the gym (work) all together due to her high susceptibility to germs and bacteria.
Here's how you can help! Many people have reached out to Leigh and her support system trying to offer help. This is where you come in... Leigh would never be one to ask for any money from anyone (not even from me, her own sister). As the medical expenses begin to pile up, between doctors visits, medications, missed time at work, and so on, I want to be able assist her with this so it is one less stress during her journey.
A donation of any size (or a Flex Friday photo) would be very helpful and greatly appreciated! Thank you all! :)
