Ellen was only 56 years old when she was diagnosed two years ago with inflammatory breast disease in one breast and breast cancer in the other. She has spent the last couple of years undergoing aggressive cancer treatments, including a double mastectomy.
Unfortunately, her cancer has metastasized, spreading to her bones, brain and skin. Ellen is on a very limited income and only gets about $16 dollars in foodstamps a month. She was saving them for a whole year to spend on a Thanksgiving meal, only to discover just before the holiday that she had been sent a new card, which turned out to be stolen from her mail and completely depleted.
Through all of her trials and all of her pain, Ellen remains a positive light and source of love and hope to her friends and family. She has three rescue dogs and three rescue cats that she loves almost as much as her two grandchildren and daughter who all adore her. Ellen has gotten to the point that she can no longer walk her dogs herself.
Her life has been spent loving animals and serving them as a vet tech and working with rescue charities. She loves the outdoors and spending time with her family children and grandchildren.
Ellen can no longer make ends meet on her own and needs help for groceries and some past due bills. Please consider donating to help this amazing woman.
