Then, on February 19, 2016, my fiancee, Mandy Sadler, was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. This is a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer that appears in less than 5% of breast cancer patients.
She's not going to sit back and take it on the chin, though. She's a superhero, and, like all good superheroes, she's going to fight.
She is Iron Mandy.
Instead of spending the next seven months planning the happiest moment of our lives, we're going to fight a battle we have no choice but to win. But we need your help. Mandy hasn't been able to work since the diagnosis, and while she's able to draw disability, those funds are limited and will eventually run out. I'm still working, but my income has to go toward the bills that we're already incurring, not any that might pop up due to medical bills and expenses related to the diagnosis.
We are going to use the money that we need to help offset costs during this ordeal, and anything that we have left over is going to go help other women in our community that have been diagnosed with breast cancer that aren't as fortunate we are to blessed with great friends and family like all of you!
