Isabel, a WONDERFUL housekeeper and care giver to so many people, was diagnosed with breast cancer in early November.  Thanks to early detection by a mammogram,  this was caught early and the recommened treatment is a lumpectomy as well as follow up care.  Through the help of Dr. Leslie Memsic and Dr. Heather Richardson at Bedford Breast Center, they are performing the surgery TODAY, 12.15.2017.  Although the majority of the fees were graciously waived,  there are still remaining expenses.  Sor far, Wendy Cassileth and I have covered the consult fee and the initial lab fees.   We are hoping to get some additional contributions so we can at least cover this surgery, and he labs.  We would also like to help compensate her for time off of work while goes through radiation and chemo.   If you are interested in contributing, please do so - it is greatly, greatly appreciated.  Since this was caught so soon, the treatments are happening quickly, and we are looking to get donations as soon as possible.  Isabel, her husband and son are overwhelmed already with everyone's emotional and financial support.  Thank you in advance!!!
