Support For Kimberly

Recently my sister Kimberly was diagnosed with invasive ductal breast cancer.  She found a lump and received a lumpectomy shortly after.    They removed the tumor and lymph nodes to check if it had spread beyond the duct.  Unfortunately, the biopsy showed that 2 of the 3 removed lymph nodes contained the cancer.  She will be having a second surgery to remove more lymph nodes and tissue around the area that contained the tumor.  As of right now the next steps will involve another biopsy, a ct scan, chemotherapy, and then radiation.  
Kimberly excitedly just moved into a new place to call home for her and her 4 yr old daughter Addison.   She is worried of not having the financial means that are needed to keep her home and provide for herself and Addison due to being unable to work for awhile.  My sister is a wonderful person and if you’re also lucky enough to know her then you are aware of her charismatic personality, unbelievably kind heart, and her adoration for her daughter.  I’m sure like most people who have dealt with cancer of a loved one are thinking or have thought how could this happen.   My family and I are no different.  I’m saddened and pained beyond words that this is inside of her, and that while her surgeon is of a very positive and nurturing demeanor, we still don’t know what may come.  Any donation would be beyond appreciated, even if it’s just words of encouragement to help her through this.   Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read this and pray that we get this ugly thing out of such a beautiful person.
