Stephanie's cancer bill fund

Throughout my life I have played many roles, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother,and lets not forget, a cancer patient. I have Stage 3, hormone positive, breast cancer. I don't like to focus on that last one. I like to focus on my three babies, Madison age 5, Lily age 4, and Riley age 2. They keep me pretty busy which helps keep my mind off being sick. We don't use the "C" word at our house. The girls know that mommy is very sick, but they like to focus on the funny fact that mommy has no hair. We try to keep a little humor in a not so funny situation. My wonderful husband, Jesse, has been so helpful with the girls and a wonderful support during this time. I am almost finished with my second round of Chemotherapy. I will be having the first of two surgeries on March 4th. I will follow surgery with 6 weeks of radiation due to cancer positive lymph nodes and I will have a second surgery over the summer. Many people have already donated money to us and I want to say thank you so much to all of you!! It has been so helpful with the mounting medical bills, hospital bills, childcare while I am at treatment and income lost from not being able to work very much. I will have to take 5 weeks off with both surgeries. I appreciate everyone who can help us during this difficult time. Anyone who knows me knows that I am horrible at asking for help, but everyone needs a little assistance now and then. I will continue to fight hard. I have too much to live for!! Thank you for everything you all have done. We love all of you!!
