Tiffany Perkins Battle with Cancer

Our cousin, Tiffany Thornton Perkins, recently received the devastating news that not only did she have advanced breast cancer, but preliminary tests found tumors on her spine that needed immediate removal to prevent paralysis.  The surgery on her spine leaves her permanently immobile in the neck and cervical spine area.  She will be seeing the oncologist and radiologist to begin immediate aggressive treatment.  Tiffany's family lives in Minor Hill, TN and Limestone County, AL and has been traveling to Nashville, sometimes daily.  

To further explain the family's situation, Tiffany's mother, Renee, received the news that she herself has an advanced stage of breast cancer and is being treated aggressively in Nashville also.  In fact, she received a strong chemo treatment across town in Nashville on the day Tiffany was scheduled for neurosurgery.  Renee will soon be undergoing a double mastectomy.

Tiffany has insurance with her employer, however, family members will have to pay the full insurance premiums since she is unable to work.  Tiffany is a single mother of two teenage children.  This family is a hard working farm family that has 4 members that have been diagnosed with cancer in the last 4 years.  With Tiffany's diagnosis of cancer, 3 members are now undergoing treatment.

There are countless trips from Minor Hill to Nashville, the cost of insurance premiums indefinitely, as well as numerous other expenses for this family.  

Our Goal:

1.  To alleviate financial burden and stress during Tiffany's battle with cancer.

2.  To provide necessities for her 2 teenage children.
