A Mother and Daughter's Battle with Cancer

Teresa and Stephanie are a mother and daughter who are fighting cancer together.

Stephanie was diagnosed previously, and has undergone surgery and other treatments for the past few years. Recently her tests showed that the cancer is back. She will have to undergo treatment again. This time that will involve removing part (or possibly all of) her tongue, as well as other treatments.

Teresa is her mother. She was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer and is going through her own surgery and treatments.

Together, these strong women are working to raise Stephanie's son, who has Autism, and his own significant needs.
While fighting cancer and raising Jareth, they are also both coping with the recent loss of Teresa's husband.

Due to all of these circumstances, Teresa does not currently work, and Stephanie is having to quit her job.

Both Teresa and Stephanie are always the first to reach out and offer to help others, but the last to ask for help for themselves. These incredibly strong and loving women can use any help we can give them, whether monetary, words of encouragement, or through prayer.
