Barb Cancer Fund

On August 9th, 2018, our mother Barb Greene was admitted to United Hospital for sudden onset back spasms. After many tests including MRI, CT scans, echocardiogram, blood tests, and a bone biopsy the doctors found breast cancer that has spread to her liver, hips, and spine. At this time, the fractured disc in her back is believed to have been caused by the cancer in her bone. More tests are required to determine how advanced the cancer is.

Barb was released from the hospital on August 17th. She has a back brace to alleviate the pain from the fractured disc. Her team of doctors at United have recommended radiation and chemotherapy.

As many of you may know, Barb is a hair stylist and has been self-employed for many years. Last week, she made the difficult decision to step away indefinitely from her career. Her husband Leroy is currently taking FMLA for one month at a reduced pay to assist her with her medical needs.

We (Kirsten, Kelcy, and Marta) are seeking to help them ease the stress of mounting bills. Please consider donating and sharing this GoFundMe.

We will post updates as we learn more. Please contact Kirsten at [email redacted] and Kelcy at [email redacted] if you have any questions. If you live close to South Saint Paul and enjoy gardening, Barb would love for someone to come and take care of her flowers since her daughters did not inherit her green thumb. You can send well wishes to Barb at [email redacted]. Respectfully she asks for no visitors at this time.
