Fight Like a Girl

About 3 weeks ago, I found a lump in my breast. After a biopsy and a MRI, it was determined that I have Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I will need 20 weeks of chemotherapy, a lumpectomy, and 6 weeks of radiation. My mother has had breast cancer twice and my younger sister once. They both had a bi-lateral mastectomy. At this time, my doctor doesn't think I need that. I'm very hopeful.  My mom made it twice and my sister once.  I think I'm more stressed about being bald! Prayers are welcome.
 
I work at Amazon.  We work four 10-hour days.  I have great insurance.  I do have a co-insurance of $2,000.  I'll be able to work most of the time.  During chemo, I will probably only have to miss half a day on the day I get chemo because I'll have the next 3 days off.  During radiation, I will probably just need to leave like an hour early each day. After the lumpectomy I may have to miss a couple of days.  I will miss as little as I can.  Ten hour days and Amazon work are exhausting on a good day, but I'm going to try my best. I have never done this and hate asking for help, but I'll just need a little help to pay the co-insurance and help with the bills.  Any bit helps.  Thank you.
