We Love You, Brenda

Brenda is a 4-year survivor of breast cancer.  But she will soon be a 2-time breast cancer survivor.  She was recently diagnosed with another recurrence of breast cancer, this time metasticized to other areas.  As cancer is never convenient, this hit as she was:  getting ready for a new class of first-graders to arrive; looking for a new place to live;  and preparing to welcome her 5th granddaughter.  She will soon begin her chemotherapy treatments, 6 in all.  However, she now only has 2 remaining days of paid leave.  Any time she needs to have off for chemo will then be without pay.  She has also incurred substantial bills due to her move.  These funds would be a tremendous help by allowing her to take off time to recover from each treatment, as well as help her recoup the expenses of the move.
Please help us help our dear, dear friend and dedicated teacher!
