Brave for Bernadette

My Dear Friend Bernadette "Beans" Clarke recently received the devastating diagnosis of bilateral stage IV invasive ductal breast cancer with thoracic mets. This means that the cancer has spread to her spine. Bernadette is an amazing Woman, Mother, Friend and FIGHTER and intends to kick cancer's butt! She has an amazing team of Doctors caring for her in Richmond. She started chemo on August 24th, and will initially continue for 16 rounds. She tolerated her first round of chemo like a champ, but definitely felt the effects and battled major fatigue. She is scheduled to finish the initial chemo and then prepare for surgery in the January timeframe. Bernadette is a loyal and loving person, and if someone needs something or needs help, she jumps right in. Now she needs us to jump in and help! I am starting this campaign for her and her 2 kids Peyton and Eli to help with ongoing medical and household expenses. Please contribute anything you can! Every dollar adds up and can help this family of 3 during this difficult time. Thank you so much!
