Carla Can Kick It- Cancer That Is

My sister in law, Carla, told us she had cancer this past May. Lymphoma. She was so calm and positive that I really didn't believe her. It's not something you would ever joke about, but it was just so surreal. I was at a loss for words. What do you say to a person when you've never been in those shoes? Thing was... I didn't have to say anything because she was talking about her plans. She was positive and upbeat, never waivering or asking for pity. She was going to kick it! What a courageous woman. An inspiration to admire. I love Carla. She's an amazing, single mother to a beautiful, 12 year old girl. She works with disabled children that range from having autism to behavioral disorders. She is selfless and always willing to help her family and friends. Carla has not only continued to work at times to support her family, but she is doing so to pay for all her radiation treatments on top of finishing her Master's degree. Her treatments are very expensive and at this point she has had 5 with her 6th one coming in a couple weeks. Carla would never ask for help, but I know that she is stressed. Stress is never good for your body, and on top of radiation treatments attacking the lymphoma, I want to help her in any way that I can. Please help me donate any little bit that you can.  This phenomenal woman needs help to relieve some financial stress and get her feet back on the ground so she can kick this lymphoma out of her life for good! Anything helps. Love and many thanks!!! 33678252_1539317459947239_r.jpeg
