Carrie's Time off of Work Fund

In January of 2016 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer for the third time in ten years. After six weeks of chemo, seven weeks of radiation, and surgery to remove the offending tumors, I find myself here today recovering from my third reconstructive surgery. I have exhausted all of my "vacation days" and what little savings I had accumulated is long depleted- making up for all the days I could not work because of stupid cancer. My reconstructive surgery requires a week off of work (actually two, but you know me) and means no income for a week.  Being able to raise these funds will take a lot of worry off my mind and help expedite the healing process, emotional and physical. Right now the biggest worry besides stupid Cancer is just making sure I can pay my mortgage in August. Anyone who knows me understands how difficult it is for me to come here and ask for help.
