Kicking cancer with Leslie

Leslie Cole Ellis is fighting cancer at 37. We are trying to help her with what can often be large medical bills, even after insurance. She is a fighter. Proof of this is her own message to her friends when she found out she had cancer: 

Cancer - Warning, the following contains medical talk along with some curse words. The big "C" has hit the Ellis household. Apparently, my breasts are trying to kill me. There are lots of reasons not to tell people about this, and lots of reasons to tell people. Telling people won here because my husband and child are going to need support from our friends and family. Cancer is an asshole, but it's not nearly as big an asshole as some of the illnesses my friends and family have had to deal with so far (MS, cystic fibrosis, etc.) Cancer won't win. If I can fight half as hard as these people have, cancer is going to catch hell from this chick. I have invasive ductile carcinoma, and it is aggressive. I will have a port put in, then chemotherapy. Sometime in the future I have bilateral mastectomy and then sometime after, I have reconstructive surgery. I don't have many more details. It is not necessarily a thing to joke about, but that's who I am. So I'm looking on the bright side. I should lose weight and fit in clothes I already own. I will get a tummy tuck when they take the skin for reconstructive surgery, and I will have a very nice replacement set for the pair that tried to kill me. So, I will be a zillion times better and stronger when it's all over. Please send prayers to the household. Tripp is so young to have his mommy be sick. I need strength so that he won't be negatively impacted by my fight. Donnie is going to need y'all to take him out for a drink, or relieve him for kid watch, or just let him vent when he is trying to be strong for me. I have the greatest group of friends, and I know that we will all be stronger when this is done. I am ready for the day that I'm wearing the "survivor" shirt to a Believe meeting with my friend Nay. 

As as you can see, she first asks for help for others, and always has. Please help if you can. Anything is appreciated.
