I'm Elisa Bennett, wife to Jason Bennett, and mother to Ayla (11) and Seth(7). I was recently diagnosed with Triple Negative Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, an aggressive form of breast cancer. I begin 4 months of chemotherapy on October 30th, then surgery and radiation.
Although we are fortunate enough to have private health insurance through my husbands employer, it will not cover all of the medical costs. We have to reach our out of pocket maximum for this year and start over for next year as my treatment will be ongoing.
We need to get counseling for both of our children who have special needs and are having a difficult time coping with these big emotions. There will be many prescription and over the counter medical costs along with equipment costs. My husband is eligible for FMLA, but it is completely unpaid so he is unable to participate in my treatment without losing income that we depend on.
I have never been in a position to have to ask for money before and every single penny will be appreciated and used toward my fight.
