Desiree Vinyard's Breast Cancer Fund

On November 8, 2017, my very dear friend, Desiree Vinyard, was diagnosed with stage 1 (possible stage 2) ductal carcinoma triple negative breast cancer.  Since her initial diagnosis she has seen multiple doctors and though it is believed that the cancer was caught early, it is an aggressive cancer with an even more aggressive treatment. Until the surgery is completed we won’t know if it has entered her lymphatic system. Her surgery is scheduled for December 6th to insert her chemo port and complete a double mastectomy.
 
With the support of Jeff, her amazing husband of 13 years, and her two children, Jazmine and Ty, Desiree has all she needs at home to care for her. However, as many of you know, their family is a 2-income household and with Desiree looking at a long road to recovery, her cancer diagnosis could soon place a big hardship for the family. Since her cancer is an aggressive one, she is facing about 5 months of chemo and the possibility of 30 radiation treatments after the chemo is completed. In order to take the time she needs to heal, Desiree will have to take a lot of time off from work. Add to that all the medical expenses that have already started rolling in and it creates so much hardship for her and her small family.

Des has never asked for help from anyone. If you know Des, you know I had to twist her arm to get her to agree to this page in her honor because she would never ask for help herself. In fact, she and her husband both shied away from asking for help. But Desiree has always been to first to give help along with kind words or a hug or whatever someone needed. To give her the time she needs to heal and recuperate from what could be multiple surgeries and months of treatment, I am asking that everyone consider donating to help someone so deserving of a little kindness.

All the funds raised will go  towards medical expenses as well as household expenses during the course of Desiree's treatment.
