Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Ghita is a very dear friend of mine who I met over 5 years ago while getting a blow dry. Ghita has been working two jobs the past 3 years doing retail and hair. Once she got her medical insurance, she went for a mammogram. She went for the biopsy a three weeks ago and was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 weeks ago. She has to undergo surgery in the next few weeks which they will hopefully only have to remove a portion of her breast, but if there is more damage, they will need to remove the entire breast and do reconstruction. Her lumps are the size of golf balls and once they are removed, she won't be able to raise her arm to do hair. 
She will be out of work from 2 to 3 months and will have to do some radiation. 
Since this is happening very suddenly,  her jobs only pay if she is able to work, this will be a major financial set back for her. She will not even be able to pay her rent. Whatever we can raise for her will help with her living expenses and help her get to and from the hospital. She doesn't have any family in Chicago and will be reliant on friends to support her.
Thank you!!
Michele
