Erica Riedlin's cancer fight

Our daughter, Erica, just began her 3rd trimester of her pregnancy.  She is experiencing the many changes to her body that pregnancy causes.  This last Monday she saw her Dr.  Tuesday she had an ultrasound leading to a biopsy. Wednesday she got news that the biopsy was positive for breast cancer. Thursday she saw an Oncologist.  Friday she received her first of four rounds of chemotherapy.  Apparently she can receive chemo despite being pregnant. 
The months ahead will be trying to say the least.  She is grateful that she can still look forward to delivering her child in February. She is grateful this aggresive cancer was caught fairly early. She is grateful that because since it is a fast growing type of cancer it should rapidly respond to chemo.  She is grateful that she has the love and support of her family and friends.
Her baby should come in the middle of these chemo treatments.  One month after her last chemo round she will need to have surgery to remove her breast. 
Needless to say, amongst her gratitude  are many worries. Fatigue, nausea, pain and heartache as well as financial.
I am starting this fund for her as I can't control the physical hardships I hopefully can help lessen the financial ones.  The money raised through this site will be used for the many costs that will be coming her way. 
I feel if she doesn't have that burden that it will help ease one of her concerns.
Our family so appreciates the outpouring of love, prayers and support.  Many have asked "how can I help"?
If you would like to make a donation we would appreciate it.  Regardless, we hope to stay in your thoughts and prayers and together we will help her fight this battle in front of her.
