Toni's fight against Lymphoma

Toni Hudson-Santiago, 43 years old, was born and raised in Islip, NY. Married her husband, Chris Santiago, 13 years ago and moved to Lakeland, Fl in October 2002 where they are raising they're 2 beautiful children, Julia and Anthony.
In August of this year, Toni started experiencing pain in her upper left side. After many blood tests, CT scans and a bone marrow biopsy, it was discovered that she has stage 4 mantle cell lymphoma which has spread to the bone marrow. As of October 7, she will begin the first of 6 rounds of chemo which she is optimistic about. She is a fighter and will not bow down to this without a fight.
As if this isn't enough to worry about, she will not be able to work due to the fact that she works in a hospital ER and cannot be around the germs. On top of that, her husband has been out of work since February due to his own medical condition. He is currently looking for work but in this economy this is not an easy task.
This all has been a significant financial burden to them and are trying to persevere the best they can.
Please keep Toni and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
They appreciate each and everyone of you that are willing to help in any way possible.
