In December of 2017 my sister Alicia Parsons was diagnosed with Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma. The tumors were ER positive, PR positive and HER2 positive. This has turned her world upside down. She has gone from the chipper and happy strong woman that I know and love, to an even stronger fighter determined to beat this obstacle.
Sadly along with this diagnosis come’s emotional and medical treatment. Although, insurance does cover portions of what Alicia will have to be taking on after her surgery/s it is expensive to afford getting her back to her old self again. As a family we will do everything we can to ensure we help her to the best of our ability. However she needs love, peace of mind and the generosity of others to be able to make it through.
With surgery/s, recovery, treatments and emotional wellbeing we have estimated that the total out of pocket expenses to be over $35,000.00 for now which could increase - this is extra stress Alicia will face putting a huge strain on her, her family and friends. We are asking for any donations that can be made to aid in her recovery and we thank and appreciate any contribution no matter how big or small.
