On 11/16/2020 I was diagnosed with triple negative bilateral breast cancer. (stage 3 of the left and Stage 2 of the right). Just before my own diagnosis I was helping my mom fight her journey from 8/2018 to 11/15/2019 which she survived. After doing the genetic testing in 2018 and finding out that I carried the gene BRCA-1, I am now fighting my own battle with breast cancer daily. This will be a long journey and my treatment consist of 16 Rounds of chemotherapy, Bilateral mastectomy and reconstructive surgery and radiation. I have already completed two rounds of chemotherapy and I can tell you it has been extremely hard in all ways. I am asking for donations to help cover the medical cost and other personal bills that is and will continue to build over time. I am also greatly appreciative of any type of support received. Currently I am not working and on leave but I don't have enough hours saved to cover my time away from work and since treatments side effects have been so bad for me I am unable to work from home. If possible I am also asking that any state workers for the state of North Carolina that would like to donate hours to me to help, please fill out the form below and send to the UNCG Human resources department. I truly appreciate all of your help and consideration.https://hrs.uncg.edu/wp-content/themes/uncgwp/Files/Leave_Management/VSL_Donor_Form.docx?nocache=1
