Breast Cancer Battle

My assistant, Courtney Curtis, at the young age of 28, is facing a battle that I would not wish on anyone - ever.  This is a bright young and vibrant woman with a courage that I cannot imagine.  She's been learning over the past several months following complaints of pain and battles with colds and coughs, that she has cancer and finally in the past week learned of the nature of this battle.  Following many tests and waiting, she's finally been diagnosed - it's stage 4 breast cancer.  She's learned that it's spread to her lungs and liver and I can only imagine that despite her upbeat nature, she's just not feeling too well.  She's still anticipating working with me and, bless her heart, wants to take the computer to her Chemo sessions.  Because she hasn't been with the company very long and because she's at the start of her career, there's not a lot of sick leave and vacation available and built up for her to be able to pay the bills that we know are only going to build and build.  Already its starting to worry for her.  I aim to try to take the pressure off and help her mentally continue the battle that I can only imagine is required to take a step each day.  We need her healthy and to give her hope that the cure is around the corner.  Please help.
