Sylvia's Fight

As most of you know my beautiful, strong sister has fought for the past eight years against this horrible disease of metastatic breast cancer. She has went through hell and back with radiation to different parts of her body where the cancer has attacked and continues to do so. She has continually been on and off of chemo along with horrendous side effects. She is still fighting with everything she has to a fucking disease that just wont leave her body. She now has to endure another battle of having brain surgery to remove two tumors on her brain. She will most likely lose her sight in one eye, will no longer be able to drive and experience memory loss which hopefully will be minimal. She will be having surgery within two weeks since the one tumor is growing very quickly. She has insurance but has an out of pocket co-pay that has to be paid to the hospital. In her eight years of fighting we have never reached out asking for any help, but this is taking a toll on her and her children financially as the copays and prescriptions keep building. She has no idea that I have set this fund up and would kill me for doing this..lol. I have blocked her from this post on FB. I am hoping to reach the goal, but anything would greatly help. I would like to give her the funds when she leaves the hospital which will be one less thing for her to worry over. She will be hospitalized for about seven days. Please keep my hero in your prayers and that she has a successful surgery and a positive outcome. She is my hero and the bravest, strongest person I know and I wouldnt know what to do without. Thanks and god bless. Fuck Cancer!!
