Help Cecilia Beat Breast Cancer

**UPDATE** Next step, Surgery! My wife, Cecilia, 52, has been diagnosed with Stage 2, triple-negative breast cancer (7/23/18). Thank God that they caught it as early as they did but now begins the long journey of beating this disease. So far her treatment plan is going to start off with Chemotherapy, followed by surgery (lumpectomy) and finishing with radiation. We are just starting this battle and already we feel like we are drowning in debt. We moved to Florida a year ago and are still trying to settle in. We don't really know anyone here and sometimes we feel alone. Yes, it was our choice to move but it was a great opportunity that we could not pass up. Who wouldn't want to live in the sun? Cecilia has a great support system but with all of this news happening so fast it is taking toll on her. Not to mention, she lost her job 08/17/2018.  We have read things about the "C" word and have heard other people's experiences and topics that keep popping up are "finances" and "exhaustion" and sometimes together. We don't make a lot of money and we are financially dependent on the income that we have, however we were not anticipating the situation that we have now been dealt. I do not work outside of the home as I am struggling to get on disability due to a back injury from work and I am not sure how much of the physical tasks that need to be done, I can do.  The financial, emotional and physical burden that comes with trying to beat this disease is going to be a challenge. My wife is the most self-less, caring, brave and hard working person I know. She would never ask for help for this, that is why I am the one trying to help. **UPDATE** Emergency SS has run out (2/2019), no income until a decision has been made. Once the food starts drying up (we get $15 a month in food assistance), and the every day essentials need to be replaced that $ goes quick. Now we have to figure Bill's and rent going forward. If you are able to donate, please consider contributing to Cecilia's fight! Any amount helps and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless! #HELPCECILIA
