Hi, we are creating this GoFundMe page to help our loving niece Emily Ann Barbosa beat breast cancer.
Emily is a 39 year old mother with three young children ages 9-13. Those who are fortunate to have her in their life describe her as kind, compassionate, loving and the one who always lights up the room with her smile.
Emily has been diagnosed with breast cancer and is facing a mastectomy and the removal of three sentinal lymph nodes in the next few weeks. At this time we don't know whether she will require treatment with radiation or chemotherapy.
Her Doctors' estimate her recovery will be between 8-12 weeks. As a licensed massage therapist Emily will not be able to return to work any earlier.
While Emily is fortunate to have loving family and friends who are providing her the emotional and daily support she needs, she does not have have the benefit of paid time off, sick time or short term disability.
Her family and friends are hoping to raise $7,500 to help replace her lost income during this difficult time.
We gratefully appreciate your kindness in support of our loving family member. We will provide updates on Emily's fight to beat breast cancer.
