Amanda is 37 years old with breast cancer. She is a wife and mother of 4 young children ranging in ages 2 to 15 years old. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy that will be followed up with radiation. Amanda is out of personal paid days and her sick days. She works a week and takes a week to recover from her chemotherapy. Medical bills are mounting and the holiday season is upon her.
Amanda is a very hard-working, giving, strong, and compassionate young woman. She has been a hospice nurse for years and her patients and their families love her for the exceptional care she gives their family.
Despite all that she is going through, fear of leaving her children without a mom, not always having the energy to do for her family as she is used to, she keeps doing all she can. The guilt of the financial hardship can be heavy at times for anyone and in her health it can be paralyzing. She works as many hours as possible in an attempt to lighten the load on her husband and provide for her family.
Through all of this she maintains a positive attitude and is amazing to work with. She is always putting on a brave face for us and can be heard laughing in our office, giving us strength and being such an inspiration!
Help her in her time of need by giving what you can. She is always there for strangers, family and friends. It is her turn to be supported and cared for.
