Dear Friends,

Tragedy has struck again for my sister and her family.  She has lost her oldest daughter in a terrible accident where a cement truck ran her car over and killed her instantly.  She was a senior in high school at the time and headed to the University of Michigan to begin her undergraduate work.  She wanted to be a doctor.  My sister also lost her husband.  A very healthy man who never smoked or drank.  He was a doctor.  He was a leading member of his community and always tried to help others in any way he could.  He died of lung cancer.  Now, again, she and her remaining two children are facing a tragic moment.

I am requesting donations for my sister and her daughter who has recently been diagnosed with stage three breast cancer.  Dania is a twenty five year old, who has lead a very healthy lifestyle, recently found a lump on one of her breasts.  She immediately had it checked out and after a barrage of tests, she was told that the biopsy came back positive for cancer.  

She will begin treatment today.  Five month of chemo therapy ahead of her.   Every Friday for the next three months and every other Friday for the final two months she will poison her body in an effort to eradicate this deadly disease and hopefully have a chance at a normal life.  The treatment at this time will also include radiation and removal of at least one of her breasts.  This treatment plan could change as they progress with the treatment. 

The donations I am requesting are needed immediately as the costs of treatment keep piling up.  She does have health insurance, however, she has an extremely high deductible.  She and her mother with use the funds to help off set her costs for not only medical bills but other thing that will help her cope with the effects of the chemo.  For example, she may need wigs, microblading for her eyebrows, etc.  Also, her family lives far from her so they will need help with travel and lodging as they travel across the country to come help in supporting her during these next months ahead.  

If monetary donations are not possible, my sister and my nephew could also use help with temporary lodging near Austin, Texas and help with finding a job for my nephew near Austin as he has decided to move there to be with his sister.  

My sister's situation is becoming more dire as each day passes.  The bad news won't stop coming.  She is now facing the real possibility of losing her job as a school nurse in northeastern Indiana.  Her HR manager called her yesterday to let her know that after 10 more weeks of FMLA she will not be able to take time off to visit her daughter.  

My sister deserves better than this.  Life has not dealt her a good hand.  But she still perseveres.  She could have easily turned into a bitter person but she has not and cannot let negativity change her.  She has to stay strong but it is becoming more and more difficult and the bad news keeps mounting.  She knows what she has to do because she has been through it before but she needs your help.  PLEASE HELP HER TODAY.  Your donations will be greatly appreciated and will be used to help three very good people overcome this tragic event. 

Thank You in advance for you help.
