Erikha, now 30 years old, made the courageous decision to undergo preventative surgery to reduce her risk to baseline levels—surgical removal of most of her breast tissue, as well as her ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes. Her first surgery, a bilateral mastectomy, is scheduled for November 30th, 2017. Her insurance company is covering most of the costs—many thousands of dollars—but her deductible must be paid up front before she can undergo these potentially life-saving procedures. We both work full-time, but on such short notice we cannot afford this cost and the costs of her time away from work (6 weeks) out of pocket.
Thus we turn to you, our friends, friends of friends, and kind strangers, to ask for whatever help you can offer to pay these costs. We do not anticipate any help, but we are grateful beyond description for any money that we receive. Thank you!
