Help support Rachel's fight!!!

I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC), breast cancer on August 22, 2017.  This journey has been extremly fast, emotional and a whirlwind.  On September 5th, 2017 I had a double masectomy on my breasts.  I will be starting an aggressive form of Chemotherapy on October 23, 2017.  With this diagnosis and treatment plan my family and I need to pay for insurance deductibles(for both 2017 and 2018 that each year are $6000), chemotherapy cooling caps, and medications.  In addition to these expenses I was not able to work for 6 weeks and with Chemotherapy I will not be able to work full time during the 5 month duration of my Chemotherapy.  I will likely need to miss around 2 days of work each week.  My Chemotherapy will include 4 rounds bi-weekly, then 12 rounds of a different form of Chemotherapy that will occur weekly.  Then after 30 days of healing from the Chemotherapy I will begin my final reconstruction of my breast implants.  This is hopefully going to be done on the first week of April 2018.   Any support would be greatly appreciated to assist me and my family financially during this very difficult time.  With faith, love, hope and strength I will get through this.  Thank you!!!
