Vivian's Win! Stage 3 to Cancer Free

My best friend, Vivian, of 22 years has recently been diagnosed with Stage 3 HER2 negative breast cancer. What started as a lump in her breast became a barrage of tests, oncologists, surgeons, and treatment plans. It has been a whirlwind of uncertainty and fear for her and her family since that first mammogram. Although diagnosed only a couple weeks ago, Vivian begins chemotherapy on Tuesday. She is an amazing mother, friend, daughter, sister, and aunt who is trying her best to remain positive and hopeful as she prepares for the biggest fight of her life. After 3 rounds of chemotherapy, Vivan will have a mastectomy, additional chemotherapy, radiation, all to be followed by a hysterectomy. Vivian would never ask anyone for anything. She is always that strong, loving woman who does for others. This time, it's my friend who needs the help. Most of Vivian's appointments are 3 hours from home. She needs assistance purchasing a cold cap to use during the chemotherapy treatments, medication costs, household bills, and additional expenses. Please help my friend with her fight against breast cancer.
