Help Tacoa Byrd fight Breast Cancer

Hi, I'm Tacoa, and I just want to thank you all for your love and support.  I have been diagnosed with breast cancer since November 2015.  I am scheduled for another surgery on Monday, 9/25.   My final day at Trader Joe's will be this Sunday as I found out a few days ago that the corporate office made the decision to replace me.  That was quite a hurtful blow, on top of everything else I am facing.

I am nervous and I'm overwhelmed with the unknown...because I am scared...I don't know if I'm going to make it through.  I don't know if I am going to be able to  take care of my basic needs.
 
I thank you all who are willing and able to donate to this fund with my deepest gratitude.  I truly appreciate you. I just want to live...I want to be here for my kids.  But I don't want to have to put my young kids through any more than they're already dealing with.  They lost their Dad, my husband,  last year.

And I'm not intending on going anywhere any time soon, but I am pleading for your help.  I never thought I would have to ask anyone for help, but being that I am the sole provider for my family... I am... so I am asking if  you could  please donate to this fund on behalf of me and my children, we would definitely greatly appreciate it.
 I thank you so much.  God bless you all. And most importantly, if you all could  just continue to lift me up and my children in your prayers and pray that I have a full recovery.  And I thank you so much for all that you have done.  Any donation - no matter how big or small - would be greatly appreciated.  

Thank you and may God bless.
