Many of you may know Tiffany or are at least familiar with her. I happen to be the lucky man who gets to marry her. She is by far the strongest and most inpiring woman I've ever met.
In December of 2016 she found a lump in her breast (a week before Christmas). She was diagnosed with breast cancer in January and started chemo in February. She is a single mother who works full time. She is also the president of a non-profit group in Texoma offering support for families of autism in Texoma (F.A.S.T.). She has spent so much of her life helping and inspiring people through her journeys including her current battle with cancer. She has asked for very little help, and has continued to work full time through 16 chemo treatments over the past 19 weeks. Luckily, most of the medical for this has been covered by insurance so far, but there are several things not covered. The surgeries will be starting soon, and she may not be able to work full time through much of that and she has already lost her extra income from coaching. There will be 3 surgeries in all (mastectomy, reconstruction, and ovary removal), and these will require time off work for recovery. (You know Tiffany will take as minimal time possible, but I would really like the cushion to be there if she needs it to heal properly). This means she will need some extra support from us to help pay bills and food. She works for a small company she loves, but we can't expect them to provide her full salary if she needs extra time off.
Anything you would be able to give would be greatly appreciated.
