Help Violet kick cancer's ass

If anyone knows Violet, you might know her as your favorite waitress at Village Pizza, a spitfire, an independent woman with sass, who isn't afraid to tell anyone what she thinks. Who also has a kind heart, and loves to be surrounded by people.

Unfortunately she was diagnosed with Endometrial Serous Carcinoma (Uterine cancer) last year, and has already gone through 3 surgeries and chemo. This type of cancer is very aggressive, and spreads quickly. She has maintained a very positive outlook throughout this journey, but some new findings have all of us worried.

A routine cat scan showed a small growth in the same area her previous surgery was. Some testing confirmed that her cancer came back, and it was only 9 months since her last treatment. So, here we go again, another surgery, more chemo treatments.

But this time is different. Insurance coverage is limited because of expenses from the last treatment. She hasn't worked since she was first diagnosed, and out of pocket expenses are outrageous at this point.

She will need immune system booster shots during her treatments, which are $5,000 EACH!

I know several of you will want to text, call or message her because most of you had no idea what she has been going through. But PLEASE don't be offended if she doesn't respond. She's very overwhelmed with the new diagnosis, and is trying to keep herself busy with more positive things ❤
