Help Kirsten Beat Breast Cancer

At just 37 years old Kirsten has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of  breast cancer. The news came as a shock and turned life as she knew it upside down for her and her family. Kirsten's one-year-old daughter had just started walking days before she received this devastating news. She was working as an ultrasound technician at Deborah Heart and Lung Center but had to terminate her employment due to the demanding nature of her treatment regimen.

Kirsten is determined to defeat this awful disease but has a long road ahead of her that involves months of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. On her worst days it is nearly impossible for her to care for her energetic little girl due to the overwhelming nausea and fatigue from her chemo treatments. Anyone who knows Kirsten knows that she has a great sense of humour and she is doing an amazing job of remaining positive...but not being able to care for her little girl has been very tough on her.

The exorbitant bills for treating this disease have already started to pile up and any help would be greatly appreciated. On behalf of the Johnston and Koovits families and all who know and love Kirsten, Jay, and their daughter, we thank you for your consideration and any donation you make to this fund.
