Kristi Wagner Cancer Fund

This past fall Kristi went in for a routine doctors visit and learned that she had breast cancer. As you can imagine this came as a huge shock. We see and hear of people our age with cancer but at the same time you still think this cant or wont happen to you.They had recently relocated to Myrtle Beach because of a new job she took and bought a home. The doctors began aggressive chemo treatments in December and she was unable to work during this time.  Because treatments started at the end of the calendar year they were hit with two high insurance deductibles back to back. To make a terrible situation worse, the company Kristi works for ran into financial hardships and laid off many of its Myrtle based workers-including her- without notice in February.
This meant scrambling to get on her husbands policy, being hit with a THIRD high deductible and also wondering and worrying about not only her health but where she will find employment when this all ends. She has seven treatments to go and then radiation and surgery. 
I started the GoFundMe so that she could build up a little nest egg to help with her medical bills and household bills. The less she has to worry about all these things, the more she can rest and focus on her health.
We all know Kristi. She is brave. She is tough and proud. Please help her and her family during this terrible time.
