Beating Breast Cancer

Hi everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read our story. My name is Kylee, and I am the niece of a beautiful, strong woman, Eileen. Years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through extensive treatment, and has been cancer free. Until recently. She had been having a lot of pain in her back that her doctors couldn't figure out. And in November 2014, she was sucker punched with devastating news. Her breast cancer has returned, and has metastisized into her bones. And to worsen the blow, her insurance is fighting paying for any treatment. 
I haven't been the best niece.  I lost contact with my aunt for years, when our family moved away from Colorado, to Washington. Last year, I reconnected with her, and my Colorado family. She is an amazing aunt, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother! She is the kind of lady that would give you the shirt off of her back if you needed it. And this hurts me..knowing this cancer is hanging over her head, since she can't afford treatment. We can't lose my aunt now. Not yet. She has kids that need her..sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, her husband..and me. If I could trade places with this amazing woman, I would. So I am here asking please donate, any amount helps, to her cancer treatment, and take a stand against cancer. Because F*ck cancer.
