Life Challenge Cancer Diagnosis

This is difficult.  Every aspect of my current life challenge is difficult.  I have been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time after being able to call  myself a cancer survivor for 10 years.  Tests and procedures are still being done to determine if the cancer has spread past my breast with a hip bone biopsy scheduled for December 6th.  Once the results are conclusive, a treatment plan including surgery and radiation will occur.  Hopefully, I  will not be needing chemotherapy again-as I am not sure I can go through that again.  I will be unable to work for an extended period of time and, as such, my ability to support myself and my family is going to be negativley affected.  My current slew of appointments and extreme exhaustion have already negatively affected my ability to work and I am already being financially affected by this.

Any funds that are generously donated will be used to pay house/living; farm ,medical expenses.

I will also be reaching out for various support throughout this life challenge.  Asking for help is so difficult....but I must or risk losing all I have lived and worked for.

I am scared and angry and sad and a host of other emotions roll through me on a daily basis.  I know I need to focus on diagnosis and treatment and healing but I cannot do this with the threat of losing everything constantly on my mind and in my heart and soul.

I would like to offer those who feel they can offer support  through monetary donation an offer to come to Jovita Farm and be involved in Equine Education and Education at a later date; when I am once again healthy and strong in mind, body,heart and soul.

I thank you from the very entirety of my heart.  I always offer as words to live by :  "I choose Joy".  Right now, that is a difficult sentiment to live by...

Thank you!
