Linda's Fight

Early in October, our mother, Linda, experienced pain in her abdomen that she thought could only be related to gallstones. After a normal ultrasound and weeks of dietary changes, her symptoms didn't seem to dissipate. She underwent a CT scan, which showed a sizable mass in her pancreas. The biopsy confirmed our worst fears. Our mother was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer of the pancreas.

Processing this news, working through a schedule of rigorous treatment and medications, and maintaining hope has been a little bit easier than you'd imagine due to such an amazing outpouring of help, support, and encouragement from close family to acquaintances to those we've never even met! Every person wants to know how they can help. Because of this, we've created this page. Please feel free to help in anyway, big or small, to relieve the financial burdens we will encounter while we all fight along side our favorite fashionista.

In our entire lives, we've never seen anything stand in our mothers way. We are confident that with your help, her strength, sense of humor and distain for losing a fight, she will win this!
