For Maggi & Alan to be with Tricia!

A diagnosis of cancer is earthshattering to anyone, and thats just what this young lady, Tricia Capella got this week....she is a newlywed starting out her new life with her husband and got hit with the news this week...Breast cancer that has metatasized into all surrounding areas. We all know that to fight this horrible disease a sound support team around her is crucial.  Ive started this GoFundMe so Tricia's Mom, Maggi & StepDad Alan, can move to be with her as she starts her battle.  Its more than a 1200 mile round trip. The following is from her Mom Maggi,  "The most recent scan  is not good.  There is way more involvement that originally thought or what we expected. To put it bluntly, this is about as bad as it gets. This is treatable but NOT CURABLE. Tricia will undergo a 90 day course of chemotherapy – first choice is Adriamycin and Cytoxan – termed “red devil” and is very harsh. A good response to this course of treatment is critical.
If you can help us financially, so I can be with her, at least at each chemo treatment, I would be eternally grateful – she wants her mama there and I will not get paid for the 2 days each week I am not at work.  Any amount helps to get us up there and back as well as pays wages I will not have which we need for rent etc. I no longer have any pride about not asking – I am begging…if you cannot help, please share this gofundme page and share it publicly so more people will see it.
This is the “impression” which is really what they think they are dealing with – the rest is all the stuff/location specific of what is going on: Left Breast malignancy with extensive metastatic lymphadenopathy left axilla, sub pectoral region, bilateral cervical chains (this is in the neck,) and numerous skeletal metastases as described, with probable left anterior chest wall soft tissue metastasis as well."
Anything that you can help with is appreciated so this precious family can be together during this time. Thank you!
