I was recently diagnosed with grade 2 invasive ductal carcinoma. I've been going back and forth for tests the past three weeks to Chattanooga. I've been taken off work, at least for a while. I'm hoping once treatments begin that I can resume working. I've had the same job well over ten years and I miss it. All of the copays and prescriptions are adding up very quickly, along with the frequent trips. My income has completely stopped. I do not like handouts, so this has been hard to ask for your help. I will definitely pay it forward. I'm trying to get the car as reliable as possible for these frequent trips, as well as keeping my part of the bills paid. If you are unable to donate, I completely understand. Prayers are the most important thing. I will be having a port placed asap and will tentatively start treatment next Friday. Thank you for your prayers and help I've gotten so far. I have got to get in there and fight this. I have grandchildren that I want to watch grow up. And my family needs me here. I will keep everybody updated here.
