Help Me Fight Breast Cancer

My name is Shela Smith Young,
I have been employed by Chick-Fil-A for around 18 years in the Callaway FL. area. I found out this January that I not only have 1 but 2 different types of breast cancer. On the right side it is Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with lymph node involvement. On the left side, Ductal In Situ Carcinoma. The surgeon wants to perform a double mastectomy.

The plan of attack; The Oncologist wants to do chemo first followed by surgery followed by radiation, too catch anything that may have been to small for any of the tests to see.

The funds are needed as quick as we can get them to help us. My husband Walt has been out of work for over 5 months on workers comp after injuring his shoulder/surgery. I do not know for sure how much work I will miss myself because of this fight.

Yes, we do have insurance but there is so much that's not covered and even more that don't even except our insurance policy (coverage).

To my understanding this will be a very long battle for me and my family and while setting this up, they wanted an amount or a goal to go for so I chose the 25k not truly knowing if it's enough or too much.

A local area hospital has already threatened to start rescheduling appointments if we cannot come up with hundreds of dollars at the time of each service being rendered for that particular service or day. Meanwhile the cancer grows, my faith in God is strong and I have to believe, by His stripes, I am healed!

Walt is also setting up an account @          we will put out updates on these two sites to keep you informed on what is going on and how the money is being spent!

Thank you so much for helping me and my family,
Your Sister in Christ Jesus,
Shela Young
