Tina Wright - Welborn is organizing this fundraiser.
Ok....so I’m not really good at revealing things that cause me ALOT of anxiety but now is the time ...in the past few months I have been given an option to go through what I like to call A HUGE change/surgery that is one of the most life changing obstacles that I’ve EVER endured in my life. In this moment I am the most vulnerable, seemingly weak, and very afraid person, yet otherwise the most strong people that my friends and family have EVER known! The doc in Seattle that initially performed my surgery to remove my breast tissue causing this rare breast disease has found some very alarming cells that can, and Will lead to breast cancer. And I need to have my breasts removed, YES, BOTH of them. So in my time of pure fear, and anxiety, I have to make this decision. And of course, I AM going through with it. Only thing is, I can’t go it alone. I wish I could just say hey guys, see you on the other side!!! But I can’t. I need help. I have 3 kids to take care of , bills to pay, and a HUGE PIECE Of PRIDE that gets in the way, because my grandpa always told me, “I Know I’ll never have to worry about you because you are Tina”! Well , in this case I have to suck up that pride and ask for help. I am making this account because I know what it’s going to take to get this procedure done and the length of time. I DO want reconstructive surgery because it was offered along with the initial surgery. All I am asking is for all of my family and friends to come together and support me, for I would do the same and would never ask for anything from anyone, EVER. My first initial appointment, which is just around the corner ,to find a surgeon, then on to the surgery, I am going to the best of the best, in Seattle. But I CANNOT afford the trips, missing work, etc.I will FOREVER be greatful! I don’t really know what is the right or wrong answer at this point, but I AM putting myself out there.
