ERIKA'S FIGHT AGAINST BREAST CANCER

PLEASE HELP US IN SUPPORTING OUR GREAT FRIEND ERIKA!  THIS PAST MONDAY SHE WAS  DIAGNOSED WITH AGGRESSIVE STAGE 2 BREAST CANCER AND HAS A LONG ROAD OF RECOVERY AND MEDICAL BILLS AHEAD OF HER! ERIKA IS PREPARED TO FIGHT AND BEAT HER CANCER BUT THERE ARE MANY OTHER OBSTACLES CHALLENGING HER.  SHE HAS ALOT OF TESTS COMING UP TO PREPARE HER FOR HER CHEMO TREATMENT THAT WILL ROUGHLY TAKE  18-24 WEEKS.  

ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE SLEEPNESS NIGHTS, STRESS, WORRYING, PAIN AND SUFFERING AND AN OVERALL TERRIFYING AND SCARY EXPERIENCE SHE WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH.

ERIKA IS NOT ONLY A WONDERFUL PERSON AND A GREAT FRIEND TO US ALL BUT SHE IS A MOTHER, A DAUGHTER, A SISTER, A VOLUNTEER FIRE FIGHTER, A KCCO/DCCO CHARITY SUPPORTER AND HAS PARTICIPATED IN A TON OF BREAST CANCER CHARITY FUND RAISERS AND WALKS. 

EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS MEDICAL INSURANCE, IT WILL NOT COVER HER FULL TREATMENT PLAN AND ROAD TO RECOVERY. SHE WILL HAVE TO BE OFF OF WORK DURING HER TREATMENTS AND FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS.  THE ROAD TO RECOVERY WILL BE LONG TO SAY THE LEAST, BY EASING THE FINANCIAL BURDEN ERIKA CAN FOCUS ON HER SON AND HER GOAL TO BECOMING CANCER FREE. PLEASE DONATE AS MUCH OR A LITTLE AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN.

THANK YOU FROM HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY, WE GREATLY APPRECIATE ANYTHING YOU CAN TO HELP SUPPORT OUR FRIEND ERIKA! 

WE LOVE YOU,
#TEAMERIKA
