Nessa's Boobs vs. BRCA2 - FIGHT!

So, in 2012, Vanessa (My Darling Wife, Mother of My Childs, Wearer of Hair Flowers) discovered she had the BRCA 2 Breast Cancer gene mutation. She's been on top of it, though loss of medical insurance for a while, along with having surprize twins, made it difficult until she recently got coverage again. 

And, in her most recent MRI, there was an anomoly. No, we're not 100% sure it's cancer, but given family history and other matters, it's time to take action to make sure it doesn't progress.

Surgeries are coming, along with recovery time, and we're still a single income family with a large deductable we need to cover to make it possible. Even though the surgeries haven't even been finalized, we're already racking up bills for MRIs, UltraSounds, and other testing.

And thus we need your help. In the coming weeks, we'll have the plan down, and then figure out the rest of the scenario for recovery, future surgeries, and more. It's a delicate time, and we can't manage to pay for it ourselves and still stay afloat. 6,500 is our out-of-pocket for the year, and that doesn't really address things like time-off and if we might need in-home care, but it's the start of the big changes that are afoot! When we went over the numbers, we realised juat how much it's gonna take.

So please, help save Nessa's TaTas!!!
