Hey everyone, it's Marica Hase. At the end of last year, I found out that I had breast cancer. We went to many doctors and finally made a decision of what to do. This month, I will get a bi-lateral mastectomy and reconstruction at the same time--it will be performed at the City of Hope Facility/Providence Hospital. I want to work in the industry again, so this seemed like the best option.
I will be out of work for 4 months plus the insurance doesn't cover everything. The $50k will cover all my related expenses, post-op, treatment and medicines. Plus, I might need chemo and radiation. If anything is left over, I will donate it to the City of Hope, who have helped save my life.
Please give what you can no matter how small. I love everyone in the industry and I feel like you're family. And, family helps family. Buusan says thank you.
