Cancer SUX! Tiffany's Medical Fund

I am starting this fund on behalf of my sister, Tiffany, who, for those of us who are blessed to know her, has undergone the fight of her life these past couple of years.  In January 2013, she was diagnosed with IDC (invasive ductal carcinoma), which is a form of breast cancer.  This came as a shock to us all, as breast cancer does not run in our family. From the day of her diagnosis, and even up until now, she has continued to be one of the most positive people I have ever known. She has been through MANY rounds of radiation and chemo, and it seemed as if she was on her road to recovery. But as we were to find out, this was just the beginning of her fight. Five surgeries later (and more to come) and recurrent issues with wound healing has now resulted in more doctors appointments, more time away from work, and more treatments (including hyperbaric oxygen treatments).  During a time when many people would have lost hope and given up, Tiff has continued to fight with everything she has in her.

Tiffany, 41,  is the mother to 4 kids, the youngest one being 5, and is also a pediatric nurse. As a result of all the unexpected complications that have come up over the past year, she has had to lose hours from work and has depleted all of her vacation time in order to make it to the treatments, appointments, ect. Often times, she has mutliple treatments scheduled in a days time, while balancing the role of mom and wife. 

My family and I have started this fund to help her with the bills that have accumulated since her diagnosis, and I cant think of a person more deserving than her for such help. I often wonder why do bad things happen to good people, but then I also believe that God doesnt give us anything  we cant handle.  Im hoping that the $ raised through this page will take away some of the financial burden for her so that she can continue to get the treatment  she needs. Thank you in advance for your support. My family and I appreciate it, and we are all praying for her recovery. We love you, Tiff!!! Keep fighting!! #CancerSucks
