Help Isabelle Beat Breast Cancer

Our sister, Isabelle is a mother of four who, 3 years ago, had survived a horrendous domestic abuse and violence in the hand of her husband of 16years which left her to cater for their 4 children as a single mother. Despite all difficulties, Isabelle has been passionate about raising her children well and supporting widows, orphans, and those in the greatest need through social work. Anyone who knows her would describe her as one of the warmest and generous people you will ever meet.

Earlier this year, Isabelle started having persistent headaches and some concerning chest pains, which the doctors could not adequately diagnose and treat. It wasn’t until she noticed a lump on her right breast that we started to worry, but the mammogram showed dense breasts, which Doctor said not to worry about. While we were somewhat relieved, she noticed that the lump in the breast was getting bigger and there was yet another lump in her right underarm. This became alarming, as we still needed to figure out what this was. After a repeated Mammogram, x-ray, and blood work, an ultrasound showed a malignant tumor. A subsequent biopsy confirmed what we feared — Stage 3 breast cancer that had spread to lymph nodes but not yet to the other organs in the body.

Isabelle’s shocking diagnosis has been devastating but more so, leaves her wondering what the fate of her children (10, 7, 4, and 2 years old) who all depend on her will be in this dire situation. To make matters worse, she was recently laid off from her job due to budget restrictions, leaving her family without health insurance. Isabelle has spent her entire life’s savings on doctors' appointments, labs, and providing for her children, all while trying to find steady employment to start off the actual treatment. Unfortunately, the fight is still not over.

We are asking for your help in ANY amount to urgently enable her to begin treatments, surgery, and childcare while she is away at hospitals, clinics and other follow up labs as the treatment progresses. The doctors have assured us that if treatment commences immediately and urgently, the chances of her survival are high. We also need as many PRAYERS and support as possible!

Every prayer, every dollar, every word of encouragement will bring Isabelle closer to winning this battle. We greatly appreciate your help! THANK YOU!
