Hey everyone my name is Brittany and I'm a single mom to my daughter Jayda. For those that don't know cancer has highly impacted my life since I was little.
Most of you know that my mom was diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and it became terminal in 2014 with her passing in 2017. She was the only women in her family to live a life past 50. Cancer sucks and I'm going to do everything in my power to stay here for Jayda.
On fourth of July weekend, I went to the hospital due to being in pain and very sick. There is where I was told I had cancer in my liver. I was shocked and honestly numb. A hundred doctor appointments, blood work, and tests followed. I now have to surgery to remove the larger tumors in my liver. During this time I will be hospitalized for 5 days minimum and be in recovery at home for 6 to 8 weeks to follow.
Due to getting covid twice, having an embolism radiation procedure to my liver, and my body going septic from the procedure back in February, unfortunately I am very limited to the amount of paid time I have off from my job.
I recently was promoted to an amazing job and my supervisor is trying so hard to work with me during this time but bills do not wait so I am trying to prepare for unpaid time off.
I do not know what my journey will look like after this procedure but regardless I'm going to fight.
These funds will be used to pay for basic bills like rent, car payment, electric, groceries, ect. when time is taken off due to my medical care. I do not have the amount of hours I would need for a paid time off. I know this journey is going to be hard but I'm going to stay positive.
Prayers and positive thoughts are so much appreciated during this time. Please share if you can.
