Bree has CANCER! If you read her Facebook timeline, she most recently explained what happened. After reading the first part of her message, you will see that Cancer and her recent TWO MAJOR surgeries is the bad news.
The good news is, THERE IS HOPE! Yes HOPE! The doctors are telling her, that it appears the procedures were SUCCESSFUL! Yeah Bree! However, being a cancer survivor myself, the road to recovery is not an easy one, and the stress of the cancer popping up again is ALWAYS omnipresent in the survivors mind; and sometimes it does come back. Thus, again stated, for now, things are looking positive!!!!! Bree has hope! In her mind however, she has no option but to fight. Why? Because she has three men that depend on her survival.
Bree is a fighter.
Bree is a winner.
Bree is one of the most beautiful and talented people I have EVER met. I am sure, if you are here in "gofundme" reading this, you agree!
Your being here, as you can guess, takes us to the other BAD NEWS.
Bree and her family of a husband and two children NEED MONEY, BIG MONEY! Bree is a very proud woman, that DOES NOT want a handout. She loves to help others, but, NEVER wants to burden anyone. That is why, I had to "virtually" twist her arm from Japan, to allow me to set up this "gofundme" campaign. Finally, because all of this, IS, and is going to be, too much to bare, she has agreed to this Friends, Family, Associates and ANYBODY/EVERYBODY to help her and her beautiful family out.
For years now, she has been fighting to give her son a chance at a normal life, despite the bills associated with constant seizures, medical appointments and therapies for the cute little guy in the above picture with her. She has been the major bread winner for her family because her awesome husband from Japan, needs to be with both children most all days. Therefore, imagine the cost of all that, and being out of work for over two months fighting LUNG Cancer, and hospitalization, surgery, follow-up care, MEDICINE and other long term bills....
Bree needs our help. She needs our help now!
I KNOW she has touched your life, and even more people that are NOT on Facebook. She needs your help to reach out to those people. Please, forget about Christmas Gifts or Birthday Gifts or Kid Gifts for the future to her and her kids. SHE NEEDS ALL OF THESE GIFTS: NOW!
I figure, if we can find FRIENDS, FAMILY & And so on, to do the following, we can reach our goal:
2 people x $500 = $1,000
5 people x $200 = $1,000
50 people x $100 = $5,000
100 people x $ 50 = $5,000
This will equal OUR goal of $12,000 which really IS NOT the full amount of money that she and her family needs. However, this WILL have a SIGNIFICANT impact towards this devastating setback.
Are the above goals realistic? I think NOT. I am not sure we can find 157 people for this campaign. However, if we can find more of you to donate at least $100 or $200, then, I think we have a realistic shot at our goal. Again, please forget about future gifts, IF you can fight, like she is fighting right now, this will have the greatest impact for what she needs NOW.
God bless all of you for reading this, and thinking how you can help Bree and her family. Although I just made the pitch for $500, $200, $100 and $50, please donate WHATEVER you can, even if it is under $50! All contributions are needed and totally APPRECIATED!
FIGHT ON BREE!
We Love You ------So Very Much!
