Cancer Recovery Fund for Terra

Terra has been overwhelmed by the support from family and friends after sharing her cancer diagnosis. (Which was not easy to share.)

After getting laid off from her last job and finding out the diagnosis the same week that she started her new job; she is left without any paid time off as she undergoes treatment with surgery. (She found out about a month ago.)

A lot of people have reached out to see what she needs, and some financial support would help her focus on her recovery instead of rushing to get back to work. She is also concerned with medical expenses. 

Although Terra is independent and says that “asking for support hurts her pride” (gotta love her); she knows that now is the time to lean on others.

Terra also says “I’m feeling quite vulnerable just by sharing my diagnosis.  I’m a private person and very independent. Maybe sharing my story will not only help me, but maybe it will help others realize that they don’t have to go through things alone. I am realizing that I can be strong and ask for help at the same time. I’m staying positive (and a little scared) and I’m coming back better than ever. Love to you all.”

Terra has surgery this month and she says that we’re celebrating after she recovers.  We're hoping for a good prognosis after surgery.

How you can help: 
Donate to help Terra with typical expenses as well as medical expenses while she is recovering from surgery.
