Tamika's Fight vs Breast Cancer

Hi.  My name is Oxallys and I’ve known Tamika for almost 2 years when we started together on the railroad in March 2016. Although we haven’t been on the railroad long, we were warmly welcomed by everyone & I believe that we are family. I mean other than home, nowhere do we spend more time.

Let me paint a picture of a daughter, a sister, a friend and co-worker – Tamika Riddick. A woman who is so full of life and exudes so much positivity that every day I am floored by her spirit. She is a woman who has not for a second stopped being a warm, loving and caring person to those that cross paths with her.

In June 2017, Tamika noticed a lump on her breast & immediately scheduled a doctor’s appointment. After a series of tests, the world as she knew it changed in July 2017 when Tamika was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer.  Since then, she has hit the ground running and hasn’t missed a beat.  Needless to say, the journey ahead will be nothing short of a battle which her family and friends are 100% certain Tamika will overcome.  

Everyone knows how important it is to be surrounded by a strong support system of friends and loved ones. As is the nature of this diagnosis, Tamika needed to act rapidly, requiring countless doctor visits, procedures, and medications and is already out of sick days. Thus far, she’s had over 20 doctor appointments for chemotherapy, follow up visits and injections. These costs have added up quickly and we are trying to reduce the financial stress so Tamika can focus on what is important - kicking cancer’s ass!!!

This is where we come in - all donations received will directly support Tamika and her cancer journey. Every dollar counts! Whether it be medical bills, medication, lost wages, or any other variables that will come into play in the next several months, anything and everything helps! 

Help spread the word!
