We are updating this campaign to travel/adventure, because that is what is needed right now for mind and body healing!
Tiffany has undergone a mastectomy, completed radiation, and is still receiving chemotherapy. On May 3, 2019 her oncologist requested that she meet with a specialist in Portland to discuss immunotherapy. While Tiffany's cancer is considered "stable", she will never be cured. She will battle this aggressive cancer for the rest of her life.
To those that know Tiffany, know that she puts everyone else before herself. It is now our turn to put her FIRST! I would like to team up and raise as much money as possible so Tiffany can compete her bucket list. I know I foresee a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert in our near future! ;)
If you can spare a few moments and a few dollars, please donate to the most deserving woman I know! Let's make these trips happen!
Thank you from our entire family!
On June 6th, 2018 Tiffany Graversen was diagnosed with stage 4 triple negative breast cancer. Triple negative breast cancer can be more aggressive and difficult to treat. Her diagnosis sent her to St. Luke's in Boise, where she remained for a week. During that week she had several CT scans performed, a PIC line placed, many blood tests, and her first round of chemo. She was released with a regimen of chemo treatments every two weeks. She completed her first round of treatments and was supposed to begin a new regimen of chemo weekly for twelve weeks. From the beginning Tiffany has struggled with her white blood count. It became exceptionally low after dealing with an infection that led to two iv antibiotics and one oral antibiotic for over a week. While her white blood count has improved, on occasion, it is not high enough to receive chemo treatments at this time. Tiffany will receive daily injections for one week in hopes to increase her white blood count to continue treatment. Surgery is discussed often, but the oncologist would like to prolong surgery to continue with as much chemo as possible. They aren't just dealing with the breast cancer, they are also dealing with spots on one of her lungs and in her lymph nodes. If her white blood count does not increase, they will move forward with surgery.
At this time, Tiffany's case is being reviewed by the Oncology Board at St. Luke's.
Her diagnosis was devastating. A 36-year-old woman in the prime of her life, now fighting for it. However, if you know Tiffany, you know she has handled this with grace, joy, and her faith in the Lord.
My hope for my sister and her family is to have financial peace of mind, so they can focus on life saving treatments.
Tiffany is unable to work, which reduces their total monthly income by $1,300, plus added insurance costs. Their out of pocket maximum is $6,000 per year, and their cycle just rolled over in August.
Our entire family extends the sincerest thank you to all that have prayed for Tiffany and our family. Please keep those prayers coming!
Please know any donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated.
