My name is Stephen Woodward, and I am a friend of Erika's and I created this campaign on her behalf. 

In November 2019, Erika's doctor told her the 3 dreaded words no one ever wants to hear...."YOU HAVE CANCER!"    The devastating news came after Erika went for her first ever routine mammogram, which was then followed by a breast ultrasound, diagnostic mammogram, MRI and breast biopsy.  What was suspected of being breast cancer, was finally confirmed when Erika received the results of her breast biopsy.

Over the next 2 months, Erika weighed her treatment options and found the best breast cancer treatment center and the right team of surgeons for her.

Erika's journey is only just beginning!!! On Feb 13, 2020, Erika will undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction.  The procedure will take 6 to 8 hours to perform, and following surgery, Erika will need numerous weeks to recover and will be unable to work during this time.  During Erika's recovery, medical expenses, and basic living expenses will continue to pile up. 

PLEASE LET'S COME TOGETHER TO HELP ERIKA,  by lessening her financial burden and let's allow her to focus her energy on her healing and recovery.

Please keep Erika in your thoughts and prayers as she travels on this journey and let's travel this journey along with her. Updates will be provided on this page after her surgery and during her recovery. 

Any and all donations would be a blessing and are greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to share this on your social media accounts to help spread the word and LET'S RALLY TOGETHER TO HELP ERIKA FIGHT BACK AGAINST BREAST CANCER!!!
