Three weeks ago I received the worst phone call of my life. My best friend had told me she was diagnosed with an advance case of Lymphoblastic Lymphoma Leukemia. Bridgit has been my best friend for over 20 years. She is my sister and my partner in navigating through life. She has been with me through childhood, the dredge teenage years, through marriage, birth and death. We continue to support each other every day. She is my everything.
There was no time to adjust to the news. The type of cancer she has, is acute adult t-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma leukemia, is aggressive and spreads quickly. It is already in her lymph nodes. Waiting on treatment could be fatal so she will immediately begin chemo on March 5th. In the span of these 3 weeks, Bridgit learned she would endure a rigorous Chemo plan. The plan will consist of each week she will receive 4 days of inpatient chemo, meaning she will have to stay in the hospital over night. She then will receive 2 days off to recover and on the third day will receive out patient chemo. This will occur every week for 6 months! She will be living in a hospital for 4 days out of the week. She will most likely be extremely sick for the next six months due to the extreme amount of Chemo she will be receiving. She will then receive 24 months of maintenance chemo after the 6 months.
I have never experienced such an overwhelming need to love, support and fight for someone. This is not normally the way I work, but this is an emergency and I need your help. Bridgit is 34 years old, has a loving husband, two young daughters, Mina and Kaia, and is fighting the battle of her life.Bridgit can no longer work and will need around the clock care to survive. Her husband Corey has a full time job and will need help taking care of Mina and Kaia. Your donation will help pay for the care she needs, for the hospital housing she must now live in, high co-pays and for the expensive cancer treatment drugs she will likely be on for the rest of her life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This is so personal to me. I am desperate to help in any way. If you can't donate, all I ask is that you say a few words of encouragement on her message board or pass it along to someone who it might resonate with our story.
