I have started this GoFundMe page for an amazing young woman. I met this woman about 5 years ago when she was going through her cancer journey where she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. She belong to a band called Sugar TIts because she was a fighter of Breast Cancer they later changed the name of the band to Sugar Tease. She fought it and she thought she won. Sadly when she went back to the dr about a year later her cancer came back and it attaced her other parts of her body. She has been fighting strong this whole time because she has everything in this world to live for. She has 4 beautiful children 3 of which are daughters and 1 son. She has an amazing loving caring husband who she met after her cancer journey had begun. Sadly she has gone to the dr just recently and she has now started the process to meet with her attorneys and all she wants to make sure of is that her beautiful children are taken care of and that her husband is also. She never asked for this and neither did her children. I ask that you donate whatever you can and each and every penny will add up for them. She has done every option possible and every opportunity the OHSU to help fight this horrible thing we call cancer. Yes CANCER SUCKS!! Christine has done everything in her power to fight fight fight she has never given up and she is not giving up now either. But sometimes we do not make our journeys sometimes they decide for us. So with this being said if you have never met an unselfish person in your life well let me tell you this woman is her! I went through some medical problems myself and what did this young lady do. She reached out to me and did not talk to me about her Cancer battle but she said she was worried about me.. Not only has she done this for me but for so many others too. I remember her mother telling me about a story that she did in high school. Where she was there holding a young girl when she was in high school after she killed herself. She stayed there with her until she took her last breath. Her picture on this page is as follows Blowing kisses from the Knight Cancer Institute while waiting for my PET scan... XO❤ P.S. Thank you Lori (Lisa-Marie Brackney) for insisting that I go to OHSU!! The difference is night and day! So much happier...
Here is her most recent post on Facebook:
As promised, here is some of what we learned today at the Dr. Please don't hate me or be offended that I've copy and pasted a message that I've sent via text to my closest friends... It's just a lot of typing and I've been overwhelmed, grateful and appreciative at all of your responses and it is my intention to respond to everyone. If it takes a while then it takes a while but I will respond.
Thank you for all your love and support, prayers, encouragement, etc. You mean everything to me and without you, I have no purpose or reason to exist. I leave everything in God's hands. With that said, here is my message to all of you:
Hey Love!!! I just woke up and I am waiting for my pain pills to kick in. I am ok. A little disappointed, but ok. The stem cell transplant would have cured it, I'm almost 99% sure. He said it wasn't an option anymore because my immune system has been pretty much obliterated by everything else. There are still options. A few. But still there, nonetheless. My spirit is strong and my heart is pure. I have forgiven everyone who has ever hurt me. I have let go of many, many things. I am NOT giving up -- even when there is "nothing" left, there is still something...
I am making an appointment with the attorney that works with women in my situation to get all my legal and medical things in order. I am getting my house in order and I plan to continue living as though nothing has changed.
I still have yet to hear back from places I've submitted to for acting, and just like the first time, when I was in the band LLD with Rob, I never missed a show, practice, recording session, etc. except for the one show at Mississippi Studios because I was in that accident that totaled my car while I was en route to the show. I probably still would have gone, but my mother insisted that I go to the ER to ensure my newly placed port that goes right into my heart didn't get jacked up by the seatbelt.
I have been overwhelmed by the amount of love, support, care, concern, information, emojis and attention and affection that people have been pouring out to me -- some people have really sent some very loving and moving messages and I have been crying and giggling simultaneously throughout the day just catching up a little.
Please don't hate me or think I am minimizing my love for you, it's just a lot to type to all of the people who have reached out to me and I want to respond to each and every person who comments...
My first priority is spending time with the kids and Rob and close friends and family as much as I can, for as long as I can. I would like to get back to Nebraska, Iowa, Florida (family there and maybe Disney's Epcot Center), Missouri, Austin, Seattle, Tennessee and a couple of other places -- obviously to see you and love on you for as long as possible. And not to say goodbye, but just in case... It never rains when you take an umbrella, right?!?
Ok, again, I am sorry for the novel and I want you to know how much you have impacted my life, made me a much better person, and all that you have done and continue to do and let you know how proud of you I am. I am still committed to our band, music, acting, etc., and you and all the kids. That will never change. Ever. The timeline might be different, but nothing else will change.
As always, I love you, I miss you and I hope to be visiting you soon. I will need Rob to come with me and maybe even the kids if it doesn't take them away from school or cost too much. In the meantime, I am holding you close to my heart, in my thoughts, mind and prayers. I love you. So very much. Talk soon. XOXO ❤ NEVER GIVE UP!
As you can see she is 100% the most amazing woman I have ever met. I love this woman with all my heart. I ask that you dig down deep and help her fulfill what she wants more than anything is to be able to make sure her kids are taken care of to take her beautiful kids on a family trip. If you can donate 50 cents or $1 or whatever you can donate please help this amazing young lady.
