Fighting for Michi

$9,220 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 78 people in 12 months
My daughter in law , Michi,  is 35 and was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer while being 23 weeks pregnant. Prior to this, she had been on infertility medications for 3 years, then stopped and then 6 months later, she became pregnant spontaneously. She is now on her second round of chemotherapy. The first round required her to have Nulasta which is $600/dose, with insurance. She had 4 doses. Their medical insurance deductible begins again in 2018, most likely with more baby expenses and radiation therapy and surgery for Michi. They are living with me now as their house is unfit for her and the new baby. Please help. No donation is too small. I thank you in advance.  We love her so much and want to see her, her husband  and her daughter, Fiona, live a long, healthy and happy life.

Michi has left us for a better place. This happened on February 4. She fought like a warrior. She IS a warrior. This god-awful cancer attacked her entire body. We learned that this was an extremely rare type of of cancer and that it was extremely fast growing. Now, her four month old daughter has no mother. My son is a loving father who is devoted to his wife and now his daughter, but he can't do it alone. He spent the last 20 some days of her life, taking total care of her until HE no longer could. Then, she went to the hospital, first to ICU then palliative care and then to hospice. They were soulmates, I could see it in their eyes. And they always will be.

The need now is for funds for Fiona, her education. Also for outstanding medical bills, and leftover student loans.

If you have already given, we thank you and appreciate this immensely. If you have not, please find it in your heart to give to this little girl without a mother and a young husband without a wife.
