Help Jacklyn fight Breast Cancer

$15,860 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 168 people in 21 months
My name is Melody and I have started this campaign to help my good friend Jacklyn in her fight against Breast Cancer. 
This beautiful wife and mother of 3 year old Ryler, and 4 month old twins, Blake and Kyle, was diagnosed a month ago with stage 2 Breast Cancer-Invasive Tubal Carcinoma. 
Recently, after further testing there was a second mass detected in the other breast, and she was also informed she tested positive for the BRCA2 (Cancer Gene). Which means a double Mastectomy, a Hysterectomy and Chemo. 
As an expectant mother of twins myself, I cannot imagine the emotional and financial strain she is under. It truly breaks my heart.  As if taking care of a 3 year old and newobrn twins isn't enough to deal with! 
Although insurance will cover the majority of her treatment, they will not cover it all. The cost of that, on top of the cost of what she will need to provide care for her children while recovering from multiple surgeries, and chemo, is quite straining. I am hoping to raise enough money to cover the cost of care she will need for herself and her children while undergoing and recovering from these procedures. I am also hoping we can raise enough money to help with any added or unexpected costs of hospital stays and surgeries. 
My daily motto is; Be Loving, Be Kind, Be Selfless.  We were put here to serve others in need.  Please help me be loving, kind and selfless by donating what you can and sharing this with others. 
Thank you!

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I wanted to let you all know how Jacklyn is doing. She had her first surgery (Double Mastectomy) almost 2 weeks ago. The recovery has been extremely hard, but yesterday she felt good enough to get up and around the house a bit. Thankfully, due to all the generous donations, she and her husband were able to hire full time help! Since she can't pick up her babies or anything else for that matter, this help is invaluable!
Some of you may know today is GivingTuesday! If you or anyone you know has the means to give or share this campaign, it would be greatly appreciated! We are almost to our goal of $15,000! How amazing would it be exceed that goal!
Thank you!

I am a friend of Jenn Vacirca and she told me about what Jacklyn is going through. I am finishing up my treatment for stage 2 breast cancer as well and I am BRCA 1 positive. I also had to go through treatment with a 3 year old at home. If Jacklyn would like to talk with someone who has been through this, please do not hesitate to contact me. Talking to others has helped me so much on this difficult journey. The treatment is so tough, but eventually life gets back to normal. It gets better, even if it will always be different. I wish you the best of luck, and I am here if you would like to talk or ask questions.
