**UPDATE** Absolutely amazing! We hit the goal of $2000 in just over an hour. I would LOVE to continue to EXCEED our original goal to the new goal to make a bigger impact for Kristina! Thank you all so very much for helping keep this woman on her bike and fighting!!

Kristina posted in Pelton BST hoping to sell her bike for money for her medical deductibles that are staking up while fighting for her life. I’d love to help her offset her expenses by what she would get for her bike so she can keep something that is a great outlet for her!

Here is her original post:

”If anyone in the Seattle area is looking for a gently used Peloton let me know. I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and while I love my Peloton, I have a high deductible health plan and my medical bills are catching up with me so I'm going to let my bike go. I thought I'd try here before the general facebook marketplace. Pricing advice would be helpful as well. Thank you!”

Will post updates!

I wanted to update! Around 2/10 I developed an infection in my head related to severe low whit blood cell count. It got progressively worse despite aggressive out patient treatment and on 2/14 I was admitted to the hospital. I had two CT scans, MRI and an ultrasound and it was decided I needed surgery to clear up the infection. Neurosurgery stepped in and did surgery on 2/20 to remove the infection and "clean things up" as they put it. They left a drain and some staples. I had the drain removed 2/22 and still have the staples. I am very puffy but otherwise feel "ok" which is about as good as I can expect at this point in time.The plan is discharge very soon and home on IV antibiotics. Unfortunately this delays the rest of my chemo,surgery etc. Being behind is stressful because I begin to worry about the cancer growing and spreading while we are not fighting it. Please keep me and my boys in your thoughts & prayers. Specifically that the cancer does not grow and spread during this waiting period.

I was hospitalized again 2/14/19 for a fever and infection in my scalp. An MRI on 2/16/19 showed an abnormal collection of fluid between the skull and scalp. My physician ordered a CT scan to get a better look and come up with a treatment plan. So right now I'm waiting to find out what's next.

I had chemo today! My ANC was 0.9 so they decided to let me squeeze in. Usually they like it to be 1.0 or higher. I was delighted. But now I'm sure feeling the chemo. I guess that's how we know it's working. I'll keep you guys updated ❤️❤️

I just wanted to say I'm blown away. This brings a level of relief I have not felt since I was diagnosed. Cancer causes so many worries. Will I survive? How will my kids handle it? What about work? I could go on and on but the truth is cancer has become a full time worry for my family. Not having to wonder if when I check in for chemo the receptionist will refer me to patient finance (yes, they do that) is such a RELIEF!!! I have two more months of chemo (I started in September 2018) and then a bilateral mastectomy (radical on the right side), 60 radiation treatments and then reconstruction and possibly more chemo. Such a long road! Thank you for your support. Because of you I can pay some medical bills AND ride!
