Hi. My name is Mary and I am a 43 year old mom, sister, wife and a nana to a most precious granddaughter who I affectionately call "The Miko's".
This is my THIRD diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer that I received in the past 7 years.  To say That I am in a battle for my life is not an understatement. 
When I was 34 I awoke one morning in my bed trying to get my bearings to start a new day and felt a warm sensation on my breast my finger went right to it where I felt a lump.  The voice my intuition said"It's cancer".  At the time I had no health insurance as I was a small business owner and could not afford it. So I ran around the city that I lived looking for a free mammogram. Guess what? No Free mammogram because I did not fit the criteria the #1 being I was not 40  years old. So i finally was able to be seen at a local womens clinic by 9 different doctors that told me that I was fine, it normal to get lumpy breast as you get older etc... But I persevered and after  several months of being  given the run a round I was able to have an ultra sound and a mammogram. I was told well we see something but lets keep an eye on it. 
In my ignorance I didn't even know I should have insisted on a biospy. I
was very blessed to move 3 months later back to the East Coast where I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer one week after arriving. Needless to say I was devastated, angry, and also relieved. I love sharing that story with any and everyone who is willing because  it's so important to LISTEN to your inner voice.
It would not allow me to give up  and that is why I believe I am still alive today, that and the mercy and grace of God.
So after doing all of the traditional chemo, radiation, cutting, splicing. my cancer returned 2 years later in the lymph nodes.  Had several rounds of radiation.  And  now the the monster is back, angry and stronger.   Its has metastasized to my bones and it is the worst pain ever.  I have small holes in my bones and the medicine I am taking is supposed to alleviate the pain but does not.
My family is drowning  in medical bills.  I am not working due to my illness and my husband pays all our bills working 7 days days a week at three jobs.  My medical bills, treatment are very   expensive and we are trying raise money to cover our bills before they come and get one our children as a form of  payment. lol  Just a little levity in an extreme situation. But seriously I am a person that loves people and Have spent most of my life serving others. That is my  lifes purpose.  And with your love, prayers, positive energy and you sharing my story I will be able to beat back this enemy one last time. Thank you for your time and donation.
