Help me get my book published!

$660 of $900 goal

EDIT: I am fully funded for my writers' workshop, so thank you!! But people are still asking to donate for my airfare, and so I've changed the goal and will continue to accept donations for that.  Thank you for your support!

I have always been a story teller and a writer.  I just needed an experience that was bigger than my imagination--and surviving through the past 8 years, I've got one.  This story needs to be told, so I am writing a book.

Ever since I was diagnosed with aggressive, Stage 3 breast cancer, there has been a fire in me to get my story out to the public.  I believe I can help people by re-telling my full experience--it's more than just wanting to write, it is a calling and a purpose. I feel I MUST share my wisdom, cheer, and humor (yes, my book about cancer has comedic elements!) with those who could benefit.  My goal is that my book will give hope and joy to someone who feels as lost as I was during that time in my life.  

I have been given the opportunity to attend a writers' workshop through Breast Cancer Wellness magazine--for the sole purpose of getting my book published and distributed.  My heart longs for this endeavor, and I feel like the timing is perfect.  Financially, I'm not at a place to do this, but enough people have encouraged me to establish a gofundme, so I'm now asking.  Please, help me get my story into the hands of breast cancer patients who desperately need the joy my book can bring them! I will not let you down. Thank you.

I've been asked to raise my goal in order to include airfare and I thought sure why not. So if you're still wondering how you can help, I will keep this page up. I will not spam you or actively update like I did when I was desperate to get to the workshop, it is fully funded and has been paid! THANK YOU! So now it's airfare which is why the goal has changed! So grateful. You all are amazing!
