Tricia's Breast Cancer Fight

$15,773 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 140 people in 28 months
**** UPDATE ****

Tricia started her first of 24 chemo treatments last Friday. She is there today as I'm typing this. She text me saying her weekly co-pays will be $200 and she has no idea how she will pay them. Not to mention the other doctor bills and meds she will have to buy. Of course she still is without a job and is in a serious bind. My only source of consoling her is to say not to stress because "God will Provide"....I am asking you all to please spare whatever you can, share whenever and however you can, and please please pray as much as you can. My faith is strong and I know we can help our dear friend who is a mother and grandmother to get the money she needs so she is no longer stressed about how to pay for it and can focus on getting stronger and beating the evil C word. God Bless to All!!!!
Help spread the word!

**Update** November 28, 2017

Tricia had a visit with the oncologist yesterday afternoon. Was a rough one. He wants to do another round of chemo with different cocktail then the last time. Tricia is very disappointed that she has to do this again, will lose her hair and the options are narrowing. She will have a blood transfusion tomorrow to increase her hemoglobin count and will have her port put in next week for her chemo. She is worried about how she will pay for things she needs. Please pray for her. She needs all the moral support, prayers, and any financial help would take away her extra worries. She currently has no source of income and worries about how she will be able to provide for her son, pay for her necessities, medicines, deductible, amongst other bills that are piling up. Every little bit helps. If you can't give a donation at this time, please share, and pray for this sweet angel. Thank you and God Bless!


***UPDATE***

It's been a year and a half since Tricia finished chemo and unfortunately it came back.  She is having surgery today for a double mysectomy to get it out.  Two months ago, she lost the job that she was at for 10 years. She found a new job, but her insurance doesn't kick in till January. She was in a bad car accident a month ago and has had to have hand surgery and then she finds out she has cancer AGAIN. She needs help with her cobra insurance and also with the new job she doesn't have any time off from work plus the want to cut her hours now.  Any bit helps....and if you can't contribute financially, please send your prayers and share with others. Thank you and God Bless!





On Wednesday, October 13, 2015.  Tricia found out that she was diagnosed with agressive stage 2 Breast Cancer.  This came as a total shock to all of us.  We are still learning more about her diagnosis and treatment plan.  What we do know is that her prognosis is positive and for all those who know Tricia, we know she is a fighter and no matter what obstacles she comes accross...she prevails and she will come back stronger than ever.  With that said, the road ahead over the next few months will definitely be a challenge.  

Tricia will need a port for her chemo/radiation treatments, she will also incur many additional medical fees.   The emotional and financial burden of fighting cancer is a challenge (to say the least).  Tricia is the most fun-loving, caring, considerate, silly, there when you need her, good listener, best friend to many, mother,  sista, and overall and AMAZING human being!! I am sure you will all agree that Tricia needs our love and support now more than ever.  

This is where you and this fund come in.  The medical bills will soon start to add up and she will have to miss work.  We are reaching out to our amazing supportive network of family and friends to help in any and every shape or form.  Any donation is greatly appreciated and will be a huge help to Tricia during the next few months.

A few examples of what the funds raised through this site will be used for: 

-Medical treatment costs (chemo, radiation, medications, as needed)
-Bills and expenses that will add up while Tricia is out of work
-Any other unanticipated costs that come along with this fight

In addition she will also need support from friends and family to get to her appointments, help take care of her 2 sons Justin and Julian, and her mother.  She has alot on her plate and it would help if she has the support of family and friends to help with her stresses.  

Thank you all for reading and considering Tricia's road ahead.

Please forward and share this with any and everyone you can.  Every little bit helps.  

The biggest contribution is to put Tricia in your prayers, Power of Prayer is Strong!

Latest text update from Tricia to me this afternoon...please put her in your prayers. Amen.

Well I’m scared to death . The internal dr just came in . He said my pnuemonia is getting worse according to chest X-ray and that the meds I’m on are really strong and if they aren’t working it’s a sign that my immune system is having a hard time fighting . He’s going g to call dr Pandya and explain to him to see if he wants to come out here and see me . He said they may need to get and infection specialist in on the case . But I can’t go home until pnuemonia looks better . And that my triple negative breast cancer is hard to fight and he doesn’t want to scare me but there could be some of the tnbc cells in my body still . Anyway I’ll be in hospital probably another couple days or so ..
I’m scared .

****UPDATE****

Tricia had another surgery yesterday to have her port placed so she can start another grueling round of chemo. She currently has an infection, but when the infection is gone she will begin. Hoping she is able to start chemo before year is over because she will have to pay the high cobra deductible yet again. If you haven't read Tricia's previous story, she is on her second battle with cancer. The amount raised is mostly from last year when she had a dependable job. She was laid off about 6 mos ago and had started a new job, but because of her absences due to her illness, they put her on hourly pay (which isn't much). She is in a really rough time in her life with no real income, having to go through chemo and surgeries again, not to mention worrying about her mother who has dementia, and her 2 sons and granddaughter. Please find it in your heart to donate any amount you can...every little bit helps . If you can't donate monetarily, please share this post and most importantly please pray for this angel. She is kind, loving, and has a heart of gold. Thank you and God Bless!

Tricia, you are a brave and courageous woman. I am so sorry that you have not been well, and I pray that you will feel better soon. I feel that it is great that you decided to shave your head due to your hair loss. You will continue to be a gorgeous woman. I continue to pray for you and your family.
