The family of Iris Holt is raising money to help with her battle against stage IV breast cancer. Please show your support!!!!!!

Another innocent and beautiful woman has been affected by breast cancer, my mother-in-law - Our Iris Holt.

Iris was diagnosed with stage IV recurrent breast cancer in December of 2010 at the young age of 59 after being a survivor for 10 years and 11 months. She was a tough and focused fighter when she was first diagnosed in 1999. Cancer took her left breast. The medical bills forced her into bankruptcy, but she kept fighting. Iris underwent chemotherapy and radiation along with all of their side effects and WON; the first time.

Iris received and was able to enjoy so many blessings over the next many years; including witnessing the marriage of her only child, having the opportunity to be in the delivery room when her only grandchild was born and being called "Myma". She has SO much more she wants to do and see and accomplish.

This ugly monster has come back into her life and the life of all of us who love her. It has come back stronger and more aggressive. Once again, my vigilant Mother-in-law is fighting daily with all she has. Even during unimaginable rounds of chemo, she is still trying to go into work each day. Now, she has started radiation. She still calls wanting to know if her energetic 4 year old grandson can spend the night. She refuses to let cancer take the "LIFE" out of her life!

The medical bills have begun to fly in. She has not ONE time asked for help. But I know her, I see her, I see the worry and stress of managing her medical bills now along with trying to fight, work, survive and remain strong for her family. I won't sit back and be a dormant observer of this. I love this woman; I ask that you find it in your heart to contribute to this very special and unique person so she can focus on nothing more than fighting.

We give our sincere appreciation.
