Lisa Musto, 43 Is one of millions that was diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Lisa is a proud woman that is asking for your support.

Every 3 minutes, there is a new diagnosis of invasive breast cancer. Lisa Musto got that devastating news in November of this year. She was advised that she had a large mass over 10 centimeters that needed to be treated with chemo immediately to shrink the cancer so that removal was on option. Lisa is a 43 year old mother of 3 great teenagers. She is known as “Momma” in the apartment community she lives by those that come to her for advice and guidance. Lisa always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude. Lisa is one of those people that you never hear say anything negative.

Lisa had her first chemo treatment the week before Thanksgiving and on Thanksgiving Day was admitted into the hospital where she stayed for 1 week to recover from the drop in her white blood cell count. The return to the doctor did result in good news- the tumor shrank. She is still facing 4 more chemo treatments and then radiation. So she has a long road to recovery.
We are confident that Lisa will recover medically although financially she is struggling to pay the co-payments, medicines, rent and utilities. Lisa and her family lived from pay check to pay check before all the new obligations so she is really stressed about keeping a roof over her children’s heads. She is a very proud lady and does not like the idea of a hand out although at this point it is desperately needed. I have no doubt that she would give the shirt off her back to someone in need.

Her family, friends are coming together to support her and her kids although monetary support is much needed.
A portion of her hospital bills will be covered by her basic insurance, but how much is still undetermined. They could easily be thousands of dollars. We are attempting to raise only enough money to cover the rent and utilities and hopefully some of the medical co-pays.

Lisa leads a simple life so this amount is HUGE! Remember--To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own. Anne Lindberg
