The family and friends of Denise Pantori are coming together to raise funds to help her fight breast cancer. Please help us!

October 2nd, the terrible news came. My good friend was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of cancer, Micro Granular Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Only 17 percent of women with breast cancer have this type. She has always been a positive person, and we both know she can beat this! She was stirred by my new plight, but not shaken. She decided it was time to take matters into her own hands and tackle cancer foundations. Fortunately, Susan G. Komen for the Cure will grant Chemo & Radiation treatments. No re-constructive surgery &/or medications; EXAMPLE  Zofran odt is $342.00 for 30 pills. Here lies the biggest challenge; she must undergo treatments, which also means that she won’t be able to work for a while. Denise is in the food and beverage industry and thus, like so many hard working Americans, has no health insurance. The terrifying question plaguing her mind is …how do I afford treatment AND pay life’s bills: rent, car payment, car insurance, electric, cable, credit cards, renters/life insurance, food etc? It’s safe to say she is worried, in a big way. Thus far she has contacted: the American Cancer Society, Medicaid, Patient Advocate Foundation, Breakaway from Cancer, Harley Davidson, Chrome Divas, From our Hearts, Lights of Southwest Florida, Shirley Mae Dove Foundation, Rep. Connie Mack, Florida (R) U.S. Congress, Gary Aubuchon (R) 2012 Congress Candidate, Florida…and the list goes on. Unfortunately, the above mentioned either haven’t responded to her inquiries or were unable to help because she is a cancer patient without a final electric or eviction notice. How can she pay her bills when, according to the Doctors, fighting the cancer is now her full time job? To make matters worse, she was laid off from her job in early November. Donating to this Give Forward account will help her to cover the expenses of day to day life, and the profound costs of treatment. With your help, her mind can be focused on healing, instead of the financial burdens she is facing. Her chemotherapy treatments begin in 2 weeks, and will last at least 5 months, 6 weeks of radiation to follow. We both thank you in advance for your generous donations. Every little bit helps in this journey to recovery, health, and peace.
