My Mother Valerie was just diagnosed with Breast Caner, Please help us and show your support for a good cause, and that is saving her life.

Update as of 10-11-2012. My Mother had her first appointment today at Dana-Farber accompanied by my sister who arrived from Florida last night and myself. It was a long day. We saw the Oncologist and the Surgeon, who are both wonderful ladies. My mom will be going for 3 tests next week to actually stage the cancer and see if it has spread, once those results come back, we move forward from there. The surgeon informed us that the surgery will take place as quickly as two weeks from the tests coming back depending on their clearance. We will keep you all posted!  Thank you all so much for your generosity, kind words, well wishes and prayers. Please continue to share the page.

My beautiful mother, just found out on her 55th birthday that she has IDC (Invasive Ductal Carcinoma) Breast Cancer. She currently lives in Florida, where the healthcare for these circumstances is completely sub-par. My husband, myself and our two daughters have recently moved to Massachusetts within the last year, and she will becoming up here to stay with us asap for an immediate Radical Mastectomy. We wont know if it has spread into her Lymph nodes or not until she actually goes in for the surgery. We will be transporting her to Boston everyday (Hour+ drive each way) for the best treatment possible at the Dana-Farber institute for Cancer, I will do whatever it takes to save her life! My family and I are trying to raise money to transport her to MA and cover some of the initial costs involved with getting her a few things that she is going to need to be as comfortable as possible through this process, and due to the long trip and time being of the essence, she can not bring any of her belongings with her. Although I have a fairly good sized finished basement for her to stay in, we don’t have a stitch of furniture for her, like a chair she can sit in to read a book or a couch to sit on so she’s not always laying in a bed....a bed that I don't even have for her yet, a used mini fridge for her medications and drinks etc. Unfortunately I am unemployed and a full time student that doesn’t have too much to offer her besides my love, resources and energy. My mother has much to much to keep fighting for, like 4 wonderful children & 3 beautiful grandchildren who absolutely adore her. These are very trying times for my family and any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Please help us help our Mother. Thank you and God bless you all!
