We are raising money to help my beautiful mommy fight her battle against breast cancer. Lets get together and give back to Julie!!

Most of you are probably aware that my dear mommy was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. The news struck me like a bolt of lightening. My mom is the most precious person in my life. I love her so much. I go to her for everything. She is the best mom ever and the most beautiful, amazing, strong, and loving woman in the world. I still can't believe it happened to her. She is so young, healthy, and full of life. The thought of losing her is the scariest, most painful thing I've ever had to deal with.

"The desolation and terror of, for the first time, realizing that the mother can lose you, or you her, and your own abysmal loneliness and helplessness without her." -Francis Thomson

There is nothing greater or more comforting than a mother's love...

I'm sure many of you can relate to the pain and fear I have because I know a lot of people love my mother, too. She is the cutest and sweetest thing on the planet. What makes her so special is her natural passion for life and love for other people. She spends all of her energy helping other people or improving herself so that she can better help other people. I see her giving every single day. The experience of cancer has only strengthened her love and desire to grow. She is an inspiration to everyone around her. I am so blessed to have her as my mother.

Her cancer has now spread to stage IV. She was originally diagnosed with Her2 positive breast cancer, but it has now been confirmed that she has had Triple Negative all along. The misdiagnosis, which doctor's refuse to take responsibility for, resulted in mistreatment and immediate recurrence which is now much more difficult to treat. I cannot stress enough how angry and confused I am, but all we can do with this information is use it and continue to move forward. There is a lot of exciting research going into triple negative breast cancer, but currently the most effective treatment is chemotherapy.

Unfortunately, she is not able to work full force during treatments and the high cost of medical treatment, plus alternative treatment, has been detrimental even though she has health insurance. The diagnosis is stressful enough and I don't want her worrying over petty finances when she really needs to focus on healing. If we all pitch in what we can, together we can make a huge difference in her recovery right now. I want her to have the best treatment possible. She is so strong and so brave, and she is doing everything she possibly can to beat this, but right now we need your help. I like to think of this as our time to give back to Julie. Please help me and my family. Help my mom. I need her. And the world needs her too!
