The family & friends of Brita Corradini are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

Your 30’s are meant to be the decade that life starts to fall into place. It certainly started that way for Brita Corradini. She was a mother to a fantastically hilarious 13-month-old little girl and 6 months pregnant with baby number two. She had just landed her dream job of being a pastry chef, and with her husband working as a musician, money was tight but they had found what made them happy. However, a week after her 31st birthday, she was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. What started out as a scary diagnosis of breast cancer, snowballed into an overwhelming insurance deductible and taking at least one year off from work. Brita will need to do 3 months of chemotherapy while still pregnant. She will end 3 weeks before her due date and then start another 3 months of chemotherapy after the birth. She will then need to get either a lumpectomy or mastectomy surgery. After surgery, she may need to do radiation.

Brita is a strong, vibrant, positive mama, but the road ahead will have its definite hurdles for the whole family. We humbly ask for your prayers and financial contributions to support the Corradini family in their time of great need as they confront the financial and emotional burdens of cancer treatments and the next chapter in their lives. Any funds graciously donated will go towards their steep deductible and any residuals will help to alleviate basic living costs; making it possible for Brita to stay at home and get some much needed rest during this difficult process.
