The family and friends of Nelida Rivera are uniting to raise money to help her battle against breast cancer and the high cost of insurance.

As many of you know, my family has been fighting the battle against breast cancer with my mom for the past two years. We have stood by her through chemo and surgery and now we are faced with the high costs of her medical insurance. My mom has not yet been approved for disability or Medicaid. They are running short on funds and their insurance for one month is over $1300. If the insurance is not kept up, her doctor's visits and prescriptions will not be covered and she may soon be in need of surgery from a recent fall that broke her hand. I know that I am asking for help at the worst time possible - in the midst of a slow economy and right after the holidays. But, if you can afford to help us raise the funds to keep her insurance in force and help them get through at least one month, we would be eternally grateful. Even $1 will help us pay for her medical insurance and prescription and doctor visit copays. Thank you and God bless.
