Your donation can help Teresa fight breast cancer by helping with medical expenses, gas, groceries, prescription co-pays, etc.

Teresa was diagnosed with Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, Triple Negative breast cancer in September of 2013. Living in a small town, her physician and treatments are a 2-hour drive (one way). Treatments are once per week plus additional doctor appointments and check-ups. Medical bills are adding up fast as insurance does not cover 100% of surgeries and treatments. Other expenses, such as gas (approximately $60 per trip), food, and prescription co-pays quickly add up.

Teresa has three children, and her husband, Chuck, has two children who are all supported by Chuck and Teresa. Maintaining a family lifestyle in addition to paying for expenses related to treatments is very difficult, and you can help ease this burden by donating. Teresa is facing a long battle ahead as chemotherapy treatments will continue for five additional months. After chemo, a double mastectomy will occur. Radiation will then occur, with follow up appointments for approximately one year for reconstruction and to monitor for reoccurrence.

Your donation to this family can make all the difference and help Teresa fight breast cancer.
