I'm collecting donations so I can go to a cancer conference and get my life back together. Thank you for your support!

  My name is Shannon Farrance and chances are you know me and you're aware of my battles with cancer.  If you're not familiar with my battle, I was diagnosed at age 25, and 27 with an advanced stage aggressive cancer that above all odds I've beat! :) 
  I'm now attempting to take control of my life again and get back to work but I've ran into numerous psychological, financial, and physical road blocks.  I need to meet others in my age group that have experienced a similar crisis and are left with the same devastating reproductive outcomes and loses that I've had.  I need support resources and advice of how to proceed with everything from my career to family planning, but most of all, I'd like to meet and bond with people like me who have went through the same traumatic events as I have. 
  Since I have not been working, this conference is not possible without help from you. The $1500 will just cover my round trip ticket and my hotel stay for the time I plan to be out there, IF there is anything left over(which I highly doubt) I will donate it to the organization that is sponsoring this event who funds research and support programs for people 18-39 who are diagnosed. 1 person 18-39 is diagnosed with cancer every 8 minutes. 
  Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for your support! This is the link for the conference In case you'd like to check it out or know someone else who could benefit from attending :)
