The family and friends of Magaly Eustace are uniting to raise money to help with medical costs. Please show your support!

In April 2011, my mother Magaly was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer. The Doctors found 7 tumors in her right breast and the cancer had been so advanced that it had spread into her lymph nodes. So a mastectomy and removal of her lymph nodes were scheduled. My mother's right breast was completely removed along with 23 lymph nodes. Coming out of surgery my mother started bleeding internally and was rushed into emergency surgery. We thought we were going to lose her but thanks to our wonderful Lord my mother made it out safe. Following her surgery she had a series of very painful treatments. My mother had to go through chemotherapy. During chemo she lost all of her hair and her nails turned black. Simple chores around the house were extremely difficult for her since she was in so much pain. Chemo wasn't easy!!! Then she had to go through radiation therapy. The radiation completely burned my mother's skin. She would be in so much pain because unlike chemo, radiation is an everyday treatment. Imagine having a burn for two months straight! After radiation my mother finally had some time to rest. Unfortunately this is the time that all the bills started pouring in. Not only does my mother still have unpaid medical bills but now it is time for her second surgery, which consists of the removal of her expander and reconstruction. During a doctor visit for this upcoming surgery her doctor let her know that they no longer take her insurance. So now she will have to pay for this surgery out of pocket! My mother has always been the person to give back. She will give you the shirt off her back. She worries about everyone else except herself. She is an amazing wife, an amazing mother and an even more amazing grandmother. She is the strongest woman I know. I want to thank her for fighting cancer and choosing to live. She has done so much for others and I just want to give back to her for once. We are raising money for her medical bills and upcoming surgery. We want to show my mother that she is loved and not alone. We appreciate your help! Thank you!!!
