My name is Tanya a breast cancer survivor who is still having medical issues in need of fiancial help with living expenses.

In May of 2011 I was diagnosised with breast cancer. After a series of very painful biopsy I made the decision to have my breast removed and lymph nodes under my arm removed in August 2011. I was a graduate student at the time pursing a masters degree in divinity. School had to be put on hold as I focused on healing and recovery. In March of this year I had my reconstructive surgery. I attempted to go back to work and found I was having swelling and arm pain which prevented me from preforming the job I was hired to accomplish. I am getting ready to take physical therapy because I am still experiencing pain and swelling in my arm and fingers. I was able to draw unemployment until March of this year when my benefits ran out. It strange I never thought that I would have this much trouble bouncing back from any illness. My goal is go back to school in the fall and I am praying that I am physically able to do that, I just need a little help with expenses such as rent, light bill help paying medical expenses and co payments. I am also praying that I find a job I can do, so that I will not be such a strain on my parents who have been very supportative. Cancer has been humbling and very hard on me emotionally as I deal with having to depend on others alot when I am used to taking care of myself and then not being able to do the things I would normally due because of health limitations.
