I am putting forth a plea for anyone who has dealt with or knows someone with cancer to help me raise money to defray cost of treatment !

Katie is a sole caregiver for her ailing mom and she herself was just diagnosed with breast cancer and with her treatment and the time off work will be without income...I'm pleaing with anyone with compassion for any cancer survivor to please help me raise some money to help Katie defray her cost of treatment. I will let Katie tell you in her own words of her fight...

I was diagnosed on july 19th . with invasive ductal carcinoma IDC I found a lump a month earlier and by the time that they get me in for a mammogram and prcedures I had in the month of july and August, i have mammograms , biopsys, pet scans, MRI's, Blood work, it was august 23rd the I had a bilateral mastectomy,with reconstuction surgery both breast, this could take up to a year, and 2 more surgery's. I am having to take off 12 weeks off work and Im still going to have to take more off work to have my treatments for stage 2 cancer. I will need radiation, the bills are starting to mound in and I am having to travel 25 miles one way which means a 50 mile trip every time I go the to doctor.
If i have to have radation i will be needing to go 5 days a week for 5 weeks, this is very expensive and costly on gas and food.
Thank you so much for doing this I need all the help that I can get at this time.

Love you,
Katie
