The family and friends of Carla Gay Dickson are raising money to help support her during her fight with Breast Cancer. Join us!

Carla works for the IRS, so she has great health benefits. Unfortunately, she will have to be on furlough for at least 4 months, from October to January. She will still have medical benefits (thankfully!) but won't have any income. During that time, she will also need a mastectomy, and time to recover from it. You can imagine how easy it is to find a new job when you're on chemo, undergoing surgery, and recovering from cancer. Also, she won't be eligible for unemployment benefits because to get unemployment you have to be eligible to work. She's not! This fundraiser will cover her monthly expenses for the four months of her furlough. It also includes the first $2,500 of her out of pocket expenses toward next year's medical expenses. After the first $2,500 her insurance will cover all of her medical next year. With your help, Carla will be able to cover her bills during her furlough and won't have to struggle to come up with that first $2500 next year.
