The Garrett Family is raising money to pay for alternative medical treatments in response to Christina's aggressive cancer diagnosis.

On July 7, 2011, Christina Garrett was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). TNBC treatment options remain allusive; recent advancements fail to treat successfully TNBC. The five year prognosis for TNBC is not favorable. After undergoing a lumpectomy to remove four tumors and two rounds of chemotherapy, Christina has chosen to decline further western medicine treatments. She is choosing alternative modalities that will build her immune system rather than destroy it and seeks to balance her body which will enable her body to heal itself.

In late September, Christina connected with an Ayurvedic practitioner who has developed a thoughtful and all encompassing wellness plan to bring Christina’s body back into balance. With the acceptation of acupuncture ($45 co-pay), medical insurance fails to provide coverage for alternative modalities. We are reaching out and asking for your generosity; our resources remain depleted while medical costs continue to increase as Christina battles breast cancer.

Christina has dedicated her life to helping children and families. She is a wife, mother to 16 children, advocate, therapeutic foster, adoptive, and biological parent, mentor, and volunteer. We trust that all the positive contributions our family has made over the years will come full circle. The generosity of others will allow Christina to have an opportunity to become healthy and continue to live, laugh, and love.

Christina invites you to join her journey through breast cancer~
