I'm being proactive in raising funds to help with my battle against breast cancer. Please help and show your support.

Hello My Darlings,

On July 11, 2012 I found out I have stage 2 breast cancer. Luckily the diagnosis is good, it has not traveled to the lymph nodes and I have to decide on my surgery options, which is pending for August. However the shock of figuring out how to pay for these new expenses have led to my new challenge. I am no longer employed, and I have returned to school fulltime to finally earn my bachelors degree. Obviously, my journey has changed and shifted, but I feel confident that I will get through this with a new zest for life and advocacy for cancer research and education for young adults.

Today, I'm asking for your support. I wish I that I wouldn't be in this position, but since my work contract ended last year, the health insurance plan that I was under also expired because honestly who can afford to keep $400/month insurance living off of $1000 unemployment. Not me, and at the time I didn't have any health issues to worry about. Well, what a difference a few months have made-UGH. I've applied for financial assistance, but that only covers some of the expenses. I will have either a mastectomy with reconstructive surgery and chemotherapy or a lumpectomy with radiation and chemo. The estimated costs at this point can exceed $50,000 and can set me back with recovery, going to school, and finding employment again. I'm asking for your donations as well as your prayers today, this is not going to be easy for me or my family and friends that are on board to help me through this.

Thank you for taking the time to help, I plan on updating you with information while I go through this journey. In the meantime please send your donations today. If you'd like to mail a check, you can make it out to Makeda McLune, and mail it to 17343 NW 20th Ave Miami Gardens, FL 33056. Or you can send money to the paypal account.

Lot's of Love,

Makeda
