Nadia's family is trying to raise the funds needed to keep their daughter, stricken with breast cancer, and her 4 children in their home.

Nadia is a lover and a fighter, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer she tried to work up to the last day before her surgery in order to make ends meet for her and her four children. Her plan fell apart when the doctor appointments began to consume her days. She is an occupational therapist who is used to spending 10 hours a day rehabilitating, supporting and loving on the elderly who have conditions that confine them to wheel chairs, beds or who are unable to carryout their daily tasks without assistance. I wish you could have see her working. She would take such care for the elderly, making sure they are healing while enjoying their stories. She attempted to make their every day brighter and happier. But, now she needs help.

Monthly and daily expenses are exceeding her ability to maintain her home. She recently has had major surgery, a double mastectomy with reconstruction and the doctors also found the cancer had metastasized to her lymph nodes. All of this, with the impending 6+ months of chemotherapy,has severed her current ability to work and generate income. She still fights on by trying to get better but this too is exhausting.  And, has multiple financial burdens mounting on top of her health issues. she has been working to stretch her budget but her funds are dwindling. 

And, even when bedridden she gives her all to mother her children, listen to their daily stories and attend to their needs. Cancer is not only threatening her health, her career and life, but also taking it's toll on the children that she is raising. The mother who is usually attached at the hip with her children and enjoyed their weekends in the park among many other loving family moments is now sick and struggles to cook a meal.

She is determined to get well again but needs you're help as these mounting burdens impact her healing process and add undue stress to her daily. Thank you for your help, thoughts and prayers.
