The friends and family of Dena Stern are raising money to help her be as comfortable as possible as she fights breast cancer. Join us!

Our wonderful friend Dena Stern was recently diagnosed with Stage 2/3 breast cancer. Here's more about it, in her own words: "There is 4-5cm malignant tumor in my right breast and the tests I have done so far tell me that it is aggressive. I still have a bunch more tests before I know exactly what my treatment options will be but, because of my age, the size of the tumor and what they know about my cancer, there will definitely be chemo and a few surgeries. I'm still waiting on test results to see if it's spread to my lymph nodes and if I will need radiation."
As such, she'll be spending a whole lot of time in the coming weeks and months having surgery, recovering from surgery and undergoing chemotherapy.
Our goal with this fundraiser is to do all we can to help make her more comfortable. She's put together an Amazon wishlist of items she'd love to have to help her through this. The items total to about $900, and cranial prothesis (AKA wigs) total at just over 3,000 and $6,000 for fertility preservation, along with an onslaught of post-surgery expenses. We put this fundraiser together to help Dena get everything she needs to be as strong as she possibly can as she faces what's ahead. Please join us.
