Please help Kim offset the financial hardships breast cancer has caused in her life!!

This is the Kim Maue Breast Cancer Fund. In April of 2012 Kim was a victim of the economy and lost her full time job. Two weeks later she was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. She is a single mother of 3 beautiful children. She underwent a bilateral mastectomy in August , fully expecting once recovered, to start working again. However, recently she found out, that despite no lymph node involvement, her cancer is very aggressive. She is also positive for the BRCA1 gene. She will now have to receive chemotherapy and undergo a complete hysterectomy. Thus far she has been blessed with wonderful medical care. The issue is unemployment is not enough to care for her kids and pay her monthly bills. So far all efforts to receive temporary social services, have been denied(which I find appalling and disgusting- but that's another topic). She is in dire need of financial assistance , and feels frustrated at the lack of help she has been able to receive. She is a loving , caring mother and friend. One who has always helped other people as much as she could, even if sometimes it was to her detriment. We would be so grateful for any help you could give to help her through this difficult time.

 

"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next."     -Gilda Radner
