The family and friends of Diane Carter are uniting to raise money to help with her medical expenses after her many surgeries.

A pinhead . That's all that Diane Carter could see when she looked at what her doctors called an abnormal spot on her mammogram December 2010. Her annoyance at what she thought was their overreaction from her doctors turned to shock and fear when they revealed that she too had breast cancel. Having always taken care of everyone else she thought she had escaped the dreaded family history. (Mother and 3 sister had been diagnosed and had undergone treatments for breast cancel.) To her surprised the doctors suggested course of treatment:: a double mastectomy due in part because of her family history.

Carter a 55-year-old firefighter with the Jackson, Mississippi Fire Department had not intended on losing both breasts. On February 14, 2011, Diane underwent surgery for breast cancer. Now to her dismay she has to undergo yet another breast surgery in less than a year. In May 2010 she underwent emergency colon surgery and had to be off for at least 3 months, therefore with both surgeries all her leave time has been exhausted. This time without to financial support of donated time from her co-workers due to official rules of the Jackson Fire Department she is in dire need of financial support.
