The family and friends of Kimmie are uniting together to raise money for her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support.

I am writing this letter on behalf of Kim DeLaune. She has worked hard her whole life, and is a single mother and the sole provider for her son. She has always spent her free time helping others, and has always been the most selfless and giving person I have had the privilege to know.
Starting in late 2011 Kimmie had been feeling ill. She went on about her daily routine assuming she was  just tired. On May 4th  she found a lump in her left breast. On May 14th she was diagnosed with Triple Negative Stage 2 Grade 3 Breast Cancer. Less than a week later she underwent a modified radical mastectomy of her left breast. She is scheduled to begin 16 weeks of chemotherapy next week. The chemo will be in extremely high doses and will cause her to lose her hair after the first treatment and will damage her gums and teeth.  In the meantime, she is unable to work to provide for her son, and still faces the long and daunting process of chemotherapy and recovery. Kimmie doesn't not have health insurance.
I am personally asking each person that reads this to stop and consider what you can do to help.  Due to Kimmie not having health insurance I would like to raise enough money to help Kimmie pay her regular bills, feed her family, and not have to worry about transportation and chemotherapy and breast reconstructive surgeries. Kimmie will have  to pay for all her medication out of pocket.  No one should have to endure the stress of bills and cost of medication and treatments while they are battling Breast Cancer. Any  amount you can donate would be an enormous blessing, and would be infinitely appreciated.

Thank you 
Melinda Hoover
