The Story

I am a 41 year old homeschooling Orthodox mother of two young children facing aggressive stage 2a invasive ductal breast cancer. (Since 3/27 upgraded to stage 3b for metastatic spread to lymph nodes)

Due to a department closing, my husband lost his job of 11 years and we were unemployed for half of 2016. We received exactly one job offer which meant we had to use our savings to move across country for. We didn't think it was that risky, thought we would re-establish our savings again but life took a decidedly different turn.

This is entirely out of the blue, there is no history of breast cancer in my family and no symptoms. I went in for my first mamogram for a baseline reading and was given the bad news. Dr. Dumalo started my chemo 3/30 and I will receive a double mastectomy with possible radiation in August. My husband is too new at his position to qualify for vacation or even unpaid FMLA so I will rely on nurses for my care during treatment. Any amount will help us with the mountain of medical bills we face as insurance deductibles reset to 0 on 7/1 not 1/1 as we thought, which is smack dab in the middle of treatment.

I also run Pascha Press and (let's hope my kids don't need to use it) wrote a children's book about the Orthodox funeral service. Buying a copy of this book, "When My Baba Died", is another way you can help us keep our roof over our head and food on the table. Thank you and God Bless you!

Still recovering from the surgery 2 weeks out, pretty sore still but thankfully the drains came out! Now it seems like fluid is collecting in my midriff area, will have this checked out at my follow-up next week. Radiation will begin in a few weeks after that. Lots of love to everyone!

Today's chemo turned into a herceptin only infusion...the oncologist decided it is in my better interest to bump surgery up to Monday. This coming Monday!
