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!

Hi everyone! The nightmare of the radiation trial is pretty much behind me. Had my herceptin infusion last week and a layer of skin came off with the port seal plastic the nurse used to remind me my irradiated skin won't be normal for a few more months! Waiting to go in for another bone scan and just had a full body CT, should find out results next week.

Hi everyone! I am a little over halfway through my radiation schedule. I have to go daily until 11/3. I am already severely burned purple and starting to blister from under my arm around to the front of my chest. Thankfully my mom is coming in from IN to help me for the next two weeks. I had my biopsy on that new lump and thank God it was just fatty tissue.
