As you all know, my sister Tiffany was recently diagnosed with Stage 2 Triple-Negative Breast Cancer. Like other types of breast cancer, TNBC can often be treated successfully if caught early, but in general, survival rates tend to be lower compared to other types of breast cancer.
Due to the aggressive nature of TNBC, Tiffany will begin chemotherapy treatments very soon, on 12/15/16. These treatments will occur every 2 weeks for 4 months at which time she will then undergo a double mastectomy.
Tiffany is a loving wife, friend, daughter, sister and most importantly, mother to her beautiful daughter, Olivia. She works for an animal clinic and enjoys helping others to make sure their furry friends are happy and healthy. She has a giving heart and we want to give back to her and show her how much she is loved!
Her out of pocket expenses are, needless to say, going to be through the roof. Nobody is ever prepared for the type of financial strain that comes from undergoing countless medical tests, treatments, surgery and missed work days. The bills are already rolling in. We are reaching out to all of you as her friends and family and asking that you donate whatever amount you can to this cause so we can help take some of the pressure off of Tiffany and Nicol in the coming months.
A fundraiser has also been organized for January 7, 2017 at Just 1 More in Melbourne to benefit Tiffany. We would love to see you all at this event also to spend some time with Tiff.
We love you guys and truly appreciate any help that comes Tiffany's way! XOXO!
