#TEAMANGEY Fighting Together Against Breast Cancer
Start: Apr 14, 2019 - End: Sep 1, 2019
It saddens me to even have to write this story as by typing these words it makes it all too real. Recently, I received a very devastating call from my baby sister Angela. I could hear the worry and concern in her voice when she said to me, “I received my biopsy results today.” I listened with anticipation, even though, I already knew by the sound of her voice. She says, ” I have what is called Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, Stage 3, Grade 3.” Being the older sister, even though I was dying inside I gave her words of wisdom and told her we were gonna fight this together and she is the strongest person I know. Her treatment plan is going to be a lengthy one as she will start with chemotherapy, followed by surgery then radiation. She has had only 1 chemo treatment so far and has already landed in the hospital. Her body isn’t responding well. She isn’t going to be able to work during her 14 treatments spanning over 28 weeks. She is a mother of 6 and this is going to be a financial burden to her and her children. She is not even receiving child support right now. That being said we are setting up this fundraiser to help raise funds to get them by. Throughout her life she has devoted her life to helping others as well as extending her hand to help take care of our disabled mother. Now is our chance to help her in any way that we can when she needs it the most. Please consider donating even the smallest amount to her cause as every little bit helps. Some of the things this fundraiser will help with is utility bills, medical bills, childcare, transportation, medications, food, help with every day home cares, etc. By helping with even just one thing will help eliminate some of the stressors she is facing through her journey. And our goal is to make her as comfortable as she can be under the circumstances.
