Our sweetest and most darling friend, Sophie, needs our help. In mid-October Sophie had an unexpected fainting spell, which led her to have a barrage of testing to find out the cause. Fortunately, the fainting was medically nothing, but the testing did lead to an even more unexpected result: the discovery of a lump in her breast. Following a biopsy earlier this year it has been determined that Sophie has Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, a form of breast cancer. It is estimated to be Stage 2 at this time. Sophie is in good spirits and ready to fight for the tits we all know and love, but she needs your help funding her upcoming treatment, and regular expenses in her leave of absence from work. Initially, funds after covering the cost of the event will be used to cover some of the testing and treatment she has already had, the upcoming appointments, and some basic living expenses so she doesn't need to worry in the short term - we need her positive and calm for all the best healing!
