Tricia's triple negative breast cancer treatment fund

More Info

I am remaining hopeful and determined to do what I can to try and prolong her life. I am usually a very private person but in an attempt to help her, I am sharing her story publicly (with her permission) and asking for kindness and support from family, friends and strangers alike to help make this journey of hers promising. I am determined that she outlives any statistics.

 Friday, October 28, was my Aunt’s first day of many months of grueling chemotherapy that will hopefully shrink the cancer and keep it “asleep.” Triple negative breast cancer is considered one of the most aggressive cancer subtypes because it grows quickly, is more likely to have spread at the time it is found, and is more likely to come back after treatment than other types of breast cancer. There also are no targeted treatments. As you can imagine, there are also financial burdens that go along with cancer treatment (medical bills not covered by insurance, loss of income) and Tricia is the breadwinner for her family. A donation in any amount would be greatly appreciated.  *The funds from this campaign will be used for every aspect related to her Cancer treatment. 

At the very least, if anything comes from this page, I would like for more women AND MEN to be aware of signs and symptoms and if you notice ANY changes in your body to act right away!

Updates will be posted here. Thank you for taking the time to read this!!
