THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Crystal Brown Lowe. I am mommy to two awesome little boys, J.J. and Christopher. They are five and almost 4 years old respectfully. I am also wife to a wonderful husband and daddy named Jeff. On July 4th weekend I was snuggling with my oldest son when he accidentally pinched my left breast while getting up. I noticed a pain and that pain persisted for a while. When I examined my breast I found a large lump. I went for a mammogram and they decided to do an ultrasound and biopsy on the lump. I thought nothing of it. I just figured it was a cyst from drinking way too much soda and coffee. i was wrong not to be worried because it wound up being breast cancer. I have since been through several more test and biopsies. The doctors have found that the cancer has metastasized into my spine. I have yet to begin treatment but have been informed that the chemo only has a 10% chance of curing me. I hope to use some nutritional and supplemental health as well to fight this cancer. I am determined to beat this cancer because I refuse to miss seeing my two little boys grow up. I have always been very self sufficient and not very good at asking for help but after much prodding from family and friends realized that I needed to get over myself and let others help me. I am a waitress so when I am not at work, I do not get paid. Recently, with all the doctors appointments and procedures that I have had to do, I have missed a bunch of work. My wonderful husband has been by my side through all the procedures. His work has been very good about letting him take my to my appointments. He has only been working there for a little while and they have been fabulous. This being said, he does not get paid either when he is with me. Our income has significantly dropped and we have not even started treatments yet. The drive to the Moffitt Center is two hours from our home. Between the gas, special diet and supplements that I am going to need, and the work we will be missing, I realized that we are going to need help to pay these bills. I was not sure what my fundraising goal should be because I have no idea how much we will need for these things but anything anyone can do to help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to everyone in advance for your consideration and generosity in this matter.
