Connie's Cancer Fund
Organized by: Stephanie Bura
I am starting this campaign in hopes to help support my best friend Connie Castillo as she takes on the the biggest fight of her life... Connie has always been there for me when I needed her.... I am pretty she she has been there for some of you as well... That's why I have decided to make CONNIES FIGHT MY FIGHT AND SUPPORT HER TILL SHE WINS.... 2 days ago i spoke with Connie and she told me she was was diagnosed with STAGE 3 BREAST CANCER. ..OVER the past few years Connie has been through a lot and never has she ever given up... I have never seen her afraid to speak her mind and those of you that know Connie know what I am talking about..... Its Connies way or Connies way that's all there is too it.... Well this time Connie doesnt get to have it her way and for the first time I can say I know that she is afraid.... She has known for awhile now but she has never been the one to express what she is going through because of her pride.... I have been there for Connie thru her most difficult times including when her mom passed away suddenly in 2011 from a stroke. Since she lost her Mother Connie has had little to no support and her living and financial situation are not ideal for her current situation. This morning Connie had surgery and 2 large Tumors were removed from her right breast. She had planned to have both breast removed however after talking with Dr it was decided to just REMOVE tumors at this time and follow up with radiation treatments. This IS not the end there is still a long road and she needs all the help she can get...This campaign is important to me because I believe her life is worth fighting for and I don't think anyone should have to face terminal illness alone. She is not married and has never had kids. She has a heart of gold and would give you her last dollar or the shirt off her back. The raised funds will help pay for anything she needs that is not covered by insurance like Co pays and medications and a stable living situation as well as give her some hope towards her recovery. This is very real and close to my heart. Connie has helped ALOT of people throughout her life and all I ask is if she has ever helped you at any one time or if you know Connie personally I ask that you please make a small donation. Anything helps and I thank you in advance if you are not able to donate please share this. If you have a family member or a friend who has Cancer or lost their life to it please contribute in their memory. MAKE CONNIES BATTLE YOUR BATTLE AND SUPPORT HER TILL SHE WINS!!!!
