Approximately 250,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. This year, our friend, Sheila Jones is one of them. Since March 4th Sheila has undergone one biopsy and two surgeries in an effort to diagnose and treat the cancer. On June 15th she will have yet another surgery, a mastectomy. She NEEDS OUR LOVE AND SUPPORT!
Sheila is a single mother. She is also a grandmother, sister, friend, colleague and more. While 2 of her 3 children are attending college she has been the sole income provider. She is a dedicated, loyal medical assistant who is always lending a helping hand to her colleagues and sharing her love and talents with her patients. She goes out of her way to make each patient feel comfortable and safe.
Her job does not provide a paid medical leave, nor will it cover any of her necessary prescriptions or medications. She is expected to be out of work for over 6 weeks. Sheila has already used her vacation and sick time for her 2 previous surgeries. With rising medical costs and her daily living expenses, she will be accumulating over $25,000 in debt.
