Hello all, I am now on medical leave indefinitely and medical expenses are piling up. Anything you can donate will help.Thank you for your continued See More

THE STORY:

*Believer* Mommy*Love Advocate* Survivor* Optimist* Occupational Therapist* YES, That's ME!!

My life was initially INTERRUPTED by Stage 2A TNBC IDC Triple Negative Breast Cancer in Nov 2012/2013. I was 35 yrs old. After 16 Chemo cycles & Double Mastectomies BUT GOD-- Graciously granted me a healing BLESSING x 15mths ALL while being a single mom of twin boys(9yrs old at the time). * Praise Break* FFWD>>to TODAY- 11/2015. I am 38yrs old and I have been quietly but fiercely & FAITHfully living with my second occurrence with Breast Cancer for one year ( Rediagnosed 9/2014)* Sigh*. This time -- Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer.  This type of Breast Cancer  based on research is said to be incurable but treatable{So THEY say} BUT GOD... I will likely be on some form of treatment indefinately. :-/. I am currently participating in my second Clinical Trial which requires me to take 14 oral chemo pills daily(on a 21day cycle) called  Xeloda. God's Grace has been ALL over me. I don't "look" sick, I have hair and I AM LIVING!!!

As October{Breast Cancer Awareness month} passed me by I spent a lot of time thinking --- Am I still a SURVIVOR? What am I gonna do? What about Desi? What about my Twin boys?(now on the brink of 13). What about my LIFE? Where do I go from here? Should I forget about my dreams and future plans?!!? NO-NO I WILL not! The more I FIGHT this ugly disease , the more zeal I have for chasing my dream--- My biggest dream next to being married** Insert SMILE** is to become a homeowner! I/ WE NEED to have OUR own safe place, a place of peace , a place WE can call HOME. Living with family has been a blessing BUT ** I NEED this !! **

I have decided that I WON"T let Metastatic Breast Cancer consume ME. I AM Going to keep LIVING, I am going to keep BELIEVING in GOD's Power to HEAL, I am going to keep RAISING my handsome tween twin boys, I am going to keep ACTIVE at my church, and I am going to keep WORKING in a career that I absolutely love-- touching lives daily! I  have been blessed to be able to continue to work and support my family so far! I have been blessed to carry  healthcare insurance and life insurance. BUT a major BARRIER has been the ongoing medical expenses. The copayments from frequent monthly Oncology appointments, the Co-payments for medication and Co-insurances for routine Diagnostic test has hindered me from SAVING the necessary funds for the down payment/ Closing cost for this HOME that I am dreaming of. I am WALKING by FAITH!! I have already applied and processed the application for the local City of Delray Homeowner's program. I have gone to the Financial counselor and have my plan of action/ budget made and floor plan picked out. 

SO, NOW.... I come humbly reaching out to you ALL for financial assistance so that My boys and I can have a dream come true during such a Crossroad in our lives. NO Amount is too small. WE need this HOME. I NEED it. We need it. Prayers are greatly appreciated for US and Our entire Family as WE FIGHT to LIVE on PURPOSE.
