Round 2 of chemo today - she's fighting on! THANK YOU AGAIN! We truly appreciate your support! Keep the positive, healing thoughts flowing. See More

THE STORY:

As you may know on November 6th, 2015, my dearest friend, Laura Howard, was diagnosed with breast cancer. For any of you who know Laura, she's accepted the diagnosis with strength, humor and positivity -despite the fact that she had just turned the corner on her recovery from heart failure. Now post bi-lateral mastectomy surgery, she is facing the next challenge of her process entering into chemo and radiation treatment right around Christmas time.

Many of you have asked for a way to show your support and help for someone we all care for. While she has graciously weathered the big C diagnosis, it has become a reality that medical bills are becoming burdensome. There are so many facets to treatment which will not be covered--medical equipment rental, at home nursing assistance, medications, etc. Respectfully, I am asking for your help in making sure my bestie gets the best care possible. We really appreciate any support you can offer to assist Laura on her road to recovery.
