This month she found a large lump in her breast and was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, which has spread to a lymph node. She will start chemo treatment next week and will need all the love and support she can get to help her fight through this.
To make matters worse she was informed that the chemo will affect her ovaries and therefore her fertility, leaving her with only a 20% chance of being able to get pregnant. She was recommended to freeze her eggs before starting treatment to increase her chance of being able to have a baby following her fight with cancer. However, this costs approx. $25,000 which they are not able to afford, especially since their main focus right now is to beat cancer and save her life.
If you are able to help our beloved Rebecca, please consider making a donation. Every little bit helps. If you are unable to donate please consider sharing her story and keeping her in your thoughts and prayers. We have a very short time frame in order to raise the funds to allow her to undergo the fertility treatment prior to her chemotherapy. Rebecca absolutely loves children, having worked with children with special needs for the past several years and being the most amazing aunt to her two nieces. She is meant to be a mother and if we all come together we can make a difference.
