My name is Sara Wehrle, I am 25 years old and was just diagnosed on June 21st with grade 3 Invasive Mammary Carcinoma.
I recently accepted job offer at a nonprofit organization called Epilepsy Pralid. Because I was so recently employed by this organization, I do not yet qualify for FMLA benefits. As a first time insurance buyer and previously healthy individual, I have an exceptionally high deductible (upwards of $20,000). I start chemotherapy this Friday, July 5th and will continue for a 16 week regimen, along with several other expensive cancer related medications. After I finish chemotherapy I will be undergoing two surgeries and radiation therapy.
As you can imagine, the bills are already piling up. It is for this reason that I am asking for your help in making my transition into recovery as smooth as possible. At such a young age it is extremely rare to have such an aggressive form of breast cancer, and this has been an incredibly emotional time for me and my family.
Any donation would truly be a blessing, and I want you all to know that I appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this immensely difficult time.
