My very dear friend Isabella is 33 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer this past September. For those of you who know her, you know that she is an extraordinary human being. She is cheerful, loving, unbelievably strong and always puts her friends and family before herself.
She underwent surgery at the end of September to remove the cancer, which was successful. But, with further testing cancerous cells were detected in her lymph nodes. As a result, she will be having to undergo 4 months of chemothearapy starting November 16th, followed by weeks of radition.
Because of this, she has been unable to work and will likely not be able to return until the Spring. Short term disability unfortunately does not provide full pay. Some of her medical expenses are not covered and with the everyday necessities of life, money is getting tighter and tighter.
Isabella is one of the strongest, most selfless people I have ever known and is always there to give her love and support or the shirt off her back to anyone that needs it. So much so that she will be shaving her hair before her treatments begin so that she can donate it to someone else in need.
Now, it's time that we send back some of that love and support to Isabella. Anything you can donate will be truly appreciated. Everything we can do to help and surround her with love is what is most important so she can focus on beating this thing. Please spread the word. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
