Jamie is easily one of the most compassionate, supportive, and generous people I've ever known. She selflessly puts everyone before herself, but now she needs our support more than ever. On August 21, 2018, just 6 months after her wedding and a few weeks after her 39th birthday, Jamie was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is courageously facing months of chemotherapy, radiation, and recovery from a double mastectomy.
Jamie's husband, Mike, will be the sole income earner while Jamie is too sick to work, and it's impossible for most of us to comprehend how overwhelmed he must feel. Jamie isn't fighting this battle alone and her whole family needs as much support as they can get.
Fortunately for all of us, Jamie's prognosis is excellent and I have no doubt that she'll get through this. She's been surrounded with love and support from her many friends and family members, who are all eager to help in any way they can. In addition to the generous support that has already been offered, Jamie will need anti-nausea and other medications that will cost approximately $2,000. Unfortunately, since leaving her job at Shaw, she no longer has extended health benefits. She will also lose her beautiful hair and will need to spend approximately $800-$1000 on a wig. It's important for Jamie to maintain as much normalcy as possible over the next few months - not only for herself and Mike, but for their children, Morgan and Austin.
Mike will be selling his car to offset their expenses and reduced income over the next few months, but they'll still need a hand getting by. If any funds are left over, I can't imagine anything more therapeutic for Jamie and Mike than finally booking a honeymoon in eight months to celebrate the end of treatment.
Every donation will remind the Wylie's that their friends, family, and strangers have them in their thoughts and in their hearts. Whether you're able to give a lot or just a little, every dollar helps. On behalf of Jamie and her family, thank you all in advance for your generosity and support.
