Chrissy was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  She began chemo last week, and a few days later developed an infection in her port.  She has been in the hospital since Saturday receiving IV antibiotics to treat the infection, which was in her bloodstream.  She has been out of work for over a week now, and has already used up all her sick days and vacation.  Her medical bills are piling up since her insurance deductibles are quite high.   Pete is a hospice chaplain, and his income cannot keep pace with their expenses. Their two sons, who are both ASD, are struggling with this, and need constant supervision and support. I have been trying to help as much as I can, but being retired, my resources are limited. She will be undergoing more treatments in the coming months, and will certainly miss more work.  She works third shift, making it more difficult for her to get the rest she needs when she is able to go back to work.  At this time, she is still in the hospital, and it is uncertain when she will be able to come home.  In the meantime, Pete is continuing to try to work, and I am doing what I can to take care of my grandsons. Any help of any amount would be greatly appreciated, but please be as generous as you feel comfortable. This journey is going to be a long one. after she completes her chemo cycles, she will have surgery to remove the affected breast.  (It is possible she will have a double mastectomy, but that isn’t certain at this point. Then radiation will follow post surgery. Therefore, this is just beginning.  Thanks for your kind consideration and thanks in advance for your donation!

Chrissy is home from the hospital and is doing much better. She is still on IV antibiotics at home, which will be completed by 12/6. She is still unable to work, and probably will not be able to do so for several more months. We are extremely pleased with the donations we have received thus far, and are grateful to each and every person who has donated! Thanks again for your generosity!
