Dearest Friends, the burden's that follow when diagnosed with a life threatening disease has began to take there toll. As if being a divorced single mother was not already a struggle, at least rewards followed daily with happy kids.

Getting back to my "CANCER TROUBLES". I have hit a dead end in my road. Financially I have had my parents to pick up what "disability, social services, and national organizations" could not. But, I still have a long way to go, and my parents can not continue much longer.

The organizations that were assisting me only have funding for specific time periods and I have reached the max. I am not able to return to work, as most of you know I was a bartender for the last 21 years.

With no "BOOBIES" and no hair, bartending is out!! I have enrolled in online college to finish my BA, and once I get through radiation and the last 3 surgery's I will get a job at Jack in the Box if I must, until I am done with college. College scholorship and Federal Student Loan is to thank for this.

Well that about sums everything up. I have struggled with asking, but I must swallow my pride and do what must be done to keep my kids in our home, and me above ground instead of 6 feet under.

So I am asking my friends, and their friends should you feel the need to help me by forwarding my request. Can you help by donating $2.00 or MORE if you are able to. I know that times are tough for everyone, right now but a friend needs you. That friend is me.

This is the hardest thing I have ever done, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Okay friends, and god knows I have so many great people in my life. I need the help of each and everyone of you.

You may also mail a cash donation, gas card, walmart card, wallgreens, cvs, stater bros, personal check, or money order to: 554 West California Avenue unit 3, Vista Ca 92083. Or drop off your donation at Jim's Vista Lounge, 1587 East Vista Way, Vista CA 92084 just give it to the bartender on duty. Online transactions are secured as you will see there credentials.

Every single dollar will help, me as I fight the biggest fight of my life. There may be some of my friends still that have not been in the loop. For those of you I was diagnosed with Multicentric Infiltrating Breast Cancer, which as left me with not much. Actually the story is that my diagnoses should have came 2 years ago, but my doctor really screwed up. That is a whole other story.

My goal is to raise 3,000.00 this will help carry me for another 6 months, along with my income. The donations will be to pay med's, rent, utilities, and TP, and oh yes help me get to and from my doctors visits daily in Escondido.

Now don't for a second think I am not going to make a promise to myself and to you my friends. I will continue to spread the word via facebook, blogging, media that resources for woman are available should they find themselves in my shoes. Check out my Facebook.
