About the Campaign:
Family and Friends,
I am definitely not the type of person that asks for help so this is VERY difficult for me, however I don’t want my stubbornness to negatively impact my children. Many of my friends have suggested a go-fund-me route…so here we are.
As most of you already know, I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in June during the peak of this pandemic. I had a successful, though challenging, surgery in September and it has been a very long recovery process. However I am finally feeling better than I have in over a decade. I am finding it easier to smile without faking it and I don’t want to lay in bed because I have no energy.
I applied for short-term disability in October since my recovery process made it impossible for me to work. However, the company denied my claim the week of Thanksgiving. Our savings is gone, collections are threatening and our credit rating is about to be trashed. We owe much more than the goal I set, but this amount will help tremendously while I arrange payment plans for everything.
I probably shouldn’t of waited so long to ask for help but would be so very appreciative and grateful for any support you can give. PLEASE do not feel obligated to donate. I realize this has been a challenging year for everyone! Even if I don’t make my goal I am humbled by the love and support everyone has given me throughout this challenge. (I am still having a difficult time clicking the “Post Campaign” button…but here goes…)
With Much love…Dana, Candace, Aedra and Cooper.
