Fundraising to Wig Out!!!!

She is a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a hard working BUSY lady – Gloria P. The endless amount of energy, strength, and generosity I see her with every day (with or without cancer) is so admirable. There are days when I wish I was as strong she was. Gloria never asks for much or for any favors in return. Anyone who has ever needed her, even for the smallest little thing, knows she is amazingly supportive and always there when you need her.

Recently Gloria found out her cancer has returned to try to battle with her once again. While we know this is a mistake (and she is will beat this!), the treatments she will be doing this time around will be more intense. In the past, she was able to do methods that weren't as intense and intrusive to the body as these chemo treatments will be.

Inevitably, what comes along with chemo treatments will be combinations of symptoms such as fatigue, nausea, discomfort, hair loss, etc. While these symptoms are ones she can't control, hair loss is one of the easiest to mask. What you may not know, is the cost of a wig made with real hair can be very expensive – they can run up to $1,500+. I know I didn't know and only found out after she went to look at wig options, and she shared the information she was given about prices. A few days later it occured to me - Gloria didn't have to settle. There was no reason why she couldn't have the best in her time of need. Never once did she ask for help, but I knew there was no reason why her friends and family wouldn't chip if she had asked! So...I'm doing it for her! Let's help give her the tools she needs to take the reins on one of the few things she can still control - her hair - while she fights off this cancer!

Gloria will soon be sharing many upcoming major milestones with her kids. Adrianna is graduating high school this year, and Ryan will be graduating 8th grade. Let's pull together to help her make these moments the most memorable they can be for all of them as well as make each day an easier one for Gloria!

I'd like to invite you to help raise these funds so we can help Gloria wig out! Let's help her continue to feel strong, beautiful, and confident on the outside so she can continue fighting hard on the inside! All extra money raised will go to medical expenses!

Any amount you are able to donate, large or small, to help with this fundraiser is greatly appreciated.

We, her family and friends, are her support system!
