I want to tell you about my girlfriend, Christine Wasson.  Christine is 50 and came into my life about three years ago after the death of my wife. She has been an absolute rock in my life and a positive role model to my children.   Christine has spent most of her adult life helping others. She is the Program Services Manager for a domestic violence shelter here in Florida. She helps women and children at their lowest point and always without judgment (a virtue I strive for but haven't mastered it NEARLY as well as Christine!) She is an absolute angel on earth.

Last month, she was diagnosed with breast cancer (Forgive me as I am bringing myself up to speed with the lingo....DCIS) Because of a history of cancer in her family, she has opted for the bilateral mastectomy. Her dilemma is that, in working for a non-profit, she has no health benefits and would have to pay out of pocket for any medical services. Because of the wonderful work she does, the surgeon doing the mastectomy has agreed to let her to make payments.  The surgeon has strongly suggested that she get the reconstruction done at the same time. We are currently in the process of interviewing plastic surgeons who will do a reconstruction and allow her to make payments as well. Two surgeons, an operating room, pre-op blood work, anesthesia and at least one night in a hospital all cost money.  The surgery has been scheduled for July 3rd. 

In an effort to help her through this, I am organizing this fund raiser.  Most donations will go toward her medical and surgical costs, as well as to living expenses should her recovery time exceed her PTO time.  If donations exceed total cost, we will donate anything left to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  

Please help me "Pay it Forward" for a woman who has made this her life motto while she helps others.
