Need some support.....


Jen's fighting Italian spiciness and spirit is going to beat this! 
ova' here from my bloggy friends out there. I have a true blue old school family friend who is battling breast cancer. It is something that in this present day world we are hearing about much too often. She was 39 when she received her diagnosis one month after her mother passed away. It is tough as shit watching  a friend that you used to play/hang out with while rockin'  out in the streets to the San Francisco 49'er rap song when we were just little tikes go through such struggles in such a short period of time.  To have to go through something as painful as losing your mom then having to go through the ordeal of chemo/radiation and dealing with shit head, no feeling, robot managing insurance companies it SUCKS!  WE all know someone who has gone through/is going through the fight of their life when battling  cancer. Take the time to read her story and see if you can help.


Remember a little goes a long way...

Here is the link we have some good momentum going but it would rock balls if we could help her out in anyway.
Getting through chemo without drowning in bills


Below is a short summary of what she has had to deal with on top of trying to fight for her life.

This campaign is to raise money for Jennifer Quilici. She is only 39 when diagnosed with breast cancer. This year her mom died suddenly of a glioblastoma brain tumor, She passed away soon after the diagnosis. They asked that a brain biophys be done so that the tumor could be staged. She never woke up again and she passes 3 days later due to a brain hemmorage.  The next month Jennifer was diagnosed with breast cancer. Its not the simple one since its in her lympnodes. She will have to undergo 4 months of chemo followed by 2 months of radiation. Her Pet scans alone are 15, 000 meaning her copay is 3,000. She is part of that group  of people that are under insured. It is amazing how the bills just keep piling up. we make to much money to qualify for public assistance yet we are barely making ends meet. We just recently received medical bills in the thousands  from Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa. her birthday is 05-22-1972 as to not be confused with anyone else. This road is a difficult one and we will beat this cancer. Her chemo treatment that will roughly cost 160,000 with Jenn's responcibility being 30%. She is getting the chemo treatment at redwood medical center in Napa, California we will notify them if monies would like to be directly donated to them on behalf of Jenn. This is not the end of our road but a seperate journey that has altered our course we still have school to finish, traveling  children. Just need some help so that we can get there.


Oh and BTW this is for you cancer
