Things have been crazy for me but I did want to update our readers about our cancer mom Stacy. Right now we are putting together a cancer benefit for Stacy and her family. A ton of our local businesses are donating gift certificates and other items for door prizes and a silent auction which we are extremely thankful for. And while our local businesses are able to help Stacy and I wanted to give our online friends a chance to help as well; our online friends were extremely helpful last year when we raised funds for this family (we raised over $500).
If you or your business is interested in helping Stacy and her family, right now we are looking for prize donations (of any denomination as well as gift certificates) that can be used during the benefit as well as cash donations. All proceeds will go straight to Stacy and her family and in return for your generous support I will also be offering free advertising on the home page of MomFuse.com. If you are only able to make a cash/check/paypal donation, I would be more than happy to set aside a thank you section for you as well as offer you a link to your blog, website, store, etc. We do expect at least 400 people to be present for the benefit, and all donations will have “donated by” along with a website, company name and any other pertinent info you would like listed. Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help in any way or have questions.
Monetary donations can be sent to Stacy Lester, 900 Division, Charleston, IL 61920. If you would like to make a product donation please email Jessica at info@ momfuse.com. You can also make a donation through Paypal by clicking the link below or sending it directly to email@example.com (remember to list your donation as personal to avoid any fees).
Stacy, age 33, is a mom and a registered nurse. She was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2009. It has mastesized to her lymph nodes and Stacy has been given a 41% chance to pull through. Since the diagnosis Stacy has been unable to work, this mom NEEDS our help.
When Stacy started chemo it threw her into menopause and she had to have a total abdominal hysterectomy. On September 30th Stacy had a double radical mastectomy. After the mastectomy she had a severe MRSA infection and had to wear a wound vac for 2 months with visiting nurses.
Stacy has completed 7 rounds of chemo and is currently going through weekly chemo treatments for 12 more weeks, followed by 32 radiation treatments.
