Please watch this video—it’s Erin’s thank you to us.
Erin, a single mom to three-year-old Fitz, was diagnosed with triple negative, stage four breast cancer that had metastasized to her spine and liver. Her doctor offered her end-of-life care at 38. Lee, Righton, and Pamela, her colleagues and champions, found a promising new treatment but the cost was exorbitant, so they did everything physically possible to raise the funds needed. The Friday before Erin was to start treatment arrived and they’d raised only one third of the funds, so they turned to Together Rising and we—this community—activated rapidly to ensure Erin began her first round of treatment that Monday.
A few weeks ago, we shared how well Erin’s cancer is responding to the treatment. Today, she tells you herself.
Because of this community—all of us—Erin is now dreaming once again of having more time with Fitz. Not of months or days but years.
