Kristen's breast cancer battle
Please help Kristen win the breast cancer battle so she can be the best mum to her 2 year old daughter
Kristen would love some help to cope with her breast cancer journey. She has had surgery to remove her left breast and will need to undergo chemotherapy as soon as possible which will take around 6 months.
Kristen is 43 and has a two year old daughter, Amiah. Amiah’s Dad lives in Nepal and although he remains in contact with Kristen and Amiah he is not in a position to provide financial support for his daughter.
Post-surgery Kristen was not able to work and it is likely she will not be able to do too much during the chemotherapy treatment phase. This has put her little family under a lot of financial stress.
With Christmas coming and some bills waiting to be paid it has become a huge challenge for Kristen to make ends meet and remain positive for her recovery. Being the strong and independent person she is, she doesn’t like to ask for financial assistance so I am on her behalf.
Why would you want to help?
In the years before beautiful Amiah arrived Kristen travelled extensively. She did quite a bit of volunteer work in South America and Nepal helping under privileged children. She also taught English to Nepalese women wanting to find work in Nepal.
During her time in Nepal Kristen raised some money from New Zealand to provide; a water purifier, bunks, bedding and clothing to an orphanage. This made a huge difference to the day to day life for the children and the people providing the orphanage facilities with no financial assistance.
Kristen has a small clothing shop with two others but it is not yet established enough to be making a profit. She was also selling clothing at local markets and some of her sale proceeds have also been donated to Nepalese orphanages.
Kristen does not earn a lot and in normal times can support herself, Amiah, her cat and chicken without an issue. But since becoming ill, not being able to work has taken away her ability to earn and remain independent.
Despite her challenges Kristen tries to remain positive each day and most of the time she is able to achieve it. But it is a struggle for her at other times.
If you are able to provide some help to smooth Kristen’s path over the next 6 months, it would be a great gift.
Money raised will go towards keeping Kristen healthy and well during her journey, pay her outstanding household bills and provide some joy for Amiah.
Thank you for anything you are able to give and if that is nothing at this time then that is fine.
