From Brenda, May 14th: Hey my friends. I was just diagnosed with breast cancer. My mother had breast cancer and my grandmother died of ovarian cancer. The cancer has spread throughout my left breast. I will be undergoing a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. The surgery is scheduled for June 7th. Recovery is 6-8 weeks. After that recovery the ovaries will be removed and another 4-6 week recovery. I will miss up to two or more months of work. I have been living alone for about three years now, my kids live with their dad with one in college. July 1st will be my first rent due without work. Any and every little bit helps. I thank you for supporting me during this unexpected life change. The American BBQ in Rowley will be hosting a fundraiser for me on Tuesday, May 30th, 6-10pm.
