This August, Deon Haywood was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. She is undertaking this fight, in the words of the late Audre Lorde, as “an act of political warfare.” And asks us all to be there with her –– learning, growing, sharing, and fighting at her side.
Beating breast cancer for a second time will be an emotional, physical, and spiritual process that far exceeds the care that doctors can provide. We are establishing this fundraiser, so that when the treatments get tough, Deon is able to invest in the essential self-care that insurance rarely covers: nutritious meals, supplements, acupuncture, massage therapy, etc. Fuck cancer. We love you, Deon!
