If you’re here from my benefit flyer, here’s a quick blurb about my story! You’re welcome to read the posts if you’d like too 😊

Hello, my name is Emma Parker. I’m a 29 year old single mom to my beautiful daughter, Grace, who will be 4 in a month! Our world flipped upside down in January 2020 when I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer mets to the bones, with no prior cancer diagnosis prior. The week after Thanksgiving 2021 I found out I had brain involvement, a 2.7cm tumor. I had surgery to remove the tumor a few days before Christmas. And radiation in February 2022. I was (and still am) having lots of cognitive, memory, and talking problems and my dr told me that the average recovery time for my surgery is a full 12 months! And I was suggested to just stay home for now and not go back to work yet. So I decided to! But unfortunately Social Security Disability isn’t a living wage, especially not while raising a child. I know times are hard, everyone’s struggling, but I would very appreciate it to come get some yummy bbq for dinner while helping me so I can recover so I have the energy to play and do things with my daughter instead of worrying about having to go back to work when I should be recovering. Thank you all!
