Wednesday, Mar 10, 2021 delivered the worst news someone could get. Teresa Baker found out she has extensive lung cancer. On top of this challenging past year as a independent artist and seamstress, she now faces one of the toughest journeys of her life. She has three beautiful children, Joshua, Lexi and Julian. Next week on Tuesday she meets with the Oncologist for the first time to discuss next steps, radiation, chemo etc.
For those of you who know her, she is a fighter. She is determined to do everything within her means to get better. She won't be able to work while in treatment or take care of living expenses. We need to help her any way we can. She is a friend that would be there for us in our time of need. Her son Julian will need to be there to take care of his mom.
Teresa is my family...my sister...my best friend. My mom always thought of her as her own daughter. She has been there in all my times of need. She was there to hold me up when both my parents passed. We have cried together, we have laughed together and we have grown up together. She's helped me any time I've needed it. I have more memories of her than any of my friends because she's been the constant in my life. From growing up in the same neighborhood, to going to St. Bernard Academy and then on to being all grown up and loving the same music and going to see friends play. She's been there and I am going to be there for her.
Her treatment is not going to be easy. We need to help her fight by taking the worry away from things that are out of her control. Please buy a shirt to support this cause. Please share this with everyone you know. Get the word out.
Funds raised will pay rent, utilities, food and life needs while she will be unable to work. Cancer is terrible. And when it happens to someone we know and love, it sucks more than you know.
We love you Teresa! You are our heart and soul! CANCER SUCKS!
