Help Veronica

Imagine being in your early 20s and being told you have cancer.

Imagine you are that same person and you are a single mother.

Imagine that you now have to tell your young son that you are sick. That you are very sick. That there is a chance you might not be around for him anymore.

Imagine it.

You can’t can you?

That is exactly what young Veronica has had to endure.

Veronica is a young single mother that was told she had ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is a very rare form of cancer. There is not near enough research on this particular type of cancer.

And what has made it worse is that her insurance carrier has decided it will no longer pay for her treatments because she has a “pre-existing condition.”

So she can’t pay for her treatments and she can’t pay for her medicine either.

Cancer is a very hard fact to deal with. I have some experience with this. I myself have never had cancer but I have had to deal with it.

You see, my wife Jesica battled ovarian cancer for 4 years before it took her life in 2009. Besides myself, she left behind an 11-year-old girl, a 5-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl. I know firsthand what it feels like to have to tell your children that mom isn’t going to be around anymore.

I would have rather just been able to say mom was sick but now she is better.
That is what we need to do for Veronica. We need to pull our efforts and money together and make sure that Veronica can one day tell her son that she is all better.

I urge you to donate to her cause. Money needs to be raised to help defray the costs of her medication and her treatments.

Let’s get Veronica healthy. Let’s give her son the greatest gift he will ever receive, his mother’s health.

Go to The Team Veronica Fundly site and donate what you can. No amount is too little or too large.

Also, you can follow Veronica on Twitter at @Rainy_Cooper and Like the Team Veronica Facebook page.

Veronica needs your help. Veronica’s son needs his mom so he too needs your help.
