I have traded emails with Robin and she has written the following:
"A little bit about my recent diagnosis; about 10 weeks ago I found out that I have Stage II invasive breast cancer, which has spread to my lymph nodes. I have 16 weeks in total of chemotherapy, treatments are every other week. After the chemo is finished in the fall I will have surgery, then most likely radiation, and a year of hormone infusion therapy every three weeks.
Up until last semester my husband, Josh, and I were full time students studying at UMASS and GCC. Josh will continue to attend full time for one more year before obtaining his bachelor's degree and I will reduce my studies to part time. Josh also works part time for my stepfather's cleaning business and I am a stay at home Mom to Cole and Hanna. Hanna has been going to daycare 2 days a week during the summer, but she will increase to full time in the fall so I can go to my treatments and school."
She is reluctant to receive help as she prefers to be the one helping. I have been clear, once she gets better we are going to put her to work for the next family.
So, what can we do for the Whitcomb family?
