Helping Mothers & Fathers with Breast Cancer
**(SEE UPDATES AT BOTTOM)**
Hello my name is Lisabet Buesing, and welcome to my web-page. Let me begin by telling you a little bit about myself.
I am a 25 year old single mother of a beautiful 6 year old boy named Damian Michael. At the young age of 22, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and have since had the cancer spread to my brain and lungs. The past three years have been incredibly difficult for me. I now know first hand what it is to have cancer, hold a job, raise a child, pay endless bills, and face my own mortality everyday.
Some wonderful and very supportive people I know suggested that I set this foundation up so that they could help me with my mountain of bills that continue to pile up, I began to think... I thought -Why couldn't I use this foundation to help raise money for other young single mothers facing the same experiences that I'm facing? I know how they're feeling. Believe me, there are days when it's hard enough just to get out of bed. So I have decided that I am going to turn this into my life's mission, to help other young mothers fight this terrible disease. Even if it's some small bill that I could help them with. I know the burden it takes off of you to have one less thing to worry about that day.
Words cannot express the gratitude I feel. So many wonderful people have come into my life that have wanted to help me. It has started a fire inside of me that I know will not be extinguished. I am hoping to start raising money, and turning this foundation into something great. I want to show my son the importance of paying it forward to others who need support, and help. So far, God has given me the gift of time: I am choosing to use my time in this way.
Please help me make life easier for young mothers struggling with this terrible disease. Your donation will give us young mothers one less thing to worry about today.
