Louise went for a routine mammogram on March 18, 2019. That’s when they found 2 masses on her left breast and was diagnosed with breast cancer a few days later. She then had surgery to remove the cancerous tumor April 16th, started chemotherapy in June, and then radiation October. On May 12th, 2020 she celebrated her last intravenous chemotherapy. Because of her type of breast cancer, Louise will be receiving a specific treatment every 6 months and will take oral medication for the next 5 years.
In Louise’s Words
Finding out about the Pink Wig was a true game changer. The funding I received allowed me to still pay my bills and keep us afloat. Myself and my family are truly thankful to have had the help from such an amazing organization.
