Are any of you into fund raising at all? I know of at least one of you who have people out there raising funds. Is it realistic for a person with cancer to go out there and raise funds on their own? I was thinking it wouldn't look good if I asked for it myself.

I am not at that point yet, and hope I don't, where I might need anything more than surgery. But yes, all the tests and co-pays all add up. So do the costs of preparing for surgery like being sure you have tops that are NOT pull overs.

So what do you think? Any ideas?

I'm at that point where I'm going to have to raise funds to pay for part of my upcoming surgery in February.  I have no idea what I'll do though. I could use some help!

Why are you waiting so long for your surgery?

What if you put something up for auction on ebay, something that will grab one's attention like a bra (??), and said what the money was for. And what if you emailed and called the news networks about it to get attention? It's breast cancer awareness month so maybe that will help. Hoping for the best for you! I know how financially painful cancer can be. It's bad enough getting the dx.
