Teena is a hard-working mother of a 12 year old son. She is the primary financial supporter for her family. In May of 2010, her partner of 19 years became very ill. Teena was by his side the whole time and took time off work to be his caregiver after his release from the hospital. Toward the end of 2011, Teena was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkinâ€™s Lymphoma in January of 2012. After aggressive treatment, she entered remission. Although she was not fully recovered from treatment, Teena was forced to go back to work in January 2013 for financial reasons. In December of 2013, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkinâ€™s Lymphoma. Teena had to stop working and had a stem cell transplant in May 2014. Any assistance to alleviate the extreme financial hardship for her and her family is appreciated.
