Tamie Hopkins:

After she was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2018, Tamie Hopkins underwent an aggressive treatment plan and was unable to work.

After months of surgery, medication and treatment, Tamie Hopkins' healthcare team successfully removed all traces of cancer - but now medical bills are trickling in from her surgeries, hospitalizations and medications, and the mom of two young boys, ages 9 and 12, has been unable to work.

Post-radiation testing will be performed around September to determine whether or not there are any signs of cancer, Hopkins said. Following the mastectomy, there were a few signs that cancer may linger in her tissue, however, that was prior to her radiation therapy, she said.

"In light of this, she is still in need of donations and all forms of love and support," fundraiser organizer Linda Russell wrote on the GoFundMe page. "Your generosity is always greatly appreciated and has made a significant difference."

In October 2018, Hopkins was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer, including two tumors on her left breast along with fibroids reaching to her lymph nodes, the fundraiser said. A few weeks later, doctors found a one centimeter spot on her spine and Hopkins' diagnosis was bumped up to Stage IV cancer, Russell said.

Hopkins started chemotherapy, and she is undergoing more than a year's worth of aggressive surgery, radiation, reconstructive surgery and medication, according to Russell. Hopkins and her fiancé were planning a wedding for April 2019, but it was postponed due to her treatments, recovery and lack of funds. Due to her extensive care plan, she is not working for the unforeseeable future. She recently overcame a staph infection by undergoing an additional procedure adding to her out of pocket expenses. Tamie's next procedures will be performed on September 11th. But when she was well, she worked as a Regulatory Affairs Specialist for Hyland's Homepathic.
