Doris F. is a 65-year-old woman who was diagnosed in November 2015 with invasive breast cancer. She moved to Oakland from Austin, TX in 2011. She works part time for the city of Oakland. She has had two surgeries and has completed two rounds of chemotherapy. She has had GI side effects from the chemo and says she is tired and in pain. She has a fighting spirit and claims, “I am going to beat the cancer.” She is focused on keeping her spirits high. She said that the pain she has would be more difficult if she was depressed, “I have this cancer. But, it does not have me!”. Doris has used the financial support the Love from Margot Foundation gave her for her housing and grocery costs.
