Becky Atkins of Fargo is married to Brent “Chet” Atkins and they have two sons, Blake and Bryce.  Becky has been a special education paraeducator at Fargo North High School for 25 years. She enjoys spending time at the lake, cheering on the Fargo North Spartans and UND hockey. Becky’s greatest joys in life are her husband and boys.

She was diagnosed in early April of 2022 with breast cancer with lymph node involvement. She had 8 rounds of chemotherapy during the spring and summer. Becky had a modified radical mastectomy with 19 lymph nodes removed on August 30, 2022. One week after surgery she developed an infection at the site of her 2 drainage tubes and was treated with antibiotics. The infection came back worse, resulting in Becky being hospitalized for 4 days the end of September. She is currently doing antibiotic infusions at home three time per day. Due to the infections, her next course of treatment has been delayed. Eventually, she will begin 30 rounds of radiation and 6 months of oral chemotherapy.

Becky has only been able to work 2 days this school year and Chet is out of PTO at his job and has been taking a lot of time off without pay to care for Becky and to go to her appointments. At this time, Becky does not know when she will be able to return to work.

Lend A Hand Up will boost your online gift 20% (up to $1000), making your generosity go further!  Cash/Check gifts should be made payable to Rebekah Atkins Benefit Fund and dropped by a Bell Bank location.
