Brandy Link Fundraiser
My name is Brandy Link, I’m 46, a mother of 3 wonderful kids, Brandon (29), Zachary (23), and Karissa (14) and have a fantastic husband, Gary…and I have breast cancer. Brandy found a lump in her breast in early October. She was thankful that she already had a mammogram scheduled, and with the urgency from her gynecologist, was able to get an ultrasound and biopsy expedited. On 10/21/2022 she learned that she had breast cancer that would require a lumpectomy and radiation, however after the lumpectomy they discovered the tumor was bigger than initially thought and had spread to her lymph nodes. She will receive a total of 8 chemo treatments given every other week, followed by a mastectomy and then 5 weeks of radiation given 5 days a week. Cancer isn’t foreign to the Link family, husband Gary also had cancer in 2010, so they know what to expect…but that also means they know what to expect. Although she compares her journey to a roller coaster, she also believes the experience is teaching her to be more patient as a result (but admits her husband may argue that point). She is thankful for a team of doctors who have been incredible and caring, and family and friends who have gone above and beyond to support her. She looks to the future with optimism and hope that she will be done with treatment before the end of summer, in time to enjoy much-needed lake time!

Words of Encouragement
Brandy Link started her cancer journey in October 2022 with the mindset of having all treatments finished by December 2022. After her lumpectomy her diagnosis changed into needing further chemo, a mastectomy, and radiation, resulting in the treatments taking longer than hoped. If you would like to share words of encouragement letting her know she is not battling alone, you can text Brandy at her phone 701-306-5584 or email is [email protected]
The Link’s are very fortunate to have medical insurance through Brandy’s employer, but insurance does not cover all the medical expenses.
Financial support is needed to afford theses expenses associated with her treatments. Please consider donating to her LendAHandUp page.
