Chelsea Reich of West Fargo is a busy wife and mother of three small children.  She put off getting a mass checked on the side of her neck which had been present for several years.  After many different images and studies, she was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer which had spread up the right side of her neck.  Because of the advanced spread, it was recommended that she travel to Florida where she will undergo a thyroidectomy and neck dissection to remove her thyroid and 30-40 lymph nodes, and an associated tumor which has displaced her jugular vein and carotid artery.  The surgery will dictate the type of therapy required in the future – likely radioactive iodine for several months.  She feels blessed to have the type of cancer with a high cure rate with modern intervention, however time away from work and family due to travel and recovery will significantly impact the work/life routine of caring for a family and work in the medical field.

Money raised will be used to cover time away from work, medical expenses, air travel and lodging.  Lend A Hand Up will increase your online donation 20% to help your gift go further.  Cash/Check gifts are also appreciated and should be made payable to Chelsea Reich and given directly to the family.  Chelsea resides in West Fargo with her husband Alex and children Alaina (5), Riley (3) and Charles (1).
