A local mother fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma "Warrior Style" is raising funds to help cover medical expenses with a GoFundMe campaign.
T.J. Coleman, a 32-year-old mother of four from Santee, was diagnosed with cancer in July and posts on her Facebook page show her continuing battle.
The GoFundMe campaign has raised $2,100 by 30 people in 3 months.
Here's a bit of what her eldest daughter wrote:
"When my mom told my sisters and I that she had cancer, we were really scared and sad. My mom did a good job telling us she was going to be ok. She said she will fight and get better. I was really scared of what she was going to look like with no hair but actually, it's not so scary. We have fun trying on new hats! My mom can't work during chemo and takes care of us 4 kids. Even though she doesn't feel good she is always trying to be a good mom and look on the bright side. We don't see our dad much because he works really hard to take care of all of us. Please help my mom and family. I love her."
