The Story

Southpittsburg, TN

Toni King (27) is a loving mother whose top priority is family. She is a proud mother to her four year old son, Taevyn, whom she absolutely adores. Whether it’s playing with toys or playing outside, Toni’s hobbies include whatever it is her son wants to do. Unfortunately, due to her recent diagnosis, Toni hasn’t been able to spend as much quality time with her family.

In February 2017, Toni went in for an annual mammogram. After doctors performed the mammogram as well as a biopsy, the unimaginable happened - Toni was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. Since her diagnosis, Toni has gone through several rounds of chemotherapy. Unfortunately, she was recently informed by doctors that she would have to undergo a double mastectomy as part of her treatment since the chemotherapy treatments did not shrink the tumors as well as they had hoped.

Toni’s diagnosis with breast cancer has affected her financially, mentally, physically, and emotionally. After treatments, she often feels sadness, pain, and fatigue. She is unable to work and has had to move back in with her mother. Toni is so grateful to have a loving mother who serves as her caregiver, helps care for Taevyn, and helps her get to and from appointments. This helps alleviate a great amount of stress, however Toni is determined to gain back her independence and get back to living a life she loves.

Toni hopes to raise $3,800 through RedBasket.org to assist with medical bills, travel expenses, and daily bills while she is battling breast cancer. Raising these funds would allow Toni to be able to be able to focus less on the financial stress and allow her to focus more on her recovery process. “It will take some of the burden and stress away from me and my family and it would help me provide for my son,” said Toni. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Toni’s story and help her on her road to recovery today!
