SADDLE BROOK, N.J. – A longtime Saddle Brook mom is battling stage 4 breast and bone cancer, and her community is rallying to give her support.
“This treatable but not curable type of cancer has impacted my life and the life of my family in an unfathomable way,” Pauline McCarthy wrote on a GoFundMe page created to raise money for her as she fights the disease.
“My treatment which consists of chemo twice a day every day has eliminated my capability to work,” the mother and grandmother wrote.
The page has raised over $7,000 in donations by Monday evening.
“I am so thankful for the constant help I receive from all of you,” she wrote.
McCarthy also reminded supporters to “smile every chance you get.”
