In December 2021 Christina X went to the doctor to get a lump checked out. Immediately before Christmas Christina was told that she needed a double mastectomy, immediately.
Christina, who is a single mother, has a 5-year-old son and is just making ends meet.
The Krewe paid the surgery copay and Christina's mortgage, utilities and childcare for 6 months.
"The Krewe of the 13 are truly an amazing group of people. The support that they provided to my son and I through an extremely difficult and terrifying time in my life was beyond generous. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without them. With their help, I’m able to concentrate on my treatment and getting better for my son. After meeting them and seeing first-hand what they do, it warms my heart to know that there are still genuinely good people in this world. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!"
