Imagine contracting Lime Disease upon your move to Tennessee... possibly from a tick bite. Then, after battling that for a full year imagine a diagnosis of breast cancer that spreads to the bones in your back, your pelvis and even your ribs. That is the life that Cathy Hoag in Murfreesboro has experienced in recent months.

Cathy, who lives in the Barfield area, was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer this past August.


She is a wife, a stay at home mom of two boys ages 7 and 10, plus she home schools. Now, she is fitting cancer treatment in between her busy schedule.


Her mother has set up a GoFundMe account to help with medical expenses that are not covered by insurance. The funding will also help pay for her monthly journey to the Cancer Centers of America in Georgia.

The GoFundMe page for Cathy is HERE.
