EASTON, Conn. -- More than $70,000 has been raised since Feb. 2 on a GoFundMe for an Easton mother of three who found out she has lung cancer last month.
Alix Edmondson Martinez was diagnosed Jan. 23 with a tumor the size of a lemon.
"Being a non-smoker and a healthy eater, it was a shock of a lifetime," she said.
Martinez' husband Paul has to commute into Manhattan four hours a day and their children, ages, 11, 9 and 6 need babysitters so Alix can go to her treatments at Yale Smilow clinic (Smilow Cancer Hospital), she said.
We will squish the lemon so I can get back to being a strong mommy and wife and get back to my passion as a photographer" Alix said.
