Mother & Daughter Beat Cancer | VideoMichelle San Miguel | 3/24/2012
On Saturday afternoon, friends organized a benefit for them to help with their medical costs since neither has insurance. Couch is a proud breast cancer survivor but admits it took her a while to accept the news.
"It just never really hit me until the day I looked in the mirror, I got out of the shower and looked in the mirror and I was totally bald, I had lost all my hair and it`s like I don`t know why but that day it`s like you really have cancer. You really lived through this," she said.
Shortly after having the cancer removed, Couch discovered she had Lymphedema. She says the money raised at Saturday`s benefit will also cover the costs associated with that.
If you`d like to donate money, you can go to Dakota Community Bank and Trust. An account has been set up under Coni Couch and Roxi Polzin.
