A year ago today, I started intensive chemotherapy for #breastcancer, 3 months ago I finished aggressive radiation treatment. It's hard to believe it's been a year. I was in treatment nearly twice as long as anticipated and it was an incredible struggle to keep up w/everything 1/
A struggle which I often feel like I failed at. Running a small business solo is a challenge on a regular day, it becomes an other beast entirely when you're going through cancer treatment. 2/
I currently have 5 full time & 2 part time employees at my bakery @dalypies. I've always prioritized making sure my staff gets paid, even in the leanest of times, even if it meant not paying myself (I'm sure many business owners what that is like) 3/
Of course that means that other bills were sometimes neglected & I fell behind on a lot of things, including rent at the bakery. I have dug myself out from being 32K behind to just 6k, but that last 6K is due in a few days and despite business being up, I'm currently tapped 4/
My landlords have been incredibly generous allowing me a lot of extra time to catch up but their patience has justifiable run out and I am staring down eviction. As a pie bakery I'm going into my busiest time of year, but I have to keep the doors open to take advantage of that 5/
So my ask is this: If you live in #NYC & want to pre-order your #Thanksgiving pie now, that would be incredible (dalypie.com/order). Or if you could give a little to help me raise the rest of what I need to keep going, I would be so very grateful (gofundme.com/dalypie 6/
I remain overwhelmed with the generosity of my family, friends, the #uglydogs, & kindhearted strangers. I would not have made it through this last year without your encouragement and support. 7/
I probably don't have to tell you that it would be absolutely devastating to lose my business when I am so close to getting my life and livelihood back. A business that that I started in my tiny Brooklyn kitchen & grew into my dream pie shop in #prospectheights 8/
When chemo wrecked my palate, I would dream up new pies & file them away to test after my sense of taste returned (it has!) I made up Bravermountain Apple (honey apple w/a honey baked crust) inspired by @BlairBraverman & @QuinceMountain (and just sent them the final pie!) 9/
Please help me through this last rough patch. I still have a lot pies to dream up & make for you. If you could amplify I would be so very thankful @rachelholliday @danielleiat @barrygoldblatt @joshgondelman @socarolinesays & anyone else who believes in the magic of #pie end/
