Your medication, or your rent? The choice is very real for one Las Vegas woman who was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Cairann Love is a name she created for herself. She says it best describes who she is. And this holiday season she could use just that - lots of care and love.
Love lost all three of her brothers within a 14-month period, then found out she has a very aggressive form of breast cancer. Now she's forced to make a choice no one should ever have to make.
"There is no way [I] can do both because if I do the chemo, I miss work, and I don't have the hours to pay my rent," Love said.
She recently finished her first round of chemotherapy and took nine days to recover. 
Love's friends set up a GiveForward page to collect donations. Click here to donate
