LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Charlotte McDade came to the station wearing pink tonight, in memory of her daughter, Jamaica Freeman.  Charlotte says her daughter first noticed a breast lump when she was just 22, but no one thought it was serious until it was too late.  Now, after a four year battle with breast cancer, Jamaica died this week, leaving behind four young children.

"And I tell all young women please, please go get checked because she was a very young lady to have breast cancer and it moved to the liver. Then, it moved to the bone and that's what killed her. I'm going to bury her in pink and white," said Charlotte McDade, a devastated mother.

The problem is Charlotte doesn't have the money to bury her daughter.  So, Jamaica's fellow employees at Physician Network Services are organizing a huge bake sale Friday morning at City Bank off of 34th and Slide from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Donations can be made there as well, in memory of Jamaica Freeman.
