JoAnn Kauffman is my mother and we just found out the other day that after being in remission for well over 20 years, her cancer has unfortunately returned. She has informed us that there is a huge mass in her colon and requires surgery and medical treatment. This is not something she expected and it could not have come at a worse time because after being let go from her job a couple months ago, JoAnn took resposibility for her own financial income, pursued her dream and opened a gift and antique shop called Carriage House Chic in St. Peter's Village, PA. But any small business owner knows that a lot of time and effort goes into making their business a success, and JoAnn does not have the time nor the energy to keep her business going on it's own; nor does she have a legitimate income to keep her house, as well as her business. Her grand opening was the April 5 and the news of her cancer is just a month over what is suppose to be a time of happiness. This shop is her dream and we just want to keep it going for her. It means the world to her therfore it means the world to us. This is not her fault and she is a fighter.  Please give what you can every little bit helps. All the money collected will be going towards JoAnn's bills and costs of living. Our goal is at least $500 but whatever we can raise will go directly to her, and she would appreciate every little bit.

So today JoAnn had her colonoscopy. We all went with her to support whatever news we were to receive. The doctor informed us the mass is about the size of a grape tomato and is in the same place her cancer was 25 years ago. Unfortunately she will be having surgery which will require her to have a colostomy bag. We also received news that the cancer has not spread to her liver or kidneys and the next step will be to have a PET scan done to make sure it had not spread to her lungs and lymph nodes. After we get the results of those we can go ahead with the surgery to remove the mass. We're are just thankful the news isn't the worst possible outcome. Thank you for all the support and positivity we've received. We are overwhelmed with all the support and the positive response everyone has showed. We will keep everyone updated on the progress. She's going to beat this. She is strong and won't give in to this horrible bitch of a situation. Thank you everyone again - Daniel & May
