One of the sweetest ladies I know is suddenly facing a life threatening illness.
Janene Giordano-Beane is loved by so many people.  Her family loves her dearly as well as her close friends, her students, and her coworkers. A few months ago, Janene began experiencing pain in her side, The doctors located a mass that needed to be removed immediately.  Following the removal of the tumor, Janene learned some of the cells have tested as malignant---Adrenal cancer.
It is very rare and very aggressive. Because it is so rare, there is not much research on it. Janene had surgery on March 21st, and the doctor feels that he got it all, but he can't be 100% certain. The doctor does not  want to take any chances with this type of cancer. The traditional chemotherapy is thought to hurt the body more than get rid of this type of cancer. After a meeting of the cancer board at Piedmont Hospital Atlanta, the doctors decided Janene's best option is to do a clinical trial located in New York City at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Janene's  first appointment is April 12th in New York City.
The expense of traveling back and forth to New York City for treatment will begin to place a financial burden on Janene's family quickly.
Please consider helping with Janene's medical expenses.  She is scared but trying to be brave for her husband, Darryl, and their three children, Macie, Mariah, and Riley.

UPDATE: Following her visit with the specialist in NYC on April 13th, Janene began her chemotherapy treatment in pill form. She started with 2 pills a day increasing by 2 additional pills weekly until reaching 10 pills daily. She reports that the pills do make her nauseous, but she has been pushing through to finish the school year with her students. On June 6th, Janene will travel back to NYC for a CT scan to see if treatment is working. She will meet with the specialist in NYC on June 8th to find out the results. Please pray that her CT scan comes back clear of cancer!!
