Toni Cole's Battle With Cancer
Toni was born and raised in QUitman and chose to remain in Quitman to raise her children, Sean, 22 and Abby, 15. Toni's pride in her hometown is evident. Recently she dedicated several evenings to pulling weeds in the downtown area, stopping only when she became too sick to continue.
Toni is an employee of the Wood County Sheriff's Office - she is te friendly, compassionate person answering the phone and greeting folks at the front window. Toni's sick hours and vacation hours have all been used and she now faces the reality of the loss of her salary. She will also be required to take over paying her insurance premiums once she runs out of FMLA hours. Toni has endured one surgery but is possubly facing more surgeries. Chemo treatments will begin soon as part of Toni's attack on this aggressive cancer.
Despite bleak prognosis, you will rarely find Toni without her wonderful smile on her face. Her positive attitude is contagious and an encounter with her quite often leads to smiles and laughter.
Please consider a donation to help the chief's wife. No donation is too small and every dollar is greatly appreciated. Let's give a little back to the lady who gives so much to our community.
God bless you all.
That's why the county needs a sick-pool again to help our fellow employees in a situation. I was told that years ago, and before my time the county employees could do that. Wish we could get that going again for those in need today and in the future
