Support Junita W. and her family

Support Junita Wallace and her family

As many of you may know, Junita was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Metatastic Sarcoma in  both lungs. Her first cancer was Leiomyosarcoma. Junita underwent surgery to remove this tumor but after 6 months spots showed up on both lungs during a scan. A biopsy revealed that the same cancer aggressively spread to both lungs. Junita is scheduled to start Chemo (4 strong types) 3 days a week for every other week for 6 to 7 weeks. However, her doctors are not sure if this treatment will work because of the rareness of her cancer. If this fails there is a new medicine that just got approved that her doctors can try. Junita has persevered through her illness and surgery while working full-time and caring for her family which includes her husband, Derrick of 25 years, who is actively serving in the Air National Guard as well as being an Iraq Combat Veteran and her 3 children, ages 23, 20 and 17. She is unable to work at this time due to the progression of her cancer, which has  spread throughout her lungs. Junita is now alllowing us to reach out in support of her and her family. We ask for you to donate whatever you can to help this loving family in need. Please share this page with your friends and family.
