Keeping The Faith

A few short weeks ago, our friend Vanessa was blindsighted with a diagnosis of uterine cancer. Upon further appointments, scans, and testing, lesions and masses were found on her kidney, and her lungs. The largest mass being 8 centimeters on her lung. 

With this nightmarish news, the journey Vanessa and her family will face, will be a tough one. Family members, coworkers, and friends have surrounded themselves around Vanessa with all the support we have to offer. 

Vanessa will be taking a leave of absence from work to start her healing journey, leaving the financial strain on her family a difficult feat. Her daughters attend private schools, of which they excel in acedemics and sporting teams. 

It is Vanessas wish to support her daughters dreams, despite the struggles her family is now facing. The emotional, and financial toll, will be hard to overcome on their own, and now we are rallying around the family to ask others to support them during the hardest times they are currently facing.
