Join Joni's Leukemia Challenge

My sister, Joan Sorita, the creator of Therapy Corner Store and international massage therapist for horses and dogs, was recently diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.  Joni will require a bone marrow transplant, chemo therapy and other treatments.  These treatments require an extensive recovery time and relocating nearer the hospital periodically for treatment.  Beyond insurance coverage there will be substantial costs to face this challenge: insurance  deductibles, transportation costs and housing costs to name a few.

Joan has given her life to promoting the well-being of both animals and humans.  Her innovative work with massage and aroma therapy has helped thousands of animals and people over the years.  I have watched her selflessly give of herself to make the lives of animals and people who love animals better.  Now Joni needs our help!  I want to do whatever I can to help her beat leukemia and get Joni back to her generous, important work.  You can help too by making a donation to this Go Fund Me Page.

Sincerely and gratefully,

Jill Lauro

Joni’s sister
