Joyce has been one of Fun 4 All's most valued employees for 2 years.
Joyce always displays kindness and friendliness to every staff member
and client who comes to the resort. When she's not working, Joyce is a
dedicated A+ student, she is a wonderful actress and an active member
of the drama program, performing in all school productions. Joyce loves
to spend her free time pursuing her musical talents, Joyce is an
incredibly gifted singer and pianist.
Mid-July Joyce took a reluctant month's leave from the resort due to
back and hip pain. After her leave, Joyce returned to work for her first
shift, she was still experiencing pain in her back and hip. Shortly after
Joyce was hospitalized as her pain had become unbearable. Doctors
notified Joyce and her family that Ewing’s Sarcoma was the suspect of
the pain in her hip and back. The news crashed down hard and fast on
Joyce and her loved ones. They quickly organized and headed to
Vancouver children’s hospital to move forward with treatment.
