Ms. Dee

Ms. Dee is the first teacher many of our little ones ever had. For the past 19 years at Curiosity Corner she taught them letters, shapes, colors, kindness, a love of nature on their walks to the park and helped them create keepsake art projects.

Because of metastatic breast cancer, Ms. Dee is closing Curiosity Corner on March 1. After being cancer-free for nearly 20 years, this summer she learned that breast cancer had returned and spread to her bones and lungs. She's had surgery to drain the fluid in her right lung and is undergoing surgery in the second lung this week, which makes it impossible for her to continue teaching. 

For the past several years, after her husband was seriously injured at their daughter's wedding, Ms. Dee has been the sole provider for her family. He has been through eight surgeries in the past three years and suffered health complications. 

Donations to this GoFundMe will go to help Ms. Dee and her family financially while she is unable to work.
