Sandy & Janice need some support!

Dear Family, Friends and downright great humans,


I am writing to ask for your support. Our dear friend Sandy is in need of some serious love, kindness and generosity. On June 21, 2011, Sandy's mother Janice was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer with metastasis to the liver. Janice spent the following 6 months in chemo treatments fighting this disease, all the while with a smile on her face and Sandy by her side. 


Janice needed to start Chemo treatments right away so on July 6, 2011 she started her first round of 6 months of treatment. Sandy, who lives in North Carolina with her incredibly supportive fiancé, dropped everything to be by her mother\'s side, including her jobs, a grant to teach in Spain and relocated to Buffalo, NY. They spent much of the 6 months letting the cancer know they simply weren\'t going to have it! With their positive attitudes came some serious medical expenses. Bi weekly chemo treatments came with a co-pay of $150.00 per visit. This on its own was challenging enough. After seeing some improvements with the completion of 12 rounds of chemo, Sandy moved back to N.C., got her job back and started to regain some semblance of financial security. Unfortunately, Janice has just received some challenging news. She needed to begin weekly chemo treatments immediately as the cancer has started to spread. This is where you come in.

Many of you have known Sandy for many years and knowing what a kind, caring and remarkable ray of light she is makes this a heart wrenching chain of events for those of us who wish to do all we can to help simplify what she is going through. While no amount of money can offer relief during this time, it will certainly allow Sandy and Janice some peace together while they focus their efforts on Janice's recovery. She wants nothing more than to be with her mother and fight this disease head on but is feeling the pressure of leaving her job, yet again. As her friend I am asking you to help, in any way you can. Any small donation can make a huge difference in lessening the financial stress during this emotionally challenging time. 


Thank you for taking the time to listen. 


With much appreciation and love,
