Melissa Kirdzik is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Britney Banks.
A good friend of mine, Jayne Butler, is nothing short of an angel. Heart of gold & that woman that everyone loves. Back in Feb it started with severe back pain. The short story is that early April an MRI to figure out what was going on, showed that it was a large mass on her kidney. Jayne was told she has stage IV cancer & is also in her bones, lungs & brain. The fighter that she is didn't listen to the doctor that first told her she had 3 weeks. To date, she's stared chemo & radiation. She's also been on some alternative therapies, made fantastic diet and lifestyle changes and has an incredible attitude. Tomorrow she will start high dose vitamin c infusions. This vitamin therapy (equivalent to about 300 oranges), in short tricks cancer cells into killing themselves. Highly effective, and of course a very expensive therapy not covered by insurance. Her therapy is going to be $2000/month, and she is unsure of the duration. Bottom line is Jayne is going to be around to meet her granddaughter Caroline, due very shortly. We need her around for the summer, for Christmas, for visiting her daughter in Texas, for making us more of her delicious food, for campfires with the neighbors, for baking dog biscuits for her Lizzy, for yelling at her husband to do his dishe, and to put together her award winning window boxes again next summer. No one is ready to let this amazing woman go, and we would appreciate any help we can get.
