Help Lois Carter fight Cancer

Lois Carter is an Honest and kind hearted woman. When our small community was devastated by the flooding on Halloween 2019 she didn't  hesitate to step in and help in anyway possible.
She was the Make-A-Wish fairy godmother for 15 years as a
wish granter.
She belonged to the Dolgeville lioness Club where they did many community activities including taking over and doing the Heritage Festival at a time when the Violet Festival was not happening. She did that for 3 years until they formed the Violet Festival again. She initiated a handful of people from the community who helped her canvas our people to do the monument in
PLOWE PARK. She helped refurbished the bandstand,erected poles for the flags
that hang there today. Helped raise $5000 for the monument which honors WW II, KOREAN, VIETNAM, AND DESERT STORM soldiers. We had a " Norman Rockwell Day" and had a huge parade, a 4 jet flyover, a chicken barbecue, and handed out plaques to 87 soldiers who served in Iraq. It was a truly memorable day. She received Woman of the year for the American Legion, Woman of the Year for Lions Club District 20 Y2 and Herkimer County award for the VFW
She participated in the Lions yearly show for many years, directing and writing 4 of her own shows. She started one event during the Lioness Days where we were able to raise $10,000 for the Eye Institute. She was always involved in any activity that involved her children. And who will ever forget the Halloweens at her house. 

Lois was recently diagnosed with Stage 2 Colon Cancer and has developed a bacterial blood infection from the Picc line. Medical Bill's are piling up and this battle she is facing is hard enough without wondering how she will pay for treatment costs that go past what insurance will pay.  Lois is not one to ask for help but I am hoping our small community will help ease her worries.
