Janet Chan aka MayHo 's Fight Against Brain Cancer

44321830_1577327522218207_r.jpegThis is Janet Chan or May Tak Chan-Ho. She was just diagnosed with Brain Cancer.
Janet has worked at Coach for the past 14 years as a top sales associate in the entire company. She has been recognized by the company many times for her amazing salesmanship. The week before Thanksgiving her Coach friends and family started to notice a change in her The normally outgoing, funny, high energy person we all know and love had suddenly became tired and confused stating she was not feeling well and  forgetting things and people.  A few days later Janet's family reach out letting her friends and family know she had been hospitalized after fainting. The Drs said they were unsure what was happening and she would be there a few days for testing. Test after test finally revealed a shadow around Janets brain. The family was told she would need exploratory surgery to determine if the shadow was an infection or a tumor.  They found out it was a tumor and sent it for testing. The news that returned was not something any person wants to hear. It came back as Cancer. The same Cancer Senator John McCain passed from.  The family was told that it was not something they could do surgery on to remove, it would be treated with Chemo and meds, it is not curable. The treatment is to help prolong her life. The family was told she would have 1-2 more years to live. 
Janet is now fighting everyday to remember some of the small things. Sometimes it's her friends she forgets other times she forgets her family. Not only is the family fighting this with her everyday but the cost of the Cancer is rising. Her current insurance is not accepted by all providers and her secondary insurance is refusing to cover it because it is not her primary insurance. The family is now caught trying to find new drs and pay the out of pocket expenses her 2 insurance companies refuse to cover. To make life more stressful for this family Janet's husband works at the Hard Rock Casino that is closing in early 2020 and will be out of a job. He has currently taken an emergency LOA and has been by Janet's side every moment along with her son and daughter in law. 
All funds raise are to pay for Janet's medical expenses.
