As some may know, many do not, our own precious, Judith, is now battling an aggressive form of cancer.
She has just returned home after a very invasive and extensive surgery at the Mayo Clinic.
She will now begin a grueling regime for seven months of chemotherapy and radiation.
She has a battle on her hands to be sure. The good news is, this is treatable. If anyone can take this on, it's our Judith.
I'm starting this page with her knowledge and blessing. As she said, "every little bit will help."
As Judith lives in Chicago area, she has no family here. Her siblings are facing their own illness's at this same time.
Along with the her treatment plan, comes the realization that she will not be able to work for an indefinite period of time. Along with this reality comes the constant fear of finances and lack there of.
If you can donate any
amount to help Judith as she embarks on this treatment it will be most appreciated. All funds will go directly to Judith.
For those that live nearby she lives in, JEFFERSON PARK,
she'll also need meals as well as transportation to and from doctors. If you let me know, we could form a plan for any meals and rides.
As a flight attendant group, we've always rallied when the call goes out for one of our own.
This is "the call for Judith."The need is real, the need is now and it's at her doorstep.
Let's help keep the wolf at bay and make sure she has what she needs. It's a very scary time for her and on her own is even worse. I know we can do it. We're great in a crisis situation, that's who we are. Let's band together and help Judith in her crisis. It will take all of us.
Please feel free to share with anyone and everyone.
I'll keep posting updates as she progresses with her treatments.!
Thank you to all who help in any way possible.
