Help Joanie Fight Breast Cancer

Many of you who know and love Joanie know of her fierce strength, determination and willingness to tackle anything that threatens to get in the way of what she wants or needs. You know of her honesty and the loving commitment that she cares for her friends and family. She would give the shirt off her back to anyone in need.  In July of 2022, Joanie was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She was immediately scheduled for surgery and underwent a full mastectomy of the right breast. During surgery, it was discovered that the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes in her right armpit, so they had to be removed as well.  While she is slowly trying to recuperate from this physically and emotionally taxing experience, she was informed that she would need months of chemotherapy and radiation, since the cancer was rather aggressive and the chances of recurrence are high. I'm sure we all know that this means, in terms of her health, she has a long road ahead of her. But it also, unfortunately, means months of being unable to work or provide due to the numerous serious side effects of chemotherapy. She will be further saddled with the financial burden that comes in the aftermath of being diagnosed with breast cancer. With all she is going through, the loss of income and additional uncovered medical expenses, we know that many of you who love Joanie, want to help but aren't sure how. We hope this will give you a way to participate in caring for her through this challenging time and alleviate some of the financial stress in the months ahead. No one should have to worry about finances while fighting cancer.  Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness in Joanie's time of need.
