I met Joy Suzzette McHugh when she was just 18 years old and full of life. After not hearing from her for almost 20 years we connected via Facebook. Come to find out she has been suffering for the last several years with a rare form of Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer.
Suzzette is a single mom of two beautiful daughters. To see them go through this with their mom is saddening. One daughter is only 10 years old. The other is trying to make her way through college.
Suzzette was diagnosed in 2016 with Stage 3 Colorectal Cancer. She battled it for a year with chemotherapy and radiation. She was diagnosed again with Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer that moved into the lymp nodes in 2018 and she battled it once again with chemotherapy and radiation. She finished all procedures in February 2019. After doing a PET scan last month they found that the cancer has moved into her lungs. What was once a fight that seemed victorious has come back again and this time its life or death.
Suzzette is in need of advanced medical procedures. Since 2016 she has barely made bills and is now completely out of money. If she doesn't get the support she needs she may not be with us in the coming months.
We are requesting immediate funds to assist with all aspects of treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and to help support her two children. She has not been able to generate any income during this period of time and friends and family are exhausted on funding. We need others to help support her and her family.
Any small donation would go a long way to help support Suzzette's condition and to help her two girls.
