About two years ago I was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer called Hodgkin's s Lymphoma. I was 23 at the time and it was frightening for me and my family. By the Grace of God, I was showered with an abundance of prayers and support from people some whom I'd never met before. This meant so much to me and my family. I want Joanna and her family to receive the same love and support that I did, because it makes all the difference in the world.
Our dear Joanna, a beloved wife, mother, clergy wife/daughter, and hospice nurse, was recently diagnosed with invasive ductal breast cancer. She will begin receiving chemotherapy within the next week or two and, eventually, she will undergo a masectomy and prolonged immunotherapy treatments. Because Joanna will be unable to work during her treatment, we are collecting funds to aid Joanna and her family during this difficult time. Our goal is to relieve Joanna and her family of financial stress so she can focus on her recovery.
This page will be updated regularly with updates on Joanna's health. Let's shower her with love and support! We love you JoJo!!
Donations will be collected by Joanna's husband, Eric Townsend. Please keep the Townsend family in your prayers.
