Our mother, Joyce Tirondola, from Toms River NJ, was diagnosed with breast cancer early 2013 .   She had a mastectomy and was cancer free for 15 months.  In October of  2014 we discovered that the cancer was back and had metastasized to her liver and spine.  Over the past 3 years Joyce has had multiple rounds of oral and intravenous chemotherapy with little success.  The most recent scans are showing progression of the cancer.  Her doctors are seeking treatment through a clinical trial of T-cell therapy out of The National Institute of Health in Bethesda, MD.  She will receive four months worth of intense treatment and will spend time both in and out of the hospital.  We are hoping she will receive evaluation within the next few days.

Joyce will be unable to work during this time and their resources are limited.  Money will be needed to maintain their current living expenses (rent, car, food, bills, etc.) as well as  assist with travel, food, lodging, and medical expenses while they are in Maryland.  We continue to pray for a miracle and ask for help from all of those that have been touched by our Angel.  Any amount is a blessing.  Joyce's son, Guy Tirondola will be responsible for all withdrawals and delivery of donation's to his mother Joyce Tirondola.
