Amanda Charron and Family

This summer our dear friend Amanda Charron was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer at the age of 29. According to the recommendation by her oncology team Amanda is currently undergoing chemotherapy, which will be followed by mastectomy, radiation and a hysterectomy to prevent the cancer from metastasizing elsewhere, along with reconstructive surgery after she has begun healing. 

Amanda is the beloved wife to husband Nick and mother to her two children, Chloe, age 11 and Ellington, age 3, so this unexpected and devastating diagnosis does not only affect her,  but her loving family as well.

Those who know Amanda know she is a devoted mother and works tirelessly to give her children a beautiful life. She also sets a wonderful example of what a truly caring person does to make the world a better place, helping her daughter raise money to aid in research for childhood cancer in the past and crocheting mermaid blankets for children receiving treatment in local hospitals even as she undergoes chemotherapy herself. 

It is through hardships like the one Amanda is experiencing that allow us to reciprocate the kindness and love that radiate from  Amanda and her family. It is in this charitable spirit that many have expressed their desire to help Amanda and her family in any way they can, so we have decided to set up this campaign to assist them through this difficult time. 

All proceeds donated will help fund additional medical expenses that insurance does not cover, which includes genetic testing that Amanda must have done. The donations collected will also help to ease the family’s financial burden as Amanda’s husband Nick must take unpaid work leave so that he may be as supportive as possible to her and their family during this trying time. 

The generous donations will be extra support for the Charron family and be greatly appreciated during an especially stressful season of their lives as Amanda begins her long journey to healing.
