This past week, at just 38 years old, Joy was diagnosed with breast cancer. After meeting with oncologist, Joy and her family have decided the best plan of treatment is a double mastectomy with reconstructive surgery. Joy faces possibly two procedures and 10-12 weeks of recovery time after these procedures. Joy and her family are facing a significant amount of medical bills as well as lost wages.
This is the third time that Joy's family has been touched by cancer. Her son had it as a baby and her dad had breast cancer three years ago. As many of you know, Joy is one of the kindest, giving people. She is the first person to step up and help someone in need. She will do anything to support others and has been a pillar of strength for friends and family as they have faced difficult times. It's time to come together and help her and her family as she fights this battle.
Please consider donating to help the Rester family. This will help take one of their worries away. The funds will be used to pay for medical and household bills while Joy recovers. All funds will go directly to the family. Thoughts, prayers and well wishes are always welcome!
If you are interested in supporting the Rester family in other ways, please let me know. We are doing a bowling fundraiser on January 19th at Wonderland Lanes. Many have reached out to help with dinners. I will be happy to help organize this effort!
