Terry Castagna's Medical Fund

Recently a few of Terry Castagna's friends got together and  we started talking about our shared hope of raising funds to offset the cost of her hospital bills. For those who know and love Terry she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in December of 2016. She spent the first half of 2017 undergoing extensive chemotherapy. Her fight continued until the end of 2017 with monthly treatments. In 2018 she will continue on with a preventive medication in hopes her cancer doesnt return.  During 2017 Terry had to receive injections to boost her immune system.  These injections became an out of pocket expense totaling over $10,000.   For those who know Terry she is always too modest to ask for help, however as her friends we know that she needs to accept the help.  She was also too proud to ever show when the cancer was wearing her down.  We want to take this added stress away from her and allow her to focus on staying healthy. If you don't know Terry, she has always and will always go the extra mile for her family and friends.  Also as a school social worker she is the person who advocates for the needs of our students at WHS. In a nutshell, Terry takes care of everyone in the most unselfish way. In all our years of knowing her, she has never put herself first. So as her friends, we want her to know she doesn't have to do this alone. We want to show her that we cherish her and that it is time for us to take care of her. We are so grateful for all your prayers, love, and any support you can give. Thank you.
