Juanita's Memorial Fund

Juanita is a 40 year old single mother of 3 who was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer in March of 2017. Prior to her diagnosis, she was a full-time student pursuing a Bachelors of Nursing Degree. Since March, she has undergone 14 chemo therapy cycles and responded well to the treatments. Her latest evaluation confirms she is an excellent candidate for as procedure known as HIPEC. She intends to have the operation at the end of January if she can raise enough money to offset some of the expenses not covered by her insurance. The procedure requires an extended hospital stay with a long period of recovery. Her medical expenses will be significant but this is her best chance for survival. She humbly asks you to donate whatever you can so she will have a fighting chance against this terrible disease. All donations will go toward medical expenses. Please share with everyone you know. God Bless and Thank you!
