Team Jill's Fight Fund
Jill is an amazing person, mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. Her strength and resilience is inspiring, and her resolve is steadfast. To look the belly of this beast in the eye for the third time in 10 years - while only being in her 40's - is unimaginable. With everyone's help, we can make this most difficult of situations more bearable in some ways.
Jill and Derek are extremely appreciative of everyone's kindness, love and support, and Team Jill would like to thank you for your thoughtful and generous donation.
"The kindness and generosity shown to us by everyone leaves us feeling so blessed and loved every minute of the day. My emotions have been up and down, but mostly up because of ALL of you. It's so hard to thank so many individually, so I hope this FB status captures all at least. Thankful for the meals from neighborhood families this week and the meal train...wow...the doctors want me to gain weight, well I know I will now! Received a special gift the other night from Kassie’s soccer team and former soccer team families with a special card written by each girl, and a generous donation made to the GoFund...which is amazing beyond words. Last night I received a special card from Kyle's hockey Northern Cyclones team for twice a month cleaning for my house! Talk about what makes a girl happy = a clean house! Derek and I were so stunned and appreciative. The employees I work with or even just say hello to in the halls...and some I don't know at all... we have received Stop & Shop gift cards and they set up Pea Pod to have food delivered for us. WOW! The rides to appointments, people stopping by, the phone calls, the texts, the emails...I may not be able to respond to them all right away, but I do read them. Electronics can be over-stimulating right now. Today I am going for another radiation treatment, followed by a follow-up with the radiation oncologist at LGH, as well as discuss the results of my PET Scan from yesterday. Please pray that this beast didn't spread... Tomorrow is a big day. Meeting with Mass General for a 2nd opinion with a highly recommended Breast Cancer Oncologist. It's going to be a longgggg day. I love you all with all my heart. My kids and my husband are also so appreciative of all the love and support they have received as well. Trying to keep normalcy in the household as best I can."
To all my friends and family out there on FB, I am reaching out to you. My sister Jill had fought Breast Cancer in 2005 she fought so hard to beat it , so very hard for years, she was a survivor for years. But now as of October 30th 2015, she learned that her Cancer was back, but now it's metastasized to her Brain!!!!!!! So now she has the biggest battle of her life. She is the most loving sister , Mom , wife, Auntie, Daughter, and she is one of the strongest person I know. How much can one person take!!!!!!! So I am reaching out to you all , please check out this " Go-fund me site. This was started in efforts to help if you can, with a donation towards the medical bills , now with the loss of income, now that she has started radiation every day. So with everyone's help in with maybe a donation but most of all your prayers, Definitely!!!!
