Maralyn McMinn cancer support fund
My mother has always been dedicated to me and my three siblings, and it has been amazing to see her as a grandmother sharing that love and dedication to my two children. In the past 10 years, she has also been committed to a healthy lifestyle – devoted to clean eating, supplementation, cleansing, detoxifying and making all the smart choices that are supposed to prevent this horrible disease. Her organic living and zero history of cancer in our family, makes this diagnosis even more shocking! But, just as she has always done, she's ready to face this head-on so she can continue moving forward – stronger than ever!
My mom is also one of the toughest people I know. As a single mother raising 4 kids on her own, she sometimes had to work 2 to 3 jobs to make ends meet. She gave birth to 3 out of her 4 children with NO pain meds (by choice)! When she was in labor with me, the doctors had to inform her when she was contracting because she was barely bothered by the pain. However, sometimes those of us with a tough exterior and really high tolerance for pain are most pained when asking for help. But she needs it – we need it – and we appreciate the support now, more than ever. Our goal is to help relieve some of her financial stress as she undergoes treatment with her family in Chicago over the next several months. All donations will directly help my mom cover costs that are incurred during her treatment and recovery so she can solely focus on her health and well being.
Thank you so much for reading and for your support. We appreciate it more than you know. Really.
Please share with anyone who knows our mom.
With sincerest thanks,
Jill & Jay Jarvis (Jolie & Julia)
You're support has helped all of us, but especially our mom. I believe it's why she has recovered so well because she was able to just truly focus on her health.
She still will be receiving antibody drug therapy treatment for quite some time to keep her in remission, but the side effects are minimal and she'll start feeling a lot better really soon. In other words, buh-bye chemo!
Thanks again for your love and support. Keep our mom's continued good health in your thoughts.
As can only be expected from a woman of my mom's strength, she has been tolerating everything well so far. As I write this, she is just finishing her 2nd infusion and so far so good. She is already noticing dramatic results! Please share this with anyone who knows our mom and keep the postive energy flowing her way... It's working!
Wonderful news!! You're still in my prayers, Maralyn.
Way to go Maralyn. I have been wondering how you are doing. It's great to hear the good news. What a relief. Will keep sending positive thoughts your way.
Wonderful news, I am soooo happy to hear this!!
Thinking of you Maralyn, sending well wishes your way!
