In the news
In 2010 my father died from cancer. In 2015 I lost my sister Kathy to lung cancer, and in 2017 I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.
By the time I was diagnosed the cancer had spread to my brain, kidney and hip. Treatment has included 2 brain surgeries, 70 plus sessions of radiation, 2 clinical trials, chemotherapy and now immune therapy.
My family has been through a lot, but sometimes I say this is the best thing that ever happened to me. I wouldn’t have made it this far without the support of my family and friends.
For Christmas in 2020 I decided to make replicas of the ducks my father had made as gifts for my kids, relatives and friends. I received a lot of additional requests for these ducks from people who saw them so, I decided to “pay it forward” for all the love, prayers and support I have received during this battle by making them and donating over half the proceeds going to the Chemo Bag Project and Lucy’s Love Bus.
The remainder is used to purchase more materials.
