My sister in law, Jane Wolf Price, was diagnosed with breast cancer this spring. With lots of testing, Jane and her husband, my brother, Evan Price, decided on a lumpectomy and the surgery was successful. However, with the aggressive form of cancer, she has to undergo chemo every 3 weeks for one year. She has 3 treatments under her belt with 9 left to go. She has such a sensitive stomach that the first two treatments resulted in trips to the ER to re-hydrate. Along with going for chemo on Wednesday, she then goes to hydration infusions on Friday and Monday following her chemo. The extra time this takes, the gas to drive from Pellston to Petoskey, has made finances pretty tight. Jane works for Butcher & Butcher construction in their office and is working as often as her body allows. Starting in January, on top of chemo, Jane will undergo radiation 5 days a week. As we head toward the holidays, a little extra money would really boost their spirits. Jane, nor my brother, would ask for this on their own. I'm hoping you will consider them this month... especially that October is breast cancer awareness!
