Gathering together to raise the funds for the celebration of Jane Youngs' life.


Jane was misdiagnosed in September 2008 for hemorrhoids. After months of being treated for the wrong illness, she decided to get a second opinion where she learned that she had stage four colorectcal cancer. Jane has put up a good fight against her disease. She has gone through numerous surgeries including her rectum, liver, lungs, intestines and brain. She has also gone through several types of chemo and raditation the entire four years. Throughout all of her treatments she has been extremely optimistic and has always been deteremined to keep going. Despite all of this, the treatments have now taken a toll on her body and she is too weak to endure any more. She is comfortable at home in her own environment with Crisis Care provided by Hospice of the comforter. Jane was born September 10, 1960. She turned 52 in the hospital after suffering a seizure due to the return of a brain tumor. She has two daughters (25 and 27) and one son (23). She was also blessed with 3 grandchildren (7, 5 and 3). She just celebrated her 22nd anniversary with her spouse Tom on September 10th. Jane has a strong faith that we believe has helped her through her rough battle. Although she's never feared "going to be with her Lord" she has held on for her family knowing that she is the glue that holds us together. As Jane is reaching the last few days of her battle with cancer, the family is reaching out for help to fund the celebration of Jane's life. With all of her medical bills and Jane being unable to work for the past 3 1/2 years, she didn't have the means to pay funeral costs. Any type of donations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless.
