The family and friends of Jenny Franco are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

Mark Twain said, “Spirit has fifty times the strength and staying power of brawn and muscle,” and this couldn't be more true about my aunt Jenny. Spirit, strength,and staying power are just a few of the infinite amount of words that perfectly describe one of the most important and influential people in my life. Jenny Franco, my mother’s youngest sister, has been an enormous influence to many people in many ways.

During her battle with breast cancer, my Aunt Jenny always managed to keep a smile on her face, pep in her step, and that zest for life that has become her trademark. Her spirit always managed to outshine whatever inner turmoil she was enduring. She managed, in her time of most need, to be the rock for the rest of my family She fought that cancer, and she fought it with all of her heart, and many of her family members hearts as well.

Her strength and courage during those most difficult times have led her to be cancer free, but as one battle ends, another battle begins. While battling cancer, bills accumulate. My aunt has always been a hard worker and has done her best work in helping to provide for her family. Although she is recuperating and will be back to her healthy self again, the limited hours of work, backed up bills, and general tiredness from her body’s healing, the feelings of not being able to catch up would bring anyone down. Not my aunt Jenny. She works as hard as she can despite her setbacks (as usual), and does the best that she can to be make ends meet.

She’s not the only one in on the fight. Aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins all get together and hold fundraising events to help raise money in hopes to help alleviate some of the financial burden that has become as cancerous as the cancer itself. From raffle tickets, yard sales, cook outs, and events to come, again, my Aunt Jenny has managed to take such a negative situation and turn it into something positive. If anyone deserves a helping hand, it’s the beautiful, genuine, incomparable soul known as no other than Jenny Franco.

Jenny's niece,
