02-10-12: Please see 'Updates' section for messages and updates that occur during the fundraiser. Especially for the 'Thank You' sent from Jeanne!

This event has been created for an AMAZING woman who has touched the lives of so many people in such a positive way….Mrs. Jeanne Fisher-Wokurka. Jeanne is a wonderful mother to daughter Emma-3, son Nate-13 and wife to Tom Wokurka, as well as a strong small business owner.

On September 9th 2011 Jeanne was diagnosed with breast cancer. During this very trying time Jeanne has managed to be so graceful and keep a very up-beat and positive attitude, inspiring everyone and anyone who knows her. She is facing this bump in the road head on, and determined to overcome it!!
During her treatment she has had an amazing group of followers, supporters and cheerleaders in her corner fighting and praying every step of the way! In return Jeanne has inspired and instilled in all of us her infectious grace, strength, wisdom and positivity!

The financial burden of her treatment has become overwhelming due to the cost of ‘specialty’ medications necessary for her to fight the best fight she can, and insurance hasn’t been much of a help. The type of breast cancer she has is called HER-2; this is a very aggressive form of breast cancer that requires the specialty drug Herceptin to be infused each week for 12 months, and is necessary for her treatment. This is considered a specialty drug and the cost of it is very expensive. She has undergone 5 chemo treatments, has one more to go, then surgery and following that radiation.

That being said I would like to pay it forward by taking this opportunity to provide all of her friends, family, loved ones and followers a place to donate funds in order to help Jeanne receive the best medical care there is out there so she can continue to BEAT THIS!! All funds will be given to Wokurka family to help cover medical expenses as well as any other financial obligations the family may incur during this trying time.

A HUGE THANK YOU in advance to all who open their hearts and help donate!! If you don’t mind, please contact me with your info and I will be sure to send a special thank you to all who participate!
