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

Jane is the dedicated mother of two children while simultaneously completing her nursing degree. January 2012, with just 14 weeks of intense schooling remaining, Jane was unfortunately diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma breast cancer. February 7th, 2012 she endured surgery to remove the cancerous mass and some sentinel lymph nodes and will begin radiation treatment after healing from surgery.

Due to her status as a student, Jane’s health insurance is incredibly basic. Each office visit will have a significant co-pay; each additional procedure, lab visit etc will incur costs due to a high deductible. Her extraordinarily supportive husband, Frank, will accompany Jane to her visits as well as aid in her recovery and inevitably miss work. Even while facing the perils of cancer, surgery, radiation and recovery, Jane also chooses to finish the journey she started two hectic years ago: finishing her classes, clinicals and exams and earning her degree to be a Registered Nurse. (Did I mention she is homeschooling two children?)

Many of you are asking what can be done to help. A friend of mine recommended that I setup a fundraiser on a charitable website to reduce the financial burdens and stress that accompany breast cancer.
We can all keep Jane and her family in our thoughts, but we can also do more to help reduce one of the biggest stressors in her life…money.

If you have any questions or would like to speak to a family representative please feel free to call: Valerie Armendariz at
