Family, friends, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation are pulling their resources to help Shirley defeat breast cancer.

On September 11, 2012 (my parents 32nd anniversary) my mother, Shirley Nash, was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer. Unfortunately, there is more unnerving news to this story. A week later, my father (along with 75 other employees) was laid off after his employer was sold to another corporation. My father has been feverishly looking for new employment to ensure that my mother will have medical insurance to cover her treatment. As of 10/18/12 neither of the above situations has changed and time is quickly running out. Susan G. Komen has stepped in to help my family as much as they are able to, but we still need additional financial help. My family has always been able to take care of themselves and this is the first time we have ever needed to look to others for financial assistance. This truly is a perfect storm of circumstances that have converged at the worst possible time. I am asking for any help that you are able to give. My mother has always been a compassionate women who dedicated her life to helping others in need and I am hoping there are people who will help her in a great time of need. My name is Joel Nash and my email is Even if your help comes in the form of a possible job lead that is much appreciated. My father has more than 40 years of sales and management experience in print and online media. Thank you for taking time to read this and God Bless.
