The friends and colleagues of Patti are uniting to raise money to help her battle against pancreatic cancer. Please show your support!

She has been the stalwart champion for all of us: whether it has been her formulative nurturing of our preschoolers, or the source of guidance to the YWCA Princeton's Childcare programs. Personally and professionally, for decades, Patti has been the continual supply of loving and level-headed advice, tutelage and guidance.

Now she needs the support of all of us.

After almost a year of declining health and five benign cancer diagnoses, Patti finally got the news that she does indeed have cancer of the pancreas. With continued weight loss and in weakened condition Patti's body is doing its utmost to withstand the chemotherapy treatments aimed at staving off her disease.

She is tremendously grateful for all of the cards, gifts and meals she has received. Each and every one, along with your well-wishes and prayers, is helping her cope as she proceeds with this new stage of her life that is centered around getting her better from this horrible disease.

Patti's friends know that in addition to the physical and emotional stresses, there is a great financial toll this disease is taking. There are many co-pays that must be shelled out, along with portions of her medical expenses that for one reason or another are not covered by her insurance.

There are so many of you who have asked what more you can do.

Here is a way you can help Patti.

Any contribution you can make will help Patti with her medical bills. Our dream would be to collect enough donations to meet her out-of-pocket expenses. And perhaps with enough luck and love, maybe exceed that amount with funds left over for Patti to be able to treat herself to a special luxury to celebrate her recuperation, such as a massage, or a meal at her favorite restaurant.

Please consider making a donation through this website. If you prefer to write a check, please make it payable to Patti Preston and mail it to the attention of Susan Cheuk, YWCA Princeton, 59 Paul Robeson Place, Princeton, NJ 08540.

Together our love and gifts will help our friend who has done so much to help so many of us, our children and our community.
