Help Joanna Whitson-Thomas "Dodo" fight cancer. Donating to Dodo's fund will help pay for medical treatments and living expenses.

On May 6th 2011, at the age of 40, Dodo was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. Then on May 7th 2011, doctors gave her the horrible news that the cancer was not only in her lungs but it was literally spread throughout her entire body and was inoperable. Not only was this a terrible shock because she had never smoked a day in her life, stayed away from drugs and lead a healthy life style but a serious blow to her and her family. In August of 2010 less than a year prior to her diagnosis Dodo and her amazing husband, Prentice Thomas, were blessed with her only child Nathaniel. All she ever wanted in life was to be a mother but was told it would be nearly impossible for her conceive so Nathaniel was nothing short of a miracle. Now because of this horrible disease her dreams of motherhood are being pulled away from her once again. Dodo has under gone several treatments of radiation to the brain, twelve treatments of radiation to the abdomen, and many rounds of chemo. Doctors have wanted to send her to hospice multiple times, given her the "this is the end" speech countless times but Dodo keeps on fighting. Unfortunately her insurance company doesn't quite understand the term "Never give up", and are going to stop paying for treatments. Dodo doesn't want to stop fighting and she shouldn't have to. Together, we can fight with her. Please help Dodo fight for her life, every penny counts. Let Dodo and her family know she isn't fighting alone. You can also help by donating to the American Cancer Society through Relay for life.
