Jody lost her mother to cancer when she was 10 years old. She has since lost a number of family members due to cancer in the past few years. Family is extremely important to Jody. She does everything possible to make sure that her family is cared for. Jody spent ~ 12 hours most days helping to care for her sister who was in palliative care. Since then, her sister has passed away and Jody has taken in her sister’s 3 children – “they are not just staying here, they are family.” It’s been a rough year for Jody, but we are happy to report that we were able to lift her spirits thanks to the generous support of our community.
