Brendan and Jana are married cancer survivors. They have both beaten cancer THREE times. Each. To combat a serious life threatening side effect of the cancer treatments, Jana needs an expensive medicine (it's available and approved) only found in Germany. The medicine alone costs $8000. This fundraiser will help pay for the medication, flights and living expenses. They hope to be able to travel in January 2013. "Get busy livin'!" is their personal motto.

Brendan was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 1995 & had a bone marrow transplant in 2002 & is now cancer free. Jana met Brendan in 1996 & they fell in love. Friends tried to discourage Jana from getting involved with Brendan, but love won & they married in 1998. Jana was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 & has been receiving treatment since. She had a 3rd diagnosis in Feb 2012 & was told there was no treatment left for them, so they sought treatment in Germany & are paying for it themselves. The treatment is called Whole Body Hyperthermia & helps chemo be more effective. They've sold everything they can to pay for it. Jana has responded well to the treatment, but still needs more care. It’s rare for anyone to survive this type of prolonged illness, let alone for a couple to remain together, but they have and their love has only deepened. Here is a link to her website, which needs a total overhaul:
