Janet has pancreatic cancer. She has worked all of her life and raised two sons alone. Janet is a fighter and she always has been. I am her friend. I have known Janet almost all of my life and we are now in our fifties. When she was in Jr. High school and I was in elementary she used to save me a seat on the bus. I remember when she showed me how to iron my hair straight . The next trend we went through was to roll our long straight hair on big cans at night to get curls in it. When I had my first child I named him after Janet's son...I loved her. She always took up for me as we were growing up and it only seemed natural when in 1989 when I was diagnosed with cancer that Janet came to my rescue. She was at my side through the chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Janet is the type of friend who wrapped all of her beautiful long hair, that we had straightened and curled those many years ago, in a turbin because I no longer had any hair. Then she put a matching turbin on my hairless head and took me by the hand. We were in this thing together.
Many years have passed and the tables are turned and now Janet has a need. She has rising medical costs and living expenses in addition to this burden she alone has to carry.
Please help us, her family and friends, to lighten this load by donating what you can. Janet needs someone to take care of her like she always took care of me.
