My mom, Leanne Bantelman Brunson, began her battle with melanoma in 1998. She was blessed to live for 11 years after her first diagnosis which I am very greatful for. She had many years of survivorship and would have benefited greatly from a survivorship program, which did not exist in 2009 when she went to her Heavenly home.
I am thankful that the JP Wilmot Cancer Center and Judy's fund are launching a survivorship program for people like my mom, Courageous Warriors! I would like to support Judy's Fund and the survivorship program in memory of my Mom, Grandpa Rudy, Grandma Jane, and Aunt Rose who battled their cancers like Heroic Warriors and to honor my Uncle Al, Aunt Carol, and Linda who continue their survivorship journey each day! Mom, may your legacy live on!
