Supporters For Yvonne
Organized by: Kimberlee Joyner
Cancer is a scary word for those of us who have not been diagnosed with it but imagine how difficult it is for someone who actually has to come to terms with having it and the decisions for treatment and the future. Yvonne Gaines has one of the scarier cancers because hers is aggressive and of all places it is located in the frontal lobe of her brain. The financing for the extensive procedures and treatments she is facing is short of unbearable and financing is the last thing you want to face when wondering your next move in a game of life you have never played. Yvonne is a not just another person with cancer to me, she is my aunt, my crazy aunt that laughs at everything and sees the good in people and goes out of her way to be there for her family and friends. She gives of herself to others on a daily basis. She loves the outdoors and her garden, she loves her cats and she takes care of them like they were her own children, she is always taking care of someone or something, she has never been afraid to do things at the spur of the moment, she loves birds, she loves her piano and her music, she loves treasure hunting at thrift shops, flea markets, and Goodwill Stores, but more than all of the things I just mentioned... She loves her family and friends more. She is our strong supporter standing with us at all times and that soft place to land when the skies get dark in our lives. She has been there in one way or another or for some of us she has been there in many ways and its time to show her that we are here for her now more than ever in her crucial and critical time of need. Think for a moment of someone you adorable, someone valuable to you, someone that you don't ever want to live without, someone that you call your best friend, well Yvonne is all of those in one to many people. She is a loyal wife, giving and loving mother, supportive stepmother, wonderful daughter, beloved aunt, cool grandmother and great-aunt, kind sister, and great mother-in-law. Yvonne also touches the hearts of her friends in many ways with her selfless acts of service also. I will be sure to give updates on her status and prognosis as the results from the doctors come in. More than your money we need your prayers. Money means nothing without her but it will help fund the best treatments so that can we be that much closer to the miracle we are desperately praying for. Thank you all for agreeing to be Supporters For Yvonne!
