"I am a mother of two. I have a 5yr.old and a 16 yr.old. I found out I had late stage breast cancer in June 2005. I have gone though multiple rounds chemo and radiation. I do not have any extra spending money because of me out of work my husband is working over time to try and make ends meet. I too know what it is like to have the fear of leaving a child without a parent. I know what it is like not to be able to share time with the family. The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation is a God-send. Oh my goodness, what a special organization. I may not survive, but now the memories will. I hope wealthy people support this Foundation so other children can better remember their Mom (and father)."
