Support Janet Appleby's Battle With Cancer

As many of you know, Janet was recently diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer that has metastasized to her brain and other vital organs. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming and for that reason we have dedicated this page for donations to help Janet and her family with medical, food, travel, and treatment expenses during this time. 

You may know Janet or perhaps not but as her older sister I do know her well.  She is the kind of friend that goes out of her way to help others.  She lives her life with her arms wide open! She is a friend to all.  She is kind and empathetic.  She works hard. She gives generously to her community and spends time as a volunteer with a number of charitable groups. She is unable to do these things right now but hopes that she will do so once again.  She is a force to reckon with and is fighting the fight of her life right now.  We can help her keep her focus on her health. The pandemic has made it a long year for many of us and here is an opportunity to have an incredibly positive impact on the life of a friend. 

Donating to her cause is a way that you can help her see a brighter light at the end of the tunnel.  If you have the means to give, even just a little, please do. If you can't give right now, please share this on your social media pages. I will be posting updates and progress soon.  I welcome your stories, memories and love of Janet.

With love and appreciation,

Julia Johnson, the big sister
