My name is Foster J Sayers III (Joey to my sister) and my sister is Jaime VanOrden. Jaime is thirty-three years old and lives in Zion, PA. She is married to Bill VanOrden and has a son, Jackson, that turned two in August.
Jaime was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of 2011. In April her diagnosis changed to stage four breast cancer when they found tumors in her liver where her cancer had metastasized. She began chemotherapy in the late spring and continued treatments throughout the summer with little success. She has since begun endocrine therapy and the results of her first check up (in early December) since beginning those treatments showed her tumors shrinking.
The doctors believe her cancer is treatable, but that she has a long road ahead of her.
My sister means a lot to not only me but so many people. I'm starting this campaign to make sure that all she has to focus on is getting well and beating cancer.
Treating cancer is expensive, even with health insurance there are still significant costs to bear. I know my sister has what it takes to beat cancer and I don't want to see financial considerations impact her ability to get well. Please know that your donation is going to help save the life of someone.
What We Need & What You Get
I'm endeavoring to raise $10,000. This campaign ends in February, the one year anniversary of her diagnosis. I hope to commemorate her one year anniversary as a cancer survivor with a gift from all of you. All the money raised through this campaign will go directly to my sister and will be used to cover the costs of her ongoing treatments, care and medicine and expenses related to traveling back and forth to Fox Chase in Philadelphia from her home in Zion, PA.
For your donation you get the satisfaction of knowing that you personally made a difference in someone's life, that you helped her beat a horrible disease and helped ensure that her son will grow up with a mother that loves him with all her heart. I cannot think of a more noble cause to put your money toward. And of course, you will receive the eternal gratitude of my sister, her family and friends.
