March 25, 2014 - Nursing students raising funds for fellow student battling cancer by selling bracelets
Jessica Girard is a dear friend of ours and a member of our nursing class. She is extremely passionate and warm hearted friend, who makes an impact on every person she meets.
At the age of 20, she was unfortunately diagnosed on December 27th 2012 with a rare form of stage 4 colon cancer (Signet Ring Adenocarcinoma). Shortly after her diagnosis, Jessica learnt that the cancer had spread to reproductive organs. Jessica has spent the majority of the past year and a half in hospitals for multiple surgeries and chemotherapy treatments.
In January of 2014, Jessica was declared in remission. Three weeks later Jessica received tragic news described by her as a day where her world stopped in its tracks, as she was re-diagnosed with cancer. Since this re-diagnosis Jessica has spent almost everyday in the hospital in and outside of Canada. She is currently traveling back and forth from Windsor to London receiving treatments.
Myself and Ellen Roulston will be selling two types of blue colon cancer awareness bracelets to raise money to help provide some financial support through this hard time. 100% of the proceeds from these bracelets go directly to her and her family. Please look into your hearts and help the Girard family support Jessica through her journey.
