From Judi's daughter, Jennifer -
On August 25th, my mother, Judi, was diagnosed with an extremely rare type of cancer called leiomyosarcoma ("LMS"). This cancer effects only 4 out of a million people.
Last year, Judi was laid off and does not have health insurance. She is only 62 years old and does not qualify for Medi-Cal and/or Medicare. You can only imagine how overwhelmed our family feels financially and emotionally. We would like to have this fundraiser in order to help pay for some of her medical expenses (cost of surgery, CT scans, MRIs, treatments, etc.). There will be a raffle and lots of cool gifts and prizes. Please come show your support for this amazing and beautiful woman!!
If you or anyone you know would like to donate gifts that can be raffled off as prizes or donate directly to my mom, please visit Judi Poag Ward's LMS Fundraiser The smallest donations would be so greatly appreciated!!
Update - Surgery presently scheduled for October 22nd.
Many of you knew Judi; most were aware she had a very rare cancer; and some contributed to the fundraiser to help defray her medical expenses.
Unfortunately, Judi died very late last evening, due to complications from the cancer surgery, performed about 2 weeks ago.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Lyn Viles '66,
