Community Rallies To Help Mother Fighting Stage 4 Cancer
Phil Paleologos and I had the privilege of emceeing an amazing rock and roll show this weekend. It was a benefit concert for a young mother who is battling stage 4 cancer. Amy Mayberry had already beaten breast cancer when she got more devastating news a year later after she fell and fractured her back. Doctors had found another tumor in her spine. She underwent more surgery to get rid of the tumor and her broken vertebrae. Doctoes then fused her spine together with two metal rods during an eight-hour operation in September. Needless to say, Amy has been unable to return to her work as a pharmacy technician.
Her husband Shawn is working hard at Jordan Hospital, but with Amy still unable to work, credit cards bills are mounting up fast.
That's why it was so nice to see so many people turn out at Plymouth Memorial Hall this weekend in support of this local family. A Journey tribute band named "Scarab" was followed by the Bon Jovi tribute band "Living On A Bad Name".
If you'd like to give to this family, a paypal account has been set up. Giving can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org on paypal.
While her cancer is advanced, and doctors labeling it as "incurable", Amy says she has every intention of seeing her 5 year old daughter, Brooke graduate from high school and get married. This young mother realizes the odds are stacked against her, but she has every intention of beating them.
