We have recently been informed that one of our members is in need of our help. Jennifer Small, head custodian at Bonnie McBeth/District Office, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon cancer this past October. She has since undergone surgery to remove the cancer from her colon as well as a portion of her liver. She tried to return to work in March while undergoing chemotherapy but was told by her medical team that trying to go back to work due to the nature of her job was not in her best interest at this time.

The family is asking for your help to defray the costs incurred for the COBRA insurance to cover her medical expenses. They have set up a GOFUNDME page to help raise money to pay for the coverage. Their goal is to raise $10,000 and so far they have had commitments for over $2,000. Here’s the link to that page:

We ask that you help our member in any way you can. Please donate what you can to help her and her family out during this difficult time. As of this date they do not know when she will be able to return to work.

Thank you for any help you can give,

Your Executive Board
