A caring, dedicated oncology nurse, N. quickly was in desperate need of assistance when she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.

N. was 35 when she was diagnosed with Stage 4 aggressive breast cancer. With four young children aged 2 to 7, she was unable to work when her treatment protocol began. Her husband had to cut back hours as a welder to a bare minimum to be available for their young children and ailing wife. Quickly this self-sufficient young family found themselves in financial distress. A Lemonade Fund grant helped relieve the financial burden, enabling the family to focus on the time they had together.  Sadly. N. passed away a short time later.
