Lenten Giving: Help Nancy

Nancy & her son Marques

Looking to donate a little latte money for a good cause? Help Nancy Pont Du Jour, who I've known since elementary school, in her battle against cancer:

"In February 2009, Nancy Point Du Jour was diagnosed with a very rare form of Cancer that causes Neuroendocrine Tumors to form. Some examples of Neuroendocrine tumors are Carcinoid tumors, Islet cell tumors, Medullary thyroid Carcinomas, etc. As a result, she has undergone 2 rounds of chemotherapy that has proven to be effective. However the battle is still not over!


Currently, Nancy has been accepted into a clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center located in Manhattan, NY. The good news is that this current chemotherapy regimen is very effective and tolerable. The bad news is she has to travel from Florida to New York at least once a month to receive this treatment.


Nancy is a great friend, and a sister to us all and excellent mom to Marques. Let's take this opportunity to support her in winning her fight against cancer! All of your generous donations, thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated."

 Even if you only have five bucks to spare, every cent counts! To donate, click here.
