Imagine having Stage IV bile duct cancer and being the healthy one in your home.
That’s the position in which Kimberly Bell of Enola finds herself.
Long before the doctors diagnosed her cancer in May 2017, Amy Hood knew something was wrong. Amy, 52, has been in pain since she fell off a ladder and ruptured three discs in her neck in 1996. But this pain was different, and she knew it. Finally, her extreme pain drove her to the emergency room. That’s when they found the cancer.
Thank you to the Dallastown Girls Volleyball Booster Club for their donation of $1,000 that was raised at the Clash for the Cure Volleyball Game. This donation was in honor of their coaches father, Greg Bortner.
Joy Graybeal was working at the Steelton mill when her back started hurting. Nobody, including her doctors, thought it unusual that a woman working full time and raising two grandchildren would have aches and pains.
Thank you to Heritage Valley Federal Credit Union for allowing their employees to have a "dress down" day to benefit Vickie's Angel Foundation. There are so many ways that, you too, can raise money to help local families fighting cancer.
We would like to thank Mindteck for their donation of $2,500. This time of year, many people have no fuel for their oil tanks. This will fill quite a few tanks and keep a lot of families warm. Thank you so much!
Vickie's Angels are already busy planning 2018's events, and trying to make this year our best year yet. We'd like to thank all of our volunteers, guardian angels and sponsors who helped make 2017 so very special for many local families fighting cancer.
As 2017 has now come to an end, please take a moment to enjoy a few photos from this year's annual Christmas gift party. Each year Vickie's Angel Foundation partners with local businesses to purchase Christmas gifts for the children of the families we help. We had a wonderful time here at the office meeting families and spending time together.
