Jerry is a single father raising two happy, curious, and energetic little girls. They are 6 and 9 years old. Jerry loves his family and prides himself on being able to provide for his two little angels. Last month Jerry went to the doctor to check out a nagging pain when he swallowed that he'd been dealing with all year. He was ultimately diagnosed with advanced throat cancer. Jerry loves pushing his little girls on the swingset and chasing them around the backyard. On Sundays Jerry used to spend all morning doing the yard work, cutting the grass, edging, and trimming the bushes. Now he spends his Sunday mornings giving underdogs and playing hide-and-seek.
Focus on the Fight's 'Disregard the Yard' Program makes sure Jerry's yard is kept to keep the backyard father-daughter playdates coming. No bills, no invoices, Focus on the Fight takes care of everything.
Ellen is 62 and lives alone after getting divorced from a marriage of nearly 30 years. Her two adult children and their families live out west and she talks to her grandchildren every other day on FaceTime. During her annual mammogram, her gynecologist noticed a few abnormal masses and sadly Ellen was diagnosed with the early stages of breast cancer. Ellen is starting her second round of chemotherapy treatments and the thought of getting behind the wheel after the exhaustion she knows all too well that follows a session really worries her. Now, she gets a ride to and from treatment. On the way there she can FaceTime the grandkids and afterwards she can rest easy knowing she will soon be home safely.
Focus on the Fight's Ride Programs arrange for transportation for all of Ellen's chemotherapy treatments. No bills, no invoices, Focus on the Fight takes care of everything.
