Cancer has touched
most of our lives, in some way, shape or form.
Joan Upton, a
Porter County resident for twenty years, is currently battling stage 2
breast cancer. Joan, while a part of Supporters of the Military (SOM), has
helped organize, pack and ship hundreds of care packages to our troops
deployed overseas. She has also taken part in many fundraising events to
support her fellow Porter County residents. Now Joan needs our help.
The Stand With Joan
Benefit is being organized to raise funds to benefit Joan in her battle. The
event will be held on Sunday, June 24, 2018, to help offset her medical
expenses during this trying time. A major part of the fundraising effort is
selling raffle tickets and seeking donations for silent auction items for
the fundraiser. Organizers are asking area residents to give a donation of
goods/services and in-kind gifts to be raffled or auctioned to help make
this event a tremendous success.
To donate or for
more information, contact Wendy Wells (Joan’s daughter) at (312) 722-3833,
or email StandWithJoan@gmail.com.
