Journal entry by Kara Noonan

Sharon Hankins passed away earlier this morning. Per her request, we (her daughters) are holding a “come-and-go” ice cream social to celebrate her life. PLEASE RSVP BY WEDNESDAY 9/1 here:

We are still grieving her loss and appreciate everyone providing us with space to grieve until the social. 

There are three ways you can immediately help the family: 

1) RSVP to the event.
It’s critical that we know who is coming and provide ice cream for all. 

2) Donate to Tenaciously Teal  in Mom’s honor.
They are a wonderful organization dedicated to spreading love & hope to cancer fighters. The founder herself is a survivor of ovarian cancer & showed Mom incredible support during her cancer journey. 

3) Help the family with meals.
If you’ve experienced the loss of a loved one, you know that simple tasks like meals can be overwhelming during and after the family member has passed. 
Patients and caregivers love hearing from you; add a comment to show your support.
