On Sunday, May 7th a fundraiser will be held at Dr. J’s in Peterborough from 12 to 9:30 pm called “For Her Victory”.
From the organizers: “We will be holding raffles and having a Silent Auction during the day for Melanie Clancy with bands and a DJ to entertain us throughout the day. Melanie who had been misdiagnosed back in November recently found out after surgery in February to remove an 8 cm mass now has been told she has Stage 3 Aggressive Breast Cancer. In just a few short weeks her world flipped upside down and she went into treatment without delay. This is a race against time for her. Melanie has a very long journey ahead of her in her fight to survive this terrible disease. Her friends and family want to help her deal with her upcoming medical bills and help ease the financial burden she will face having to be off work for up to 10 months while she endures 20 weeks of chemo, an upcoming surgery to follow then many weeks of radiation and recovery.”
“Melanie is a single Mother of 3 who gives all of her time to her children, family, friends and even complete strangers when needed. Melanie is one of the most selfless individuals I have ever met who never asks for anything in return and always has a smile on her face. Melanie is also a long time community volunteer with the Peterborough Hockey Association for the past 16 years. Over the 16 years she has given so much of her own time to others as a Trainer, Tournament Director, Sponsorship Director, Convener, and now is the PHA Secretary and Timekeeper scheduler. She has given up many nights, weekends and endless hours to her community and now it is our turn to give back to her.”
