We all know that a cancer diagnosis is devastating, not only for the person who is diagnosed but for the family as well. What most people don’t think about is the effects that the diagnosis has on everyday life. Everyday matters like paying bills, feeding your family and keeping a roof over your head worry you while you are gearing up to fight the battle of your life. We would like to help ease these burdens for one local family in our community.
This year St Augustine United is fundraising for a local family that is battling a cancer diagnosis and is worried about these very questions. Katrina had to quit her job to fight cancer. If that wasn’t a struggle enough, Katrina’s husband Jeff suffered an injury and was off work for 12 weeks during this time. Katrina, Jeff and their three children need our help. We are hoping that you will assist us in helping them with all of the everyday expenses necessary for living so Katrina can focus on fighting the battle for her health and not worry about how all of the bills are going to get paid.
Proceeds of our run will help Katrina and Jeff.

This beautiful young lady was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma… aka Breast Cancer. She is only 36!!! She is a wife and a mother to three amazing children. Katrina has a husband who is fighting with her every step of the way. Unfortunately, Katrina has lost her income due to this terrible disease we call cancer. Her husband has been working hard to make ends meet but it is a daily struggle. He also just had surgery and will be out of work for about 12 weeks to recover, On top of all of this, they desperately need their vehicle repaired. This is their mode of transportation to get Katrina to her chemo treatments, Jeff to work, and the kids to school, etc. the repairs needed for new transmission are over $2000. They will be incurring many other expenses as well such as utility expenses, groceries, and rent. Can you please help this family?
