All proceeds from the donations will go to the American Lung Association in honor of Joyce Pacheco. Joyce is my best friend. Joyce is truly a one in a million individual. She was recently diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She has always been an upbeat and positive individual. I have had the pleasure of working with her at Southwest for the past 15 years. She is the one that everyone can go to one they are in a jam. She's reliable, empathetic and her smile is contagious. She listens to anyone and everyone with genuine concern. She looks into your eyes and is fully present- in a world where distractions are inherent- she can tune it out and gives everyone the time and attention that makes everyone feel like they are important. She has been through a lot of testing and heart-ache since this discovery. My goals are multi-faceted; showing Joyce how many people love and support her, raising money to find a cure for lung cancer, and raising awareness of the importance of radon testing to prevent late diagnosis' of lung cancer. Please help me with these goals!
