Donor & Survivor

Chris Burkhead is one of the driving forces behind the great fundraiser, Cockopalooza, and Siobhan O’Toole (Irish pronouced Sha-von) had Kidney Cancer the year before, when she was 17. Cockopalooza’s proceeds are dedicated to United Cancer’s fund for families who’s children have cancer. Siobhan had successful surgery to remove half of her kidney and, in this picture, was preparing to start college at Indiana University, Bloomington. United Cancer brings people who want to help together with cancer patients in need. Elkhart County neighbors helping neighbors is United Cancer’s purpose, and we thank you all for your great support!

Middlebury Walks for a Cure

Shayne Rock - Your Donations at Work

In this picture, Shayne Rock has had surgery and finished radiation treatments for thyroid cancer, so she is cancer free! Like so many of United Cancer’s clients, the combination of out-of-pocket treatment costs and loss of income lead Shayne to UC for help. Shayne is a 20 year employee of KMC Controls, and she has a 19-year-old daughter studying business at IPFW. Shayne also works at Maplecrest Country Club and loves to play golf. In fact, Shayne played golf when she attended Goshen High School. Your donations helped Shayne with her cancer bills, and we can’t thank you enough!

Laura Rasch - Your Donations at Work

Laura Rasch, pictured here with her husband Ejner, had an extremely rare form of cancer in the soft tissue of her right arm. Soon after this picture, Laura had successful surgery to remove the tumor. Laura’s insurance leaves 10% of her costs out-of-pocket, and before the surgery she already had $40,000 in treatment bills. Laura is a 17 year employee of the Elkhart County Health Dept., is a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, loves to read inspirational books, and is the Vice Chair of the Suicide Coalition. UC helped Laura pay some of her treatment costs, thanks to your donations!
