Mother-Daughter Photo Shoot Helps Hamilton Woman
Photography studio donates proceeds to help defray costs of fight against cancer for young Loudoun resident.
A mother-daughter photo shoot sponsored by Amy Berringer Photography has been planned in Purcellville to benefit a young Hamilton resident with terminal cancer.
Jocelyn Rodearmel, 27, was diagnosed in November 2011 with late-stage breast cancer. By the time of diagnosis the cancer had already spread to her liver. The disease has not responded to treatment, but her family has not given up hope. They recently learned that the best treatment option for cancer is gene-targeted therapies, which are very expensive. The treatments would help extend her life and help provide a good quality of life.
The testing and lab work required to determine the type of personalized treatment Rodearmel needs costs $13,500. The monthly costs for treatment are estimated at $35,000.
Help Rodearmel by participating in the event and capturing a great moment with your mother or daughter.
