I was shocked to receive an email a couple of hours ago informing me that Tonya Sue Carther succumbed from the cancer she has been fighting for the last 2 years. Tonya Sue Carther is the creator of this site, Cancer Fairy Godmother. The news made me so sad, and yet proud to have been a small part of her selfless quest to deliver vital information to cancer patients and survivors to help in getting free products and services. Tonya Sue will be missed by her friends and family.
When I met Tonya Sue she was working for a client of mine in Old Tappan New Jersey and it was hard not to me impacted by her fire and enthusiasm for life. After Tonya Sue was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer, she left work to go through her treatments, and we stayed in contact. In going through this process, she began to see the issues and problems in coping with the effects of cancer treatments in her daily life, and set out to create a resource to help others in similar situations through this site Cancer Fairy Godmother. She tirelessly hunted down information for free and low cost solutions to help cancer patients and survivors and published that information on this site.
Tonya Sue’s Family has created a Memorial Web page in her memory found here: In Memory of Tonya Sue Carther
