A Night for Monic Mancilla
Please join us on July 31 at 6:30pm at Harvest Petaluma, formally known as Fourchette. On this evening we will support Monic, (pronounced Monique) who was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer. This devastating news has hit her family extremely hard.
Due to the large size of the mass that was found, Monic must first undergo a mininum of five months of chemotherapy treatments in hopes of decreasing the size of the mass before surgery. After surgery is performed, she will then begin a series of radiation treatments which will continue for several more months.
During this time, she will be unable to work and will only receive a small portion of her regular income, through long-term disability benefits. Monic is a single mother of 2 and works a fulltime job to provide for herself and youngest daughter Lexi, who is only 12 years old.
We will have a “Back to our Roots” kind of night…women supporting women. We will socialize, enjoy some food and drink, show support for our cause and view a powerful movie called “Wise Women Speak.”
Bring an appetizer, dessert, or a bottle of wine to share. Proceeds will support our local friend and mother, Monic. If you can’t attend the event, but would like to donate to her cause, click here.
Please keep Monic in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you to our co-hostesses Kathleen Callahan and Heidi Overman!
