Spaghetti for Susan
Susan Hooper immediately began volunteering for the Texoma Health Foundation (THF) after receiving financial support through THF’s Breast Cancer Assistance Program (500 Strong). Diagnosed at Stage IV in 2006, she was sent home with no options for treatment or surgery. She has shared countless times that if it had not been for the support of THF she would not be alive.
Once diagnosed as cancer-free, Susan began caring for others. She has volunteered countless hours for THF (at all hours of the day and night), started THF’s breast cancer survivor support group, and manages our Room for Hope located in Reba’s Ranch House – distributing wigs, prosthetics and comfort items to cancer patients in the area. She has been a ray of light to breast cancer survivors and an inspiration to all of us. After helping fill-in for employees at Reba’s Ranch House when needed, Susan joined the staff and became a permanent member of our family in 2011.
Following six years of being cancer-free, this past year Susan faced her next major hurdle with a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer that has spread to her bones. She has already finished two intensive rounds of chemotherapy treatment and will now be entering patient trials with U.T. Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. She has touched so many lives here at THF, please join us in touching hers.
