Other Information:  All proceeds to pay for medical bills and expenses for Phyllis Hunt.  Phyllis is a caring, compassionate and very giving person.  She is in need of our support now.  She was diagnosed with Stage 3C colon cancer.  On August 8, 2013 she had surgery to remove the cancer and had a colon resection.  The cancer had already traveled to her lymph nodes.  After five weeks of recovering from surgery, she began chemotherapy.  She is still getting chemo treatments every two weeks.  Due to difficulties tolerating the drugs, they have been reduced.  She remains determined to fight and win.  Please support her in any way you can!  https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/dvs3/phyllis-hunt-coke-cancer-fund
