Special to The PREVIEW
All are invited to attend the Memorial Jog for Julie this Saturday, June 11, at 9 a.m.
The Centerpoint Church parking lot will be the starting point. This as an informal event and, as in the past, participants are welcome to jog or walk. All ages are welcome and strollers are a great idea for young ones.
There is not a registration fee, but cash and check donations are greatly appreciated. All proceeds will go to Ruby Webster.
Ruby has been battling stage 3B cancer since September 2015. Ruby is 31 and the wife of Curtis Webster and mother of a “precious princess,” as she calls her daughter, Grace.
Ruby had always done self breast checks. After discovering a lump in her left breast in August of 2015, she made an appointment for Sept. 18.
On Sept. 23, the tests results indicated invasive ductal carcinoma, stage 3B.
Ruby completed 16 rounds of chemotherapy in six months in Farmington, N.M. On May 17, Ruby under went a bilateral mastectomy, a surgery which took 4 1/2 hours.
In July, Ruby will begin radiation treatments five days a week for 5 1/2 weeks.
The Websters have their home for sale. They have built a tiny home and have plans to move it to a piece of land they hope to purchase soon where they can grow their own food. Ruby and Curtis agree on what is important, this being focusing on God, family, time together and fewer material possessions.
Please come out to support the Webster family on June 11, this Saturday. They look forward to meeting you. If you are unable to attend, but would like to make a donation, please do so by going to http://www.gofundme.com/ke6uxhge.
