In 1978, Joyce Franco Magnus was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. Radiation saved her life, but at a cost. She has lived with the damage it caused to her lungs for many years. So on December 6, 2013 when Joyce collapsed in the city of Chicago on her way back from lunch, she assumed it was her lungs. Her assumption was wrong. She was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where it was discovered that her heart had also been damaged from the treatments.
In the following days she would undergo a triple bypass, two valve replacements, draining of fluid in the lungs and, after a near miss incident, an insertion of a pacemaker.
Let's pull together and do what each of us can to help offset the expense as we support her in the long recovery ahead.
