Shawna Graham-Herring Fundraiser — Shawna has two precious boys Ryen (14) and Jude (2). Shortly after Jude was born, Shawna was diagnosed with cervical cancer. After a tough battle with the cancer, surgeries, radiation, and chemo treatments, Shawna proved victorious and was given a clean bill of health.
Shawna continued her plans to marry the love of her life Justin Herring in September of 2011. Just two weeks before her wedding, Shawna was again diagnosed with cancer and this time, on her lung. Once again, Shawna proved her perseverance as she battled the cancer, chemo treatments, and the stress of planning a wedding. Shawna was victorious as she was declared healthy after her PET scan was cancer free in early December 2011.
The new year offered a fresh start and Shawna planned and celebrated Jude’s 2nd birthday on January 15th, 2012. The following day she went to the hospital with severe head and neck pain. Fearing spinal meningitis, doctors quarantined her and performed three spinal taps. The spinal taps revealed that Shawna now had cancer cells in her spinal fluid and brain. Sadly, on February 3rd, 2012 Shawna lost her battle.
