Jake Powers has enjoyed watching Pink Out grow over the years. The Pink Out and breast cancer awareness is a cause close to Powers’ heart.
Powers said, “My mother was a breast cancer survivor and I was diagnosed in April of this year. I just finished my last chemo treatment on Sept. 11. Although my journey is not yet over, I have learned that I have needed the support of my family and friends. I’m so grateful for their compassion and understanding.”
Powers continued, “I want to thank everyone for their prayers and best wishes over the past few months. It is not easy to accept help it is not any easier to see a friend, loved one or co-worker struggle. My team at Jennie has been great. The Breast Health Center leads the way coordinating all the players. Heartland Oncology made my treatments at a convenient time so I could continue to work.”
The foundation assisted Power with his deductibles and co-pays.
“They have all put me first and listened to my concerns,” she said.
“They took time to answer all my questions and I am so thankful. I look forward when one day soon I can say I’m a survivor just like my mom!”
