Tori was a loving daughter, sister, family member, friend and incredible person. She was just 24 years old when diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. The many treatments she had can’t even be counted. She showed incredible courage and in turn has been shown an enormous amount of compassion by others. "Team Tori NFP" has helped our family make it through such a tremendously difficult time both by showing their love and support and also financial help.
She was a warrior and Superwoman that impacted a lot of people the 26 years she lived. When you’re in a fight like hers, it is so helpful to have milestones of hope along the way.
My Goal as her mom is to give hope to other young adults with colon cancer. I will be reaching out to help with the little things that matter. Co-pay, a light bill, a car payment and try and take a little stress off the fight. I want to educate others about colon cancer and how important your colon is to your overall health. We need laws changed to allow screening to be covered by the insurance earlier than it is.
I have Team Tori T-shrts off all sizes now. You can purchase them on the site or you can facebook me if you're local. They are $15.00 and $20.00. All donations now will be going into the Team Tori NFP account to help others with colon cancer and for colon cancer education. We will be also giving a scholarship away at the O’Fallon High School Annually.
Donations can be made at The Central Bank of Saint Louis, 350 Hartman Lane, O’Fallon IL 62269. Please make checks payable to the Team Tori Foundation. If you would like a receipt please let me know.
Four words you don’t expect to hear when you’re young.“You have colon cancer.”
