Meet the Chevarella Family
Jodi Chevarella is 44 and lives in Derby, CT. She and her loving husband Dave have four children; Anna, 16, David, 14, Isabelle, 12 and Genna, 10. Jodi was diagnosed in 2010 with Stage 2 Invasive Breast Cancer, and underwent chemotherapy, radiation and 11 surgeries in 1 year to remove the cancer and perform reconstruction surgeries. Jodi continued hormone and bone treatments these past years. Jodi’s cancer recently resurfaced and she has been diagnosed with Stage IV, Her2 Metastic Breast Cancer. This past year she received radiation again and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and hormone treatment. Jodi is continuing to fight and keep positive during this difficult and uncertain time. Jodi wants the opportunity to be able to create a lasting memory with her family by going on a cruise together. They have never been on a cruise and this is something she has always wanted to do. We will be granting Jodi’s wish in the summer of 2016.
