“In February 2020, Jan received a very unexpected diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma on a lump in her neck. She and Lee spent seven weeks at Mayo Clinic in Rochester while Jan received radiation five times a week and chemo once a week,” organizers said. “Due to unforeseen complications, she had to stay at Mayo for an additional two weeks. They incurred significant travel, lodging and meal costs in addition to major out-of-pocket medical expenses.”
