Jessup native Tina Jezuit was diagnosed with bone cancer in 1988 at the age of 11. As a result of the extensive chemotherapy, she also suffered heart failure when she was 24 and a stroke in February of 2007. Despite being unable to walk or talk after the stroke, she is almost fully recovered now. Thanks to her remarkably rapid recovery, the 31-year-old Valley View and University of Scranton graduate has been able to organize Cancerpalooza 20 , a fundraising event at Montdale Country Club on Sunday, July 13 from 2-7 p.m.
The event, which will feature food, entertainment, games and more, celebrates her 20th cancer-versary, but more importantly, she says, will benefit cancer and heart health awareness organizations. Since the stroke, she has completely dedicated herself to helping raise awareness for those affected by cancer and heart problems.
