Cancer Advocate Dusty Showers came across a request he couldn’t say no to, one that compelled him to succeed because of the heart touching story. That request came from Jolene Von Millanich who suffers from a rare and aggressive type of breast cancer, called Phyllodes. The disease has forced her to undergo surgery to remove her tumors and most of her right jaw which was replaced by bone from her leg. In December the tumor reoccurred forcing her to lose more of her jaw and chin.
Millanich’s wish was to dance on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show“. Ellen the host, starts the show dancing in the crowd and expressing herself through music.
Showers heard her wish, and with the help of other breast cancer survivors, sent the request to Ellen. The request touched Ellen’s heart. Ellen sent her two VIP tickets, one for her and one for her mom to the May 25 taping of Ellen’s show. Millanich got her chance to dance in the aisles of the studio fulfilling a long time wish.
“Jolene is an inspiration for us all, as she maintained a positive outlook through this tough time in her life. She deserves this” says Showers.
