Remembering – Judy
On Good Friday Eve 2016, March the 24th, Judy Gronich-Macdonald was diagnosed with stage IV soft-tissue sarcoma. Originating in her hip muscle, it had devastatingly spread to her lungs and near her spine. She had no other symptoms but soreness in her hip before diagnosis. After an intense stint of radiotherapy to no avail, Judy’s cancer had spread even more and worsened in her lungs. She could only take one round of chemotherapy, which made no improvement. On July 11th, her second admission into hospital and just over 3 months since her diagnosis, Judy passed away surrounded by her husband and two daughters. She was 56 years old.
