Yazoo’s Donation Helps Others Find Strength

           

Cancer.  The one word everyone knows and everyone hates.  It’s a disease that has become commonly known to everyone and anyone.  There are many different types of cancers and thousands upon thousands of people have been diagnosed, currently fighting, lost their battle, or are a survivor of cancer.

Breast Cancer, which is the most common type of cancer, can affect both men and women.  Heather Baker, a strong and determined mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, and teacher became a victim to this disease.  After giving birth to her youngest son, Heather was diagnosed with a rare type of sub-breast cancer called triple negative, which only about 10-20%
of breast cancer victims are diagnosed with this type.  After fighting like a true champion, on March 8, 2010, Heather sadly lost her fight to cancer.

Heather’s love, dedication, passion, and strength have paved the way for a wonderful organization to be made in her honor, the Heather Baker Foundation.  This foundation brings hope
to local families affected by cancer and terminal illnesses.

HBF is able to help ease the financial burdens of families fighting cancer by the many fundraising events they hold each year.  Yazoo Mills is proud to support and donate $1,000 as a Silver Sponsor for the Fall Country Music Festival held on September 23, 2017 at AquaPhoenix Scientific, Inc. in Hanover, PA.  This is a 21 and older event that will feature live music, wine & hard cider tastings, dinner, and dancing.
