Family Holds Fundraiser for Janice Gantt

She's a leader in our community, and now she needs our help. Family and friends are setting up a fundraiser for Janice Gantt.

She's battling cancer for the fifth time, and is trying to raise money to travel to Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute in New York for more treatment.

Loved ones say the fundraiser is a way to support her for all she's done. "She's just constantly giving to other people and she's always a source of inspiration, you never see her without a smile," said daughter Jeri Sires. "You never greet her without getting a hug and you never know her without knowing her family."

The fundraiser will be tonight and Saturday night at 8pm at Asbury United Methodist Church on Waters Avenue. Tickets are $15 and include entertainment and a silent auction.

For more information call Jeri Sires at 912.844.4204.
