As a survivor of Stage 3 Hodgkin’s cfdisease and Stage 2 breast cancer, Joanne began this fundraiser at as a means of educating attendees about breast cancer, creating awareness, celebrating life and giving back to organizations that share the same goals. The Rollieson’s have donated over $15,000 to cancer organizations to date.
Over the past five years the Rollieson’s party has been a spectacular success due in part to the support they’ve received from local restaurants and caterers, entertainment companies and the local medical community.
