Local cancer patient, John Greendyke, receives reclincer from cancer survivor, Josh Chaney

Recently Josh had contacted Cancer Association of Darke County and expressed his desire to donate a recliner to a local cancer patient. The association coupled this with their yearly BBQ sales. Any patient who had received services in the past 5 years was eligible to enter the drawing. John entered his name and was very happy to learn that his name had been drawn the day of the sales.

Josh states: “In May of 2016 when I heard "It's cancer," it shook me to the core. It's a tough pill to swallow. Fast forward to October 2016 my cancer is in remission. I made a promise to myself that if my six month scan came back clear, I wanted to celebrate by giving back.

Unable to sleep flat in a bed anymore due to the aftermath of cancer, my recliner was my salvation through treatments and even now into recovery. I am grateful for all the love and support I received from family, friends, co-workers, employer and medical staff. Understanding and surviving the struggles of treatments, I wanted to offer a local cancer fighter or survivor their choice of a new recliner. Thanks to partnering with Christine Lynn at Cancer Association of Darke County and my employer at Furniture Express, I was able to make a difference. Not only for the winner of the recliner, but also myself. Helping another person affected by cancer helped make my journey come to full circle.

Again, thank you so much for making this possible.”

Cancer Association wishes to express a big thank you to Josh for helping to make this event a very special day. It is generous people like Josh who help to make a difference for those patients fighting the battle of their life. Thank you, Josh, and congratulations to John. Enjoy!
