Vaughn & Melton recognizes the importance of supporting the educational movement during October Breast Cancer Awareness month. Two examples of our V&M family being affected with this disease are Robin Whitehead, wife of James Whitehead (Knoxville, TN Office) and Debbie Carter, wife of Jerry Carter (Spartanburg, SC Office).
Robin Whitehead, survivor and warrior, was diagnosed in 1999 with breast cancer and had to undergo an aggressive treatment called the "Red Devil" chemo process. In 2001, after many treatments, Robin was pronounced as cancer-free and is still cancer-free today!
Debbie Carter was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2015. During the week of September 21, she received her first round of chemo and will receive her last treatment the week of Thanksgiving. Then, after a waiting period, Debbie will undergo an aggressive 30-treatment radiation process. We are all praying for Debbie and Jerry as they travel this journey together on the road to becoming cancer-free!
