We’re working to make sure Heather is able to hear again, to enjoy a normal life like you and I, and we’re hoping our community will join us.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) October 16, 2015
Stephanie Ando Insurance, a family owned insurance firm that serves Jacksonville and the surrounding communities, is initiating a charity drive to raise funds that will ensure a local woman, Heather, is able to receive a life changing operation.
Heather has been diagnosed with acute cholesteatoma, a rare and destructive disease that attacks the tissue inside the ear. Like cancer, cholesteatoma spreads and destroys healthy tissue, which could eventually lead to brain damage. The operation will not only give Heather the opportunity to enjoy a normal life, but could end up saving her from much more severe, and ultimately life-threatening, nerve damage.
“We’re working to make sure Heather is able to hear again, to enjoy a normal life like you and I, and we’re hoping our community will join us,” says Stephanie Ando, owner and manager of Stephanie Ando Insurance. “Assisting our fellow community members in their time of need is what our firm is all about, and we know there are plenty of people in Jacksonville that feel the same.”
Ando and her team are already mobilizing an extensive network of contacts, both personal and professional, in an effort to advocate on Heather’s behalf, as well as to gather funds that will be used to ensure she receives the operation she needs to restore her hearing. Further, the team is building an online social media portal that they predict will draw in support from families all across Jacksonville and throughout Florida.
In addition to assisting Heather on her road to recovery, the Stephanie Ando Insurance team has worked with over half a dozen local charities and causes over the last few months, and plans to work with even more in the future. The firm has made a commitment to an ongoing community involvement program, and plans to find and support a new charity every month or two going forward.
