Barb Lau is the Executive Director of the Association of Women Contractors and is also very close to the hearts of the employees here at On Site Companies. Barb is a single mother of two daughters that are aged 12 & 14 and is also currently fighting Stage 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC). This type of cancer is a rare and aggressive form, which only represents about 10% of all breast cancer diagnoses. The cancer has also spread to her lymph node, as well as internal mammary node. This has made treatment of this disease even more aggressive. Since Barb’s diagnosis in February, Barb has completed 4 months of chemotherapy and has also had a double mastectomy and ovary removal surgery, and she is also begin undergoing a six week course of daily radiation treatments beginning in the end of August. After the six-week radiation treatment, Barb will then wait six months to allow her body to heal before undergoing reconstructive surgery. On Site Companies would like your help in assisting Barb with her medical care. The Association of Women Contractors is hosting an Oktoberfest Celebration, where the funds that are raised will go towards Barb’s medical expenses. The benefit will have entertainment, food and beverages, activities and a silent auction and raffle. If you would like to get involved in the effort to help Barb you can do so by donating raffle items, food, beverages, become an entertainment sponsor or an activity sponsor.
