Breast cancer survivor helps victims one puzzle piece at a time
A breast cancer survivor from Port Chester, who's been through nine rounds of chemo and numerous surgeries, is finding a way to give back.
Jenna Russo has now launched a GoFundMe for Puzzle Peace.
The non-profit will donate puzzles to people battling breast cancer.
Russo says the activity helped her through some of her toughest moments. "I know a lot of people said they workout and they do this, but I felt so sick I couldn't do that. So I said to my mom one day, ‘you know what, I'm going to try to give as many puzzles as I possibly can to people going through what I'm going through’ and I hope that they find the healing in it, like I did."
So far, she's raised more than $17,000 of her $30,000 goal.
Next week, she'll be delivering around 40 puzzles to Soul Riders in Rye Brook.
