Following her leave of absence for her diagnosis of colorectal cancer earlier this year, Courtenay Coun. Rebecca Lennox’s fundraising campaign to support the costs of her treatment has reached more than $11,000.

The Go Fund Me campaign was created by Amy Bockner, and had a goal to raise $10,000, and began Sunday.

By Tuesday afternoon, the total had topped $11,100.

According to the campaign, Lennox had surgery at the end of April, and while it was successful in removing the tumour, she continues to battle with cancer in her blood. She is continuing treatment to stop it from spreading.
