Our dear friend and sister Susan Martorello has once again found herself with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis and is in need of financial support to assist her in this journey. Susan is no longer able to work at Local Jonnys and is in need of immediate financial assistance. We are Susan's family here in Arizona and we are calling out to our communities to rise up and show the heart of humanity for this beautiful woman who has touched so many in such a short period of time!
Susan is a passionate, fearless and powerful woman who has already overcome so much on this journey with cancer. She has touched our hearts in ways that can only be known in the deepest parts of ourselves. We are coming together to hold her in the Love and Light of Humanity to gift her with the resources needed to relieve the stress of taking care of her basic needs and any natural healing modalities that may not be covered by insurance.
We so appreciate your support of whatever you are able to share!
Most importantly we call on the power of prayer and miraculous intention for her healing, we ask that you join us in whatever way speaks to your heart!
A Message of Hope from Susan
Greetings, beautiful community. My name is Susan Martorello. I am here in search of miracles and I invite you to come along with me on this journey. Please join with me in creating the energy that I pray will save my life. I can not walk this path without you.
I was born in New York and spent my childhood on Long Island. I am the daughter of a bold Sicilian mother and an Irish father. As an adult I lived in Corvallis, Oregon where I raised two incredible children, Jessica and Joseph. For most of my professional life I was employed in K-5 early childhood education as a developmental behavioral trauma specialist. I have educated and loved hundreds of children teaching them to transform life's most difficult moments.
In 2019 I moved to Arizona to pursue an advanced degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Half way through my studies at ASU, I was diagnosed with Stage III L Multifocal Breast Cancer, ER+/Her2/Chek2+.
At this time my life took a drastic turn and would never be the same. This all came at the beginning of the COVID epidemic and I found myself completely alone in a new city fighting a devastating diagnosis. After several surgeries and months of treatments I felt as though I was running out of options.
By what I thought at the time was a total accident I was guided to Treasure Milinovich at The Space Wellness Center. I came to The Space in search of someone who could help me die peacefully. What I received instead was the most incredible community that held me so close until I had the power to live again. Through dedicated practice my body and mind experienced the most profound healing and only peace began to fill my heart.
As I continued to strengthen and feel well, I was again blessed to meet two new beautiful souls who gave me the opportunity to grow stronger in a different way; Lauren and Becca from Local Jonnys in my new home of Cave Creek. I started working one or two days a week and before long I was a regular staff person working a full week like everyone else. For me this was a miracle as I never expected to live life in this way again. I became a part of the beautiful LJ family and I continued to grow stronger and stronger each day. I now found myself surrounded by people that I loved and loved me at The Space and Local Jonnys.
This blessed City of Cave Creek healed me and became my forever home.
Today, I have been called to experience something more courageous. I am asked again to live an even more miraculous life. I have discovered I have cancer again. I now have Stage IV (4) Metastatic breast cancer with the cancer spreading to the stomach and left lung.
I know I have little time to waste and I need all of the assistance possible in this world to help me grow the energy of the miraculous to save my life. Please join me. I believe that during this journey the miracles I will receive are actually miracles created for all of the souls who are called to walk this with me.
