Thorough dunking for a good cause


Westfield Mayor Andy Cook, Fire Marshal Garry Harling and HealthSource of Westfield’s Stacey Young all took time sitting on the dunk tank plank – and in the water beneath it – as they raised money for longtime resident Jane Dupont on Oct. 11.

Dupont has worked for IMMI and lived in Westfield for more than 30 years. She is now facing the toughest battle of her life, stage 4 breast cancer. One year ago Dupont underwent surgery and was told the surgeon removed all of the cancerous tumors, but recently she received the diagnosis that the cancer returned. Due to that diagnosis, Dupont can no longer work and will lose her health insurance.

“If I can make Jane’s life a little bit easier by swallowing some of my pride and volunteering to get dunked, then why not?” stated Cook. “Jane deserves a fighting chance and I hope the citizens of Westfield help make that happen.”

Young said the event has raised $1,013 and HealthSource of Westfield will continue to provide more fundraising opportunities with $10 Domino’s Pizza cards (for 16 buy-one-get-one free coupons) and free chiropractic exams with a $10 donation to Jane (the deal does not apply to federal insurance beneficiaries and ACN participants).

“It is a highly sad situation and she deserves the community’s support,” Young said.
