Medical Fund set up to help Irene Herring

Please join fellow Islanders by donating to this fundraiser for Irene Herring. Many know her as the much beloved, warm, and vibrant former owner of the San Juan Coffee Roasting Company at Cannery Landing in Friday Harbor. She has been a caring Islander for many, many years, contributing to  all sorts of fundraisers and needs, many times for strangers. Always with a kind word and genuine smile, she welcomed everyone into her coffee shop with nonjudgmental attention. 

In 2022, the difficult decision was made to sell the family business to help pay off debts and begin to phase Irene into a much deserved retirement while undergoing treatment. She worked at the coffee shop until she physically could no longer, and her husband Steve still continues to roast for the new owners of the business.

Irene is currently undergoing chemotherapy and in preparation for a targeted stem cell treatment for her Multiple Myeloma cancer at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.  The process will be long, difficult and expensive.  It is time for Islanders to help this wonderful woman in her time of need. 

Kindly give whatever you can to make this hard journey less of a burden.

Donations can be made to any Banner Bank by mailing a check, using the drive up or transferring funds to the "Irene Herring Medical Fund."  All funds go directly to Irene.

There is also a GoFundMe account
