Mary Jane Stillwell and Debbie Folino have more in common than being married almost the same number of years, being the same age and being mothers.
Now they are joined by one day in August. On Aug. 17, within an hour or so of each other, the women were diagnosed with breast cancer.
“When I saw her story, I couldn’t believe how many similarities there were,” said Folino, who is from Elizabethtown. “When I read about Mary Jane, everything seemed to be the same for me.”
