Meriam Liggett is on leave from her teaching job after a diagnosis of aggressive, advanced-stage breast cancer.
When she was first diagnosed, Liggett said, she focused on getting well. She left home repairs unattended, so she could use her energy and money for her treatments.
That bought her time until about three weeks ago, when doctors told her the cancer had returned.
"It's the rarest, the most aggressive and the highest level in my category," she said.
Bill Wilson, a contractor who worked on the project, said, "Everybody I called said, 'I'm on board' when I told them the two-minute story about Miriam."
"It makes me feel good, because you get to help people out," said Danielle Rozansky.
