PLATTSBURGH — Angie Devin's Jolly Jumper bounce houses have brought immeasurable fun to North Country residents of all ages.
Her loved ones are looking for a communal bump for Angie's Fight for Cancer Fundraiser, which challenges locals to support Devins during this critical time when she's been diagnosed with breast cancer, an aggressive adenocarcinoma.
“She is an active woman that takes pride in the community,” Lexi Butler, Devins' stepdaughter, said.
“She just did the Letters for Santa that came on News Channel 5. Kids dropped off letters of their wish list. She responded to all of them.”
The Plattsburgh native has three daughters — Hannah, Haileigh, Mandi — and a doting significant other, Evan Boyd.
“She has three grandchildren, and she watches them on a full-time basis,” Butler said.
“She's into the craft fairs. She had Angie's Fabulous Finds at all the craft fairs. She's a creative woman that's for sure.”
Devins was diagnosed in early December and will return to Vermont on Jan. 16 to learn when she will have surgery.
A fundraiser will be held for Devins on Saturday, Feb. 8 from noon to 7 p.m. at the Thomas J. Duffy VFW Post 1466 located at 327 Spellman Rd. in Beekmantown.
A $10 ticket will get attendees a spaghetti dinner, listen to music, as well as try their luck in a Dart Tournament, Chinese Auction and 50/50 Raffle.
“Anybody that's willing to help out with the Chinese auction to give donations and for people to attend,” Butler said.
