Patch recently caught up with Wrentham resident June Brady-Wooding, the owner/founder of Fanautical at Patriot Place to learn more about her fun-loving/unique clothing store and hear how she overcame a rare form of bone cancer five years ago.
In 2005, Wrentham resident June Brady-Wooding's world was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer just eight months after giving birth to her second child. “Through that whole process – a two-year period – I was in bed and it was really intense and I had surgery,” Brady-Wooding said. “It wasn’t a good outlook.” Doctors had little research on the cancer, telling Brady-Wooding only 200 people a year are diagnosed with her form of bone cancer.

The end gain to me was no matter what…
