Dinner to benefit Woodland grad diagnosed with cancer

NAUGATUCK — A benefit pasta dinner for Danielle Broderick Joubert will be held Monday from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jesse Camille’s Restaurant, 615 Church St.

Joubert, a 2007 graduate of Woodland Regional High School and former member of the Hawks swim team, was recently diagnosed with choriocarcinoma, a form of cancer that stemmed from her recent pregnancy during which cancer cells from the placenta metastasized into her liver, lungs and pancreas. She received an emergency diagnosis while she and her family were on vacation in Florida, and they are stuck there while she receives treatment.
