Jen's medical treatment

After years of headaches, bodyaches and other mysterious symptoms,  Jen began having more pronounced heart and fainting episodes. After several hospital stays/visits  and many tests, Jen has finally been diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic  Tachycardia Syndrome (P.O.T.S syndrome) which is a malfunction of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS automatically controls our heart rate, blood pressure, gastrointestinal motility and other automatic functions of the body.

Jen is unable to  work, volunteer, drive or even shower without supervision. This has truly changed her life!  Because of this diagnosis (finally) Jen and her husband, Curt,  need to go to Stanford for 2 weeks asap after the beginning of the new year for treatment.

What we are asking for is funds to help cover the loss of wages that cover their bills such as rent and travel expenses including but not limited to gas $, hotel $ and food.

If you can help at all anything and everything is much appreciated!!!! Thank you so much in advance
