The prosthetic eye must be our out of pocket and can not be placed in the same surgery.  Once the prosthesis is purchased, she has to wait four months for her eye socket to heal from the initial surgery before undergoing another.  She will be out of work for approximately 6 months and wont be able to drive.  Our goal with this campaign is to help buy Jenn the best eye available, and take the stress of her not working to provide for her children.  Jennifer is one of the most self-less people I know.  She has endured the trials of losing both her parents, her uncle, her grandfather (who raised her) and now her eye sight.  She is an exceptional single mother to her two children who are her World and she does everything she can to always put them first.  If you Jenn you know  she puts everyone first - she’s always there to provide help, Love, a listening ear, and Service to those around her.  Please help us raise the funds so that she can - this time, take care of herself without the worry of what’s to come.
