As a clinical practice manager at Caregiver Homes, Jennifer (Curran) Bartolo brings her compassion, humor, and expertise to all her coaching sessions with her 14 staff members. As a mom to very active 5 year old Joe and strong willed 9 year old Alina Jen brings her patience, determination , and bribery skills(!). And, as a wife to Steve, a local firefighter, Jen brings her love, light, and passion. To all who know her Jen means so much more then just a person passing thru their life. To many she is the bright moment in their day, the kiss at bedtime , the shoulder for strength. Recently Jen’s friends and family realized how quickly Jens flame of life could be extinguished after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Jen completed all of her chemotherapy with little more then a few days off and will continue with infusion treatments for the next 9 months. This week she will face her most difficult challenge: a bi lateral mastectomy which will force her out of work for several weeks, perhaps months. Now is the time that Jen needs YOUR strength as she continues her fight for her cure. Coworkers have generously donated the maximum hours allowed but that will only cover the first weeks. Childcare, household bills, medical costs will continue to pile up for this young family who should only be worrying about Jen's recovery- not having to decide which bill gets paid. Now is the time that Jen needs YOUR strength as she continues her fight for her cure. Please consider donating to help this young family stay on their feet during this difficult time. If you are unable to donate, please hold them all in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you .
