Charlotte and David

Sgt. David Jensen, who chose the US Army for his career, served his country honorably for 12 years.  After being at the burn pits in Iraq on deployment, he was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive cancer. He has fought his cancer valiantly, undergoing many surgeries and numerous chemotherapy and radiation treatments, in an effort to prolong his life.  Dave had undiagnosed brain tumors which affected his memory during the time he was supposed to be transferring his life insurance.  He thought he had done it, but due to memory issues it was left undone.  All of their savings was spent, and much debt was incurred in paying for lodgings and travel to and from medical treatments.  His wife, Charlotte, has faithfully stood by his side for 21 years.  She is a stay at home mom who lovingly raises their 5 children, two of whom have special needs. 


This past week, the oncology team told Dave and Charlotte that their fight is over.  On Thursday, (8/9/18), he was given 5 days to 2 months to live.  He is now at home on hospice.  If you can give anything to help this family with funeral and living expenses, it would be so greatly appreciated.  It would be such a great blessing for them to be able to focus on grieving and not worrying about the future.  If you would rather donate directly to the family, without the fees associated with this site, you may use Paypal and send a "friends and family" donation to [email redacted]
