Help for Jenn,Violet & Johnny

Hi everyone,

My name is Jenn and I am a single mom fighting cancer. Last year I was diagnosed with a cancer my doctor assured me was treatable via hysterectomy. However, post surgery, I was stunned to learn that the cancer had travelled to my lymph nodes which put me at stage 3. I immediately went through several weeks of aggressive chemo and radiation treatments. I am told if the cancer returns, it would likely come back within two years.

At the same time, I am also dealing with an exceptionally difficult and complex divorce during which I had to make the agonizing decision to close my childcare business. Adding to this, I do not receive any child support, yet I have the majority of the custody of my children. It has also become critical that I find affordable housing.

As my funds are quickly diminishing, I've decided that reaching out for help in this way is something I can do now to help my family while I work towards stabilizing my situation. My essential goal is to keep the chronic stress of money and divorce from continuing to compromise my immunity and fueling the possibility of cancer recurring.

I need to stay healthy for my children and I strive for Violet and Johnny, 10 and 5 years old, to be alleviated from this pressure and for them to know I am going to be okay.
I would so very much appreciate your assistance in helping me to create a stable and healthy new start for Violet, Johnny and myself so that we can move our lives in a peaceful direction.

I am so thankful for any amount you are able to contribute which will provide some relief and the time I need to establish employment, cover basic costs of living, help with legal fees, find housing, and other healing support for cancer. I can assure you your gift will be diligently applied to my aforementioned needs.

If you are willing and feel comfortable, it would also be a great help if you can share my campaign on your social networks which are listed below.

I send out my heartfelt thanks, to each and every one of you who are reading my story, for your support in any form...prayers and good thoughts sent our way mean so much. My gratitude is simply boundless.

With Love,

I would like to say a HUGE thanks to those of you who offered your time and encouragement in many ways as I worked on my campaign.
