Help Jennifer power through cancer

After closing Fresh Thymes Cafe in Wilmington, DE, Jenn and her mom moved to Costa Rica. December 2016, Jenn was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. After two blood transfusions and a lot of testing, a very large tumor was discovered in her uterus. January 2017 she had two more blood transfusions, a surgery to stop her body from bleeding, and biopsies were taken. The results began the fight of a lifetime. She was diagnosed with stage 3 grade 3C endometrial cancer. March 2017 she had a radical hysterectomy and more biopsies were taken. The beginning of April she was rushed to the hospital again by ambulance. She received two more blood transfusions and underwent another small surgery. The biopsies results came back with not the greatest news. She now has stage 4 uterine serous adenocarcinoma cancer, which is very aggressive.

She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and each trip is an arduous trip to the hospital in San Jose. This will be followed by 6 weeks of radiation in San Jose. They will have to relocate temporarily to San Jose during radiation. Since this journey started in December, Jenn has not been able to work much due to severe pain and fatigue.

Jenn and her family have been very grateful for everyone's support. Many have asked how to help. They really could use financial assistance for travel, lodging, and food in San Jose. The donations will also help cover weekly lab work, alternative treatments, medications, bills, and the radiation treatments. Jenn has had to pay $6000 out of pocket for the surgeries thus far. As so many people are faced with medical hardships, some care is covered and other parts come out of pocket.

Everything is beginning to add up at a time she and my adopted mom, Jane, don't need to be stressing about how they're going to eat.
Please donate and share with your friends.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
