Tsunami's Jenn & Brenefit

On Sunday, November 2nd, we will be hosting a tattoo benefit to raise money for our dear friends Jenn and Brendon Whitney. Jenn was diagnosed this fall with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. Thankfully, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a treatable form of cancer. Once in remission, survivors are known to lead healthy, normal lives.

That said, Jenn’s ability to work during her 6 months of treatment will be very limited. She is an early childhood educator, primarily working with special needs children and low income families, and if you’ve spent any time with a roomful of toddlers, you know what a petri dish that environment can be. Chemotherapy significantly lowers the immune system and makes patients highly susceptible to germs and other illnesses. As a result, Jenn will likely need to be out of the classroom for the duration of her chemo. This benefit will raise money to help support Jenn’s family weather the difficult days ahead. 100% of our earnings go directly to them.
