Jen Forsgren

Imagine how you would feel hearing the words, "YOU HAVE CANCER."  Now imagine trying to battle this frightening disease without adequate insurance coverage and learning that you'd have to pay for every single treatment you receive out of pocket.  Would you be able to afford that?

As many of you know, Jen Forsgren was diagnosed with Stage III COLORECTAL CANCER in January 2018.  This devastating news has turned her life and the lives of her family upside down.  Jen is a wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.  She has 4 kids--3 of whom were adopted and have special needs which require hours of therapy each week.  

Jen has been spending  4 mornings a week for the last 5 months receiving cancer treatments.  Payment is due at the time of treatment.  There are no payment plans.  The cost of treatment is more than $4,000 every month.  (This amount doesn't even include all of the blood tests, supplements and at-home treatments she requires to fight the cancer.)  

Jen continues to need our help.  Every donation, large or small, will make it possible for her to continue receiving cancer treatments.  Please don't wait.  Generously donate what you can and then encourage others to do the same.  With our financial support and continued prayers, Jen will be able to beat cancer and live to raise her precious children.  

Thank you!

P.S.  A Venmo account (@stronglikejen) has also been set up for donations and to collect #stronglikejen t-shirt payments.  

Jen has created an Instagram account ( if you'd like to learn more about her cancer treatments and offer words of encouragement.
