Jen's Breast Cancer Fund

Shortly before her trip to Puerto Rico, Jen was trying on swim suits and found a lump in her breast. Fast forward a few weeks, Jen was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer.  She will have 16 cycles of chemotherapy, followed by surgery, followed by potentially more chemotherapy +/- radiation.  Jen has devoted her life to helping others (she's a wonderful nurse!) and this is our time to give her a little help back! Her bills will rack up quickly as she is paying out of pocket for fertility treatment ($8,000!!!) and her wig ($1,600!!!) plus the cost of her medical treatments.  She will have lost wages from work, as she requires time to recover after treatment and surgery.  Jen is not someone to ask for help, but could really use our financial help so she can focus on her health, not worrying about her medical bills, rent, car payments, student loans, etc! Every little bit will take a little stress off of her shoulders. If you can't help financially, that's okay too! She would love a well wish or some encouragement from you!
