On August 22nd, our dear friend Jennifer Hodges suffered a traumatic brain injury after a fall while at a church retreat with her family in Santa Rosa, CA. After several weeks in ICU, she is now in an acute care facility, close to family and friends in the Bay area. Though medically stable, she remains in a minimally conscious state and we are uncertain what the future holds. We know that Jennifer's passion, intellect and fearless embrace of life has inspired and touched so many of us.
Jennifer's three remarkable children are being supported through this by their father, grandfather and loving church and school community. We are asking you to reflect on what Jennifer has meant to you and help us expand that community of love and support through this campaign. As her close friends, we are trying to see this tragic situation as an opportunity to reflect on how fortunate we are in own lives and for having known this remarkable woman. We know many of you have met with great success in your lives and we hope you will take this opportunity to give generously.
