Support Jennifer Bilek's Recovery


My sister, Jennifer Bilek, a portrait artist and political activist has broken her foot. She relies on her day job, traveling to people’s homes via public transportation, to provide haircuts, for her livelihood. She has been out of work since the beginning of December and will be unable to work for at least the month of January and very possibly beyond. Surgery on her broken foot has been put out as an option (at this point) and may be a necessity (depending on reassessment in a few weeks), which would entailat least another 6 weeks recovery, without income. Jen’s housing (a fourth story walk-up in Queens, NY), and ability to sustain independence is on the line without help! An insurance-approval glitch leaves her with payment responsibility for part of her medical bills. Upon recovery, subway stairs are looming for travel to clients. Income has ceased and savings are depleted. My sister is always there for my family in a multitude of ways, so I hope this can help her. The funds from this campaign will be used for medical related and living expenses to get her through this and hopefully hang onto her apartment and work. Even the smallest donation is very much appreciated, every little bit counts. Thanks for your support!
