Jennifer's Courageous Fight

In November of 2016, Jennifer was diagnosed with Cholangio Carcinoma, also known as Bile duct Cancer, after what she thought was a Gall Bladder attack.  On December 21st of that year, she had as much of her liver removed that would allow her to stay alive.  She underwent Chemo treaments from February to April of 2017.  A month after her treatments ended, she had a scan that showed that the cancer was all gone.  She went back for her four month check up and recieved tragic news.  Her cancer was back, not only in her liver, but in both of her lungs as well. 
  Last week, she went to Portland for a biopsy of her liver and continued onto Boston to consult with a specialist there.  Currently, there is no Cure for Cholangio Carcinoma. But, there are treaments aimed to maintain or shrink the tumors.  Jennifer and Dave are heading to Cancer Treatment Center In Pennsylvania this week to get a second opinion.  
  Jennifer has a 9 year old Son Dawson. And as you can imagine, Jennifer will do whatever it takes to stay as healthy as possible to watch her little boy grow up.  
  Traveling great distances to get the help she needs will be essential to her health since Cholangio Carcinoma is very rare form of cancer.  The travel expenses, the deductibles, the co-pays are all expenses that they will have to continue to pay, even though Jenn will not be able to work full time.  
  Please find it in your heart to help any amount that you can, For this young Mother, her husband and her son,  So that they may continue to maintain a "normal" life for their son while they battle this demon.
