Jennifer's Lifeline

Jennifer's son Oliver, was diagnosed with Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (late infantile) in 2014. She has devoted her life to learning about this rare condition, and providing unwavering love and care to Oliver. Although MLD is terminal, Oliver remained stable for quite some time. Until recently, after one of many hospital admissions; Jen was faced with the heart wrenching decision of whether to continue to medically intervene to prolong her son's life.

Oliver entered hospice care on September 9, 2017. Jen is by his side, comforting her boy through this last leg of an arduous journey.

As you may imagine Jennifer's finances are limited as her full time job has simply been caring for her ailing son, as he regressed and drifted away from her. This campaign seeks to cover memorial costs for Oliver. Let's let Jen focus on processing this unthinkable grief, by helping limit the burden of funeral costs
