Help Jenn say “Bye, Felicia!”

As many of you know, Jenn Shepherd was diagnosed with a brain tumor on May 24 after suffering from intense headaches for about 6 weeks. An MRI revealed a mass on her brain and 5 days later she had an open craniotomy to resect the tumor. Fortunately, surgery went very well and the neurosurgeon was able to remove ~99% of the tumor. 

This has all moved very quickly and there has been very little time to share the news widely, much less put a plan in place financially. 

Jenn has high deductible insurance and will need $7,000 to cover her deductible. Beyond that, she will be out of work during recovery and treatment (an unknown period of time). It is our goal to raise at least the amount needed to cover her deductible and living expenses while she recovers from surgery the next few weeks. Anything over that will go towards living expenses and further medical bills that are likely to follow. 

Any donation helps! Small streams create big rivers!
