Jenny & Tom's Fund

Hi friends and family of Jenny Orlando,

Thank you for making your way to this page.  This page was created by friends of Jenny and Tom as a way to help them during this difficult time.   

What happened:  On July 4th, 2017, doctors at Mass General removed a malignant tumor from Jenny's brain.  Jenny  underwent major brain surgery to remove the tumor.  She is currently at Spaulding Rehab and will be home in early August.  Soon after, Jenny will begin chemo and radiation treatment.  

In the meantime: Tom will be managing his full time job along with being Dad to their three children: Lily (8), Belle(6), and Avery(2).   The girls are home from school for the summer.  Tom will be busy working as well as shuttling the girls to playdates and swim classes, cooking dinners, cleaning, etc .  Their youngest daughter, Avery, will be with babysitters and daycare since Jenny can't be home with her.

Why this page: Much of the medical costs will be covered by their insurance.  However, unexpected costs will undoubtedly arise. (i.e. Avery's new babysitter/daycare, cleaning lady etc).

At this time it's our hope that Tom's focus can be on Jenny's recovery and on their children and not on any financial burdens.  

Thank you for your help, your prayers, and your positive thoughts!
