Jess Kicks Carcinoid Cancer's Ass

Anyone who knows Jess, knows she's been through hell and back, and throughout everthing she has done nothing but stay positive, and do everything she can for everyone around her. She was recently diagnosed with Carcinoid Syndrome after finding Carcinoid Tumors in her small intestines, ovaries, lymph system, urinary tract, blood, and liver. She has so far received two major surgeries to remove as many tumors as possible. She has had a few minor outpatient surgeries to address complications and infections, she has had countless blood and iron transfusions, multiple treatments of catheter administered chemo directly into her liver, and as of now is expected to have monthly chemo injections for life. 
Due to the rarity of this cancer, and the extent of the spread, they have had to bring in the leading Carcinoid Specialists from across the country to handle her surgeries and treatment. Obviously these things have added up in costs and bills and trust me when I say this, Jess is the last person to ask for help.
When I mentioned a gofundme she almost punched me in the face. For years Jess has been on her own, raising her little sister Liv.  She calls herself "SisterMom" and with Liv being one one of the top high school softball recruits in the nation, club softball season isn't exactly cheap. Jess has never once complained or asked for help from anyone.  So I will.

We just wanna thank everyone who has shown love and support for her.  We will keep you updated as she continues to kick ass as usual!

Scott and Liv
