Move Mountains for Loren

Loren Jewell is a firefighter for Fairfax County, she has a 5 year old daughter, Skylar, and a loving fiancé, Billy LeDrew.

Loren was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor which is pressing on her optic nerve. It needs to be removed as soon as possible to avoid causing blindness. We are rallying behind Loren to help ease the financial burden she will incur with this surgery. Between a mortgage, child care, car payments, medical bills ( we all know insurance doesn't cover nearly enough), and everyday expenses it will take a strain on her.

Many of you know this isn't Loren's first brush with tumors. When she was 14 she battled Ewing's Sarcoma, she underwent chemotherapy and came out swinging. She is a true fighter, a great friend, loving mother and fiancé. We are hoping with the help of the community to ease the stress of this situation, money should be the last thing someone should have to worry about in times like these.

If you can donate even just $1, every bit helps.
