We are raising money for our beloved friend, Jessica Wattenbarger, as she fights her battle with Stage IV breast cancer (which has metastasized to the bones).
BUT this is not a hopeless situation! She found out in March, and has been working with her oncologist and doctor to find the best solution. She pursued an immediate route of combined regimen from her oncologist and M.D., and has had periodic monitoring from her oncologist and the treatment is working! Her oncologist has confirmed the tumors are shrinking and doesn’t want her to change course.
However, some of this treatment is not covered by her insurance; unfortunately, and it is quite expensive. She is in round 3 of her treatment and Jess has done everything to handle the financial burden herself, and we thought it was time to reach out to the community she has served her entire life.
We have had dozens of requests from friends, neighbors, and even acquaintances asking how they can help, and we are hoping this can give everybody a chance to give back to her.
So many people have been touched by Jessica's every giving spirit and for those of you who don't know her, we want you to know she is a faith filled woman who has 6 amazing children (plus two very giving daughter-in-laws and son-in-law) and 4 beautiful grandchildren.
It's not in Jessica's nature to ask anyone for help, she is the one who is constantly giving her heart and soul to everyone. Jessica has been an inspiration to everyone who has been blessed to have her in their lives. We don't think she has ever turned her head away from someone in need.
Thanking everyone in advance for their support and please share.
Please feel free to comment as to how Jess has been an inspiration or had an impact on you.
