Team Jill's Fight Fund

$14,810 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 127 people in 46 months
10 years ago, in 2005, Jill was diagnosed with breast cancer.  In 2007 she had a recurrence, and she physically did everything she possibly could to prevent another one, but on  October 30th, 2015, she learned that her cancer was back and had metastasized primarily to her brain.  Jill immediately began undergoing aggressive radiation and steroid treatments, and there has been an outpouring of love, care and concern.  Many people have been asking how they can help, so this Go-FundMe site was started in an effort to help alleviate some of the financial difficulties they will soon be facing with loss of income and growing medical bills.  

Jill is an amazing person, mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend.  Her strength and resilience is inspiring, and her resolve is steadfast.  To look the belly of this beast in the eye for the third time in 10 years - while only being in her 40's - is unimaginable.  With everyone's help, we can make this most difficult of situations more bearable in some ways.  

Jill and Derek are extremely appreciative of everyone's kindness, love and support, and Team Jill would like to thank you for your thoughtful and generous donation.

Hi everyone... Sorry I haven't posted an update on here. With so much back and forth on Facebook, it's easy to forget that some people might not be on there. For that reason, I wanted to copy and paste Jill's status update from this morning, which is filled with hope and gratitude. ♥ Here's what she said:

"The kindness and generosity shown to us by everyone leaves us feeling so blessed and loved every minute of the day. My emotions have been up and down, but mostly up because of ALL of you. It's so hard to thank so many individually, so I hope this FB status captures all at least. Thankful for the meals from neighborhood families this week and the meal train...wow...the doctors want me to gain weight, well I know I will now! Received a special gift the other night from Kassie’s soccer team and former soccer team families with a special card written by each girl, and a generous donation made to the GoFund...which is amazing beyond words. Last night I received a special card from Kyle's hockey Northern Cyclones team for twice a month cleaning for my house! Talk about what makes a girl happy = a clean house! Derek and I were so stunned and appreciative. The employees I work with or even just say hello to in the halls...and some I don't know at all... we have received Stop & Shop gift cards and they set up Pea Pod to have food delivered for us. WOW! The rides to appointments, people stopping by, the phone calls, the texts, the emails...I may not be able to respond to them all right away, but I do read them. Electronics can be over-stimulating right now. Today I am going for another radiation treatment, followed by a follow-up with the radiation oncologist at LGH, as well as discuss the results of my PET Scan from yesterday. Please pray that this beast didn't spread... Tomorrow is a big day. Meeting with Mass General for a 2nd opinion with a highly recommended Breast Cancer Oncologist. It's going to be a longgggg day. I love you all with all my heart. My kids and my husband are also so appreciative of all the love and support they have received as well. Trying to keep normalcy in the household as best I can."
