March29,2014 was my daughters second worse day of her life. The 1st being the day her sister passed away. One day you are fine & loving life, playing with Jennifers only son Jonah. Running around playing tag, building sand castles on the beach, taking road trips, jumping on trampolines & doing what kid's love best being active!! BAM in a split second your life forever changes.
Hi everyone reading this I'm Susan Weiner, Jennifer Kahns Mother. I'm asking everyone and anyone to see if you can help our WARRIOR!
On that dreadful day March29,2014 Jennifer slipped and fell at TARGET in Farmington. Soley by their negligance. Jennifer had just walked in the store on a dry night & had to use the restroom. No caution signs or anything were in place to alarm her that the floor had been wet. Straight up in the air she went & landed flat on her back while smacking her head on the floor. Immediately noticing her pants were wet  with a clear substance (WATER). Jennifer screamed out but nobody heard her. Being the fighter she is while in shock she tried standing to get to the Starbucks counter. That's where she yelled for help and slid back down to the ground awaiting for the paremedics in HORRIFIC pain. 
Yes the next question asked is did my daughter sue?That answer is yes and due to pure CORRUPTION by the honorable Federal Judge  and TARGET my baby lost. As did her attourney whose job was manipulated by the judge and given a 5 minute time limit on closing arguments. We sat in that disgusting court room day after day while Jen was in such agony. Only for the verdict to come back NOT GUILTY!! Now that CORRUPTED TARGET whose witnesses lied under oath have the nerve to come after my daughter for money, being that it took up their prescious court time. What, my daughter's entire life has been flipped upsidedown  by your ignorance and negligence. I don't think so TARGET!!
Since Jens accident she has endured 6 very painful and dangerous surgeries. Including the fact she now has a neurobladder & has to straight cath 4-5 times a day. There's now an intrathecal spinal cord pump the size of a hockey puck bulging from her stomach that has to be drained & filled every 3 months for life. As a direct result of the break in her back she has a very serious form of Arachnoiditis, a debilitating nerve disease. There is no cure and will only continue to get worse&worse as the scans are already showing. At this moment Jen depends on a walker with a seat as her legs can give out at anytime without warning. This is used for short distance & a manual wheelchair for any length. In which I nor her Dad can push anymore. So Bobby, Jens fiance is the only one who can truly push it. Problem is that he is constantly working and suffered a heart attack himself a year ago. Jennifer is a prisoner within her own body. 
At this moment she has over$100,000.00 in medical bills not including the thousands shes's been sent to collection for. Jennifer has to now file for bankruptcy because this has completely killed her credit.This is just another stress in her life. Her walker completely broke and is the reason she fell a couple weeks ago. By the grace of GOD her church Orcahard Grove had 1 that was not being used & gave it to her. Not the exact 1 she needs but Jen is so overwhelmed that someone reached out to her. Due to Medicare only allowing patients to get life saving equiptment every 5 years. This to say the least is a bit unpractical. Not to mention they're living in a very unsafe place. It's not handicapped equipt at all. The landlord will not allow any ramps to be built. Plus the laundry is in the basement and Jen can no longer use stairs. They really had there hearts set on an open ranch which they could make handicap equipt. Jens faith is very strong & feels that in time that will happen. Jennifer desperately needs an electronic scooter along with a car that it can get in. This will give her more independance that she so badly yearns for. Also this way she can attend & do many more things with her pride and joy Jonah Marley Boudreau who is 6 now. Jen has missed out on every event, field trip, sports,family outing, holidays etc because of the severity of her situation. Her friends through a surprise 40th Birthday party for her which was so kind. Unfortunately Jen was in an emergency procedure. So her 40th was spent in the hospital. The verbal abuse she's taken from some in the medical field is beyond disgusting! ! In which Jen has journaled from day 1 of the accident & continues to this day.
My daughter's entire life has been dedicated to helping other's in a judgement free zone! Her passion to help others not just physically & menatlly taking care of them but advocating as well. It's nothing I've ever seen before and makes me a proud Mother. Jennifer is fighting so very hard in this no end battle. QUITTING is not in her vocabulary !!
That is why I am starting this Go Fund Me account on my babys behalf. PLEASE open your hearts and minds to rally behind this WARRIOR. As Jen so clearly knows better then anyone that if you can't donate, that you simply spread the word. We can't let MILLION $ CORPORATION'S  get away with this like TARGET has!! Jen has a very hard time asking for help & was very hesitant about letting me do this for her. There is so much she needs to make her safer. Jen wanted me to make this very clear that none of this is for materialistic items. Like I said my daughter very seldom put herself 1st. PLEASE HELP MY DAUGHTER SHE WOULD HELP ANYONE!

Thank you so very much,
Susan Weiner: Jennifer Kahns Mom& #1 fan!

Hi everyone who is taking the time & generosity for helping my brave daughter. This is Sue, Jens Mom and I just wanted to give an update. Jennifer has a tremendous amount on her plate at the moment so I am writing on her behalf.
My daughter who I know better then anyone is beyond a fighter & a giver. Since she was a little girl everyone has come before her. For she couldn't stand seeing people suffer so Jen would try and help in any way possible!!
Jen has been going through a tremendous amount of tests & procedures lately. It has been confirmed that they were 2 mini strokes she suffered in the last month. Amongst the fact that her spine is deteriorating at an alarming rate. Therefore the pain is becoming even worse then it is daily. Yet she won't numb herself with pills. Next month her urologist will be determine which surgery will be more suitable for her bladder. They've talked about stem cell transplants but it's not done in Michigan. There are specialists at the Mayo Clinic that could be an answer. The problem lies with my daughter's insurance. Her energy has become lower due to low blood counts and other concerns. Through this all my daughter has completely changed her lifestyle & completely counts on faith to get her through day to day. As a parent this is a nightmare because there's no magic wand. Let me assure you that this fund solely goes to trying to make my daughter's life more bearable & safe. So please we ask that you continue to help her in anyway possible. All Jen wants is to be the best Mom she can with what she's been dealt. As my WARRIOR daughter would say let go let GOD.
Thanks,
Susie, Jens Mom fan

Thank you to everyone who has donated. It means the world to me. I have several tests next week including a procedure on Wednesday. Since the 2 mini TIA that I've suffered it's left me with some confusion & terrible headaches. Yet I continue fighting everyday & that will never stop. My bathroom equipment that we got doesn't fit over the toilet so we have to take it back. Very bummed about that. So I continue to take it 1 day at a time. Not being able to drive makes me sad because I don't like being trapped home. So I ask for the continued support & prayers. Also if anyone else knows of a fundraiser that could help please let me know.
Thank you & God Bless

Just a very quick update for all interested. I was very anxious & nervous leading up to this appointment. So I journaled, prayed continuously & meditated. This is my"NEW" life & I will face it head on whatever it is. Let me tell you this Dr was beyond incredible. It's no wonder he is the head & Chairman of Urology. My Mom and I were completely blown away by his intelligence, compassion & empathy. This Dr gave us more information then we had heard since the accident. I was actually spoken to like a human being & listened to. Yes I will for sure be having surgery but I now may have a couple options. 1st I have to get an ultrasound on my kidney's just to rule out a couple things. Next I will go in the hospital as an out patient where several tests will be done to decifer which road we'll travel. That same day this incredible Dr will sit down with me & our plan will be set into action. This Dr didn't care what kind of insurance card I carried just wants to help. The most incredible sign that I got was that he's going on a medical ministry trip to Africa. It's his 11th year and takes 1 of his residents withhim for 2 weeks. Not only was my prayer answered but God sent me a pay it forward 1. Since suffering 2 mini strokes, it's continuously being watched. Next week we see the spinal surgeon to decide the next route with that. Just taking it 1 day at a time for that's all I can do. Thanks for the continued support & prayers. We ask that you continue to help build my mountain.
All my love,
Fighting Warrior Jen

Good evening everyone. Just a little update for those that are following. I have suffered 2 mini strokes in the last 2 weeks. These ate being caused from all the falls and repeated concussions. Yesterday I had to have emergency blood transfusions and magnesium infusions. My spine is twice the size it was last time they looked. So that is why the pain has become even more excruciating. We see the head of Urology Monday in regards to having a more permanent catheter put in place. Hopefully they listen since this is my body and will eleviate the chronic UTI & massive discomfort. My Mom will be with me who is my biggest advocate so they no we mean buisness!! Also the durable medical equipment for the toilet doesn't fit so we have to return it. Which bums me out but that's life. I can no longer drive for the time being. The reality is it's way to dangerous. Since I can't afford a driver this saddens me deeply.
Thank you again to all of the incredible generous people who have donated. I will keep fighting but I ask that you continue to help. Remember that any denominations count!! Please continue to pray for my family and I.
Sincerely,
Jen the WARRIOR
