New Short Tem Goal $15,000! This includes our initial goal of $5000.

We are so grateful for all who have helped us reach our initial goal to ease the Jakkola family's immediate needs!! Thank YOU!!

Instead of making a large one-time request for assistance, we have decided to post smaller short term goals throughout Sarah's transition and beyond as needs arise.  

We hope that you will join us as we tackle this new goal!

As Sarah prepares at work for her retirement, she is also needing to prepare financially at home. Sensibility, she is strategically planning for the jump from a monthly income to receiving disability and additional medical coverage. 

Disability will not equal her current income and not all her therapies will be covered by Medicare or the benevolence fund at Bozeman Health Care.

A financial cushion would make this transition more stable.

Sarah's wishes, after retirement, include staying in their current home as it is a great fit for her and the kids.  After researching other housing options it really is the best for them. Government funded housing options are not readily available in Bozeman.

Continuing needed therapies, seeking eye care, meeting deductibles, replacing her mechanically challenged car and paying on past medical debt are all necessary, ongoing expenses.  

These are financial expenses that we, as her friends and family, can cover to show our continuing love and support for Sarah.

We hope you will join us!

Please feel free to share Sarah's story with your friends and family.

Previous Post:
Sarah has been the director at Selah Early Learning Academy at E-Free Church in Bozeman, MT for the past 5 years.  She is a single mom with two wonderful kids, one in high school and the other recently graduated.

Sarah has Huntington's Disease which is a progressively neurodegenerative, terminal disease.  To learn more about HD go to  Huntington's Disease Society Association 

Taking the advice of her medical team she is making preparations to retire as soon as possible.

She has been unisured resulting in significant medical debt for past treatments and she will have onging treatment and medications which won't be covered until she is fully retired.

Thank you for standing in hope with the Jakkola Family and covering them with your prayers and support duing this time. 

The outpouring of love has been deeply felt and appreciated!
