Jennifer's Cancer Fund

Raised by 28 people in 28 months
Dear friends and family,

Jennifer was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in 2012. For the past 4 years, she has been dealing with chemotherapy, transfusions and white blood cell treatments to keep the cancer at bay. Despite all of this, she returned to graduate school to pursue a career helping others as a mental health therapist. Fighting cancer for so long is a hard and tiring battle, and Jennifer has had to take a break from her studies due to fatigue and to dealing with medical treatments. 

Recently, Jennifer's leukemia entered an accelerated phase (with signs of a blast phase), and she has needed more frequent and stronger treatments. At the same time, the chmotherapy drugs have begun to cause liver damage. Jennifer's doctor's have told her that going forward, she will need to have a bone marrow transplant or find a clinical trial that matches up with her specific condition and health.

For all of her working life, Jen has focused on finding jobs where she can help others. She has served those most in need through jobs in vocational rehab, supporting individuals with disabilities and the homeless. jen is striving to get back to her graduate studies, so that she can complete her degree and continue trying to make a positive impact in her community. But what makes things hard for Jennifer is that she has tried so hard to help others, it is hard for her to reach out for help herself. That's why we have created this page for her, and we hope that you can help.

Since Jennifer cannot work or go to school until her condition gets better, any kind of contribution to Jennifer's GoFundMe account could help pay for things like: a wig, household expenses, meals, rides to treatment, medical expenses, etc.
