Family, Friends and Supporters of Jillian Morris-Jenkins are coming together to raise money for her brain tumor surgery.


My name is Jillian Morris-Jenkins and I am the longest living survivor in the world of Neuroblastoma Cancer Stage IV. Today, I am seeking assistance for a life-saving surgery.

At the age of two, I was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer Stage IV. I underwent two major surgeries, heavy doses of chemotherapy and full body irradiation, a bone marrow transplant as well as other treatments. I have been cancer free and managed to deal with the various long-term effects for 27 years.

Many who know me can affirm that I am an over achiever. I graduated high school at the age of 16; hold an Associates degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences; a Bachelor’s degree in Cinema and Television Arts; and in the process of completing my Master’s degree in Apparel Merchandising. I have worked in the Advertising, Entertainment, and Fashion industries including Non-Profit organizations (such as Interface Children Family Services, Coalition to End Family Violence, and People Assisting the Homeless (PATH). l am currently a Wardrobe Stylist and am very passionate about what I do. I am grateful for my accomplishments considering the obstacles I’ve had to overcome.

Recently, I have been scheduled for a life-saving surgery on June 6, 2011. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor that has doubled in size in the last two years. The decision to perform this surgery was short notice but is indeed necessary. I have found the courage and strength to fight and I will preserve my rights to live a life of longevity.

To achieve this, I am asking my family, friends, community and you to help in raising funds that will assist me in preparing for surgery, the surgery itself and the needed support to be sustained afterward.
