We need your help to find Jennifer affordable, clean housing nearer her family, as she faces a new phase of medical needs related to cancer.

Dear friends and family,
We are contacting you at the request of Jennifer Henderson, in an effort to find Jen clean and affordable housing. As many of you know, Jen was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2008. She has since gone through various treatments, closed her state-funded school in the Berkshires, and lived with family in transition. Jen worked her entire life with others in mind, but with no plan for early retirement or long-term care. Jen has chosen to move closer to her daughter, Christa, in the Pioneer Valley. She'll have access to good health facilities, be close enough to the Berkshires that friends could visit, and she'll have a primary caregiver in Christa to help out on a daily basis. Christa wants to make this happen but needs your help to afford housing. Jen is on a list for state housing opportunities, but that list is long and Jen needs care NOW. She needs a safe, warm place to live with Peter and she needs a daily caregiver who can attend to both their medical needs. She'll also have access to a wonderful community at Cancer Connection, an organization that supports people living with cancer and their caregivers. Can you help us raise money for Jen so that we can provide affordable, clean housing for her? We have utilized all the resources we have at our dispense in supporting Jen up until this point, but we need help at this time. We appreciate all your prayers and generosity.
