This is a fundraiser to help Jill Hunter (Hodge) through her battle against cancer. Help us show her how much love and support she has!

In the early part of this year, Jillian Hunter (Hodge) was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 26. After a long period of tests and waiting, doctors have confirmed that the cancer is Melanoma and it is located in several parts of her body. In February, Jill, her husband Josh, and their beautiful son Josh Jr. made a trip to Houston to seek treatment options at MD Anderson (one of the top cancer facilities in America). They have decided to move forward with chemotherapy.

At this point, we don’t know what the total expenses will be-but we felt we needed to get something started to alleviate some of the stress on Jill and Josh so that they can focus their energy on treatment. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses, trips to Houston every 3-4 weeks for treatment, as well as daily living expenses. No donation is too small and by the way, no donation is too big. These funds will help ease the financial burden for the Hunter family.

On a more personal note, I would like to say that Jill is one of the most caring, tenacious and beautiful women I have ever met. Over the years, Jill and I have grown together not just as cousins, but as friends. I still remember all of the laughing, talking about boys, singing at the top of our lungs, and crazy adventures we had as kids. Memories I wouldn’t trade for anything. As we both grow and become adults we still remain just as close. She is my safe zone and voice of reason. When I found out she was diagnosed with cancer, Jill was the one calming me down. She told me she knew everything was going to be okay and that God was on her side. What faith! Jillian is a woman of God-even in moments of fear and mystery. I’ve always admired that about her. To my girl: Jillian, I love you with every fiber in my body-we’ve been through a million things together, we’ll get through this one too. You have a mountain of support behind you. XO

I would like to thank each and every one of you. The overwhelming amount of love, courage, and support given to our family in this time has been incredible. Part of the reason I have started this fundraiser is because of the remarkable amount of people asking how they can help. THANK YOU for everything, I love you all.
