The family and friends of Jennifer Sykes are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

     Jennifer is a hard working single mom with stage 3 breast cancer. She has continued to work a minimum of 37 hours per week (sometimes more) during  her chemo treatments.   It has not been easy and at times, she wanted to give up.  The state that she lives in does not have a supplemental program that can help her and her Employer does not qualify for the Family Leave Act. With minimal help from family, she has managed to continue to support herself and her son financially.   On November 28th, she will undergo the 2nd part of her treatment plan – the surgeries.  She will be off of work and recovering for 5 – 6 weeks. The donations will be used for prescriptions, co-pays and medical expenses.
On Sunday, November 11th, 2012 at 7 pm, Jennifer’s friends will be holding a special celebration  / fundraising event in honor of her 37th birthday and her graduation from dose dense chemotherapy. The event is affectionately named by Jennifer “WIG & SHOUT” and will be held at The SHOUT! House in Glendale, AZ.  We invite EVERYONE who can, to please attend and show your support for her.   A special raffle will be held that evening for two $100 Visa gift cards.  By donating $15.00  here, you will be entered in the raffle that evening to win one of those 2 gift cards (need not be present to win) There will be additional raffle tickets sold that night for various prizes.   
      Those who know Jennifer, have watched her fight and be very vocal about the struggles of her fight.  Her friends and family also know that Jennifer has a hard time asking for help and does not like doing it.  She has asked that instead of asking for donations, we do this event and raffle to give those that are able to help her and her son, a chance to get something back as well.
       Jennifer  will donate a portion of the  proceeds from the raffle as a donation to her 2 favorite charities -   Don't be a Chump! Check for a Lump! / The Wig Out Program  & The F C Cancer Foundation / Dyin 2 Live Program.  These 2 programs have supported Jennifer tremendously during her cancer journey and this will be her way of giving back through your support.
