Friends and family are helping rasie money to offset the financail burden of medical treatments and living expenses for Jennifer,

Friends and family are raising money for Jennifer Hirsch to help with medical bills and living expenses while she fights cancer for the seond time. Please find it in your hearts to help! Your donation could help save the life of a young and vibrant woman with so much to live for! The following is her story.

In June 2010, Jennifer's world came to a screeching halt when she was diagnosed with Colon and Vaginal Cancer. After enduring months of treatments that drained her and her family emotionally and financially, Jennifer had a short repreive from her struggles. Then in 2011 Jennifer was blindsided by another devastating blow. She was diagnosed with a tumor on her only remaining kidney. Jennifer began treatment again for Kidney Cancer but has recently had to discontinue treatments due to reocurring septic infections. She is in need of a colonoscopy bag to keep stool leaking into her system from infecting her blood before she can continue her cancer treatments but she is unable to come up with the funds to have the procedure done and Medicaid is dragging their feet in any assistance. Her situation has become dire. Her boyfriend, Carlos, is the sole provider for their household but because of Jennifer's medical bills from reoccuring infections and many impromptu visits to the Emergency Room the couple are in urgent need of assistance to remain living in their home and to continue Jennifer's treatments.
Cancer affects more than just a person's health. It often takes its toll emotionally and financially on those afflicted as well.
We hope to be able to create some peace of mind for Jennifer and Carlos while she continues her battle against this disease. By lifting some of the financial burden placed on her and her family during these terrible times, Jennifer can concentrate on the one thing she really really needs to-getting better.

While any and all donations are so greatly appreciated, she also needs encouragement as well so please feel free to send her a message of hope as well.. Thank you in advance for your kindness, your generosity and your prayers.
