Jen's Love Your Face Fund The friends & family of the Ducketts are uniting to help with Jen's medical expenses. Please show your support!

The Duckett family's life changed on October 8, 2011, however with the grace of God they are all alive and with us today.

On Saturday October 8, 2011 Jen and her family were heading home from picking up her step-son and traveling on 169 Hwy to enjoy a family weekend. The family was hit head on by an elderly gentleman that was traveling the wrong way on the highway. Everyone in the accident was seriously injured, but we are very pleased to say they all survived and are with us today.

Jen is in critical condition and has a very long recovery ahead of her. Jen sustained multiple injuries and has nearly broken every bone in her body and will be hospitalized for months. Jen is still fighting and hanging on. As of today she has adult respiratory distress syndrome and is seriously ill. She has a very long road ahead of her and as of today the doctors are unable to do any additional surgeries until around Thanksgiving. They do expect her to recover and walk out of the hospital. Their main focus right now is that Jen's lungs can heal and she gets rest. She is expected to remain in the ICU Unit for several more weeks. She will not be able to return to work for possibly 6 months or more.

Her husband Andy is a self employed electrician and due to his injuries will be unable to work for a few months due to a fracture to his right arm. Jen's son had a severe laceration to his forehead. Her step son sustained a broken leg and damage to his liver and spleen as a result of the accident. A small child (a friend of the family) sustained a broken clavicle.

Her husband and the 3 children have all been released and are at home healing now. Jen will remain in the hospital for quite some time and is in need of prayers and any support. At this time the family has not been notified of any insurance coverage for the at fault driver.

As you can imagine, this unexpected family crisis will take quite a toll on Jen and her family. With Jen’s medical bills growing every day we ask for your help so the hospital bills are not weighing heavily on them as they recover.

Jen has brightened the lives of so many with her positive attitude, caring heart and giving spirit. Bringing smiles to all that she encounters with her catchy phrases: "Love Your Face, Miss Your Face, and Have a Quality Day"

We know that Jen would appreciate any and all of your contributions, thoughts and prayers. Please give from the heart and forward this site to others to help us pass it along. If you would like to send cards or donations by mail you may send them to

8395 Mel Rose Drive
Lenexa, KS 66214.
