We are uniting together to help Jen Williams with her battle against Breast Cancer. Funds will be used for Jen's medical costs and expenses.

Jennifer “Jen” Williams is a dedicated mother, friend and second grade teacher at Underwood GT Magnet Elementary in Raleigh, NC. She came to Underwood in 2005, after taking a break from teaching, to be at home to raise her two boys (now 12 and 15). Jen is a caring, outgoing and compassionate teacher who captures the attention of her students and provides them with a strong foundation for academic and social success. She completed her National Board Certification in 2010 to become a more effective teacher to better serve them.

Her smile is constant and her positive, unselfish personality is contagious to all those around her.

In March of this year, life threw Jen a curve ball when a lump was detected in her breast through a routine exam. After a biopsy and several tests, Jen was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Despite this devastating news she continued to walk into work each day with a smile on her face, determined to teach our children.
On May 9th, Jen underwent a double mastectomy. She is recovering at home but she will soon begin a grueling regimen of chemo therapy and radiation.

With the outrageous cost of health care and the limited benefits of health insurance, the expenses are already becoming a burden. We would like to offer Jen relief and help lessen the burden and worry of medical bills.

Being a school teacher and a single mom of two boys, Jen’s income is limited. On behalf of the Underwood Elementary staff, students and parents we are striving to reach a monetary goal of $10,000 to help with Jen’s expenses.

Please share this website with anyone and everyone you know to help meet this goal!!!!
