The Story

In February of 2016, while most grade 12 students were busy choosing graduation gowns and applying to universities, Jenna Sauer was diagnosed with Mixed Germ Cell Ovarian Cancer. Since then Jenna has battled courageously through 3 surgeries, 11 cycles of chemotherapy, including 2 high doses which were followed by stem cell transplants. Medical experts have advised that the next step in Jenna's journey is to take Cotellic. This drug is not covered and comes at a cost of $9000.00 per month. Many of you have asked how you can help and these offers have been deeply appreciated. We are hoping to help the Sauer family offset the financial expense of this treatment. Thank-you in advance for your never ending support, love and prayers.

It is with great sadness that we post this update.
On Tuesday, July 25 Jenna Sauer lost her courageous battle with Ovarian Cancer. Jenna passed away peacefully surrounded by those who loved her with all of their hearts. Never has there been such a fighter with the best support system that anyone could ask for. Thanks to the generosity of all of you the Sauers were able to use the funds donated to You Caring to try different drugs and treatments. No stone was left unturned. None of us will ever forget Jenna's beauty inside and out, her humour or her kind heart. It was Jenna's wish that a legacy of giving be created in her name. In lieu of flowers you can donate to You Caring.com or to the Jenna Sauer Memorial Fund accessible at any CIBC branch. (00809-3979911)
In time, the Sauer family will choose the best way to use these donations to honour their beloved daughter and sister.
On behalf of the Sauer family thanks to each and all of you for your support over the past 18 months.
Lesley, Catriona and Krista
