The Story

Hey everyone! If you're fortunate enough to know Jen Collins, you know that she is one of the most positive and encouraging people you will ever meet. 
Jen was recently diagnosed with myeloid leukemia at age 25. She is now undergoing chemotherapy and soon will have radiation as well.  After a month of treatment, she might also need a bone marrow transplant. 
In July 2012 Jen was hit by a car while she was walking in downtown Portland. Since then, she has had back pain and has struggled to recover from the accident. She has been such an amazing trooper through her struggles and now she really needs our help.
Jen started developing painful sores in her mouth so she went to urgent care. After her symptoms got progressively worse she went to urgent care two more times and after receiving antibiotics and magic mouth wash, nothing was helping. Jen went to urgent care three times and no doctors did blood work. When she was able to see her primary doctor he did blood work and he discovered her leukemia. Jen is a fighter, she will not give up or give in. 
Jen missed three weeks of work due to her sores and eventual ulcer that developed in her mouth. She will now be in the hospital for at least a month and is obviously unable to work during that time. With no income and medical bills piling up she is struggling to figure out how she will pay them. 
On Jen's behalf I am here to ask for your help! Let's rally around and help Jen with these medical bills and her expenses during this difficult time. She needs to fight for her life, not worry about money! Thank you for taking time to read her story, your donations are so appreciated. 
God bless.

Hello Everyone! I just wanted to give an update on Jen Collins the treatment we are going through and how we are doing. But before I start that let me thank everyone that has reached out to us and shown us so much support during this difficult time in our lives. We truly appreciate having each and everyone of you in our lives and cant thank you enough for your love and support!

So here is the short update on us. We have been in the hospital for about 5 weeks now and Finished our first round of Chemotherapy Treatment. We will have more rounds of Chemo after she recovers from this initial round. We have managed to stay positive and keep our spirits up though this time, thanks to the support of some amazing friends and family.
