Jennifer Hast and her husband have been part of our team at the North Texas Troublemakers for years, even though they live in Oklahoma and can only occasionally get down our way. They've been regulars at our annual Blogorado gathering, too.
Sadly, Jennifer has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. Both her mother and her sister have already survived this disease, so as you can imagine, she's taking it very seriously. She's asking for help with some big medical expenses, plus the cost of being off work for a month to recover from the procedure. You can read all about it at her GiveSendGo fund-raiser. She was in the process of starting her own business, but that's obviously on hold until she can put this behind her.
My wife and I have already donated, and we'll both be very grateful if you'll please read what Jennifer has to say, then contribute what you can to help her get through this. She's worth it. (I'm not just saying that because of the utterly delicious lumpia she sometimes brings to Blogorado, either! They're a bonus. If I could figure out how to wheedle a lumpia out of her for every $10 my readers contribute, I would in a heartbeat!)
Thanks in advance.
