Jen's Flight to Fight

Organized by: Hope Meador

THE STORY:

In September 2011, Jennifer Brady was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer of the lung and successfully completed chemotherapy, radiation, and preventative brain radiation with all treatments ending in March 2012. After a quiet year with nothing but recovery and "normal" life, Jennifer and Ben embarked on their next chapter: parenthood. While pregnant, life threw them yet another curve ball when a lump was discovered in Jennifer's lower back in late July 2014. A biopsy confirmed the same cancer had returned, this time to the fatty tissues in the back as well as the liver. Jen was able to have a healthy baby boy and started to get good news that the cancer was gone. In the spring of 2015, the cancer returned and spread and Jen is having to pave her own course to treatment. The good news is insurance approved Jen's immunotherapy treatment and she will begin treatment now in Portland. The bad news is that she will have to fly to Portland every other week for at least the next two to three months. We created this site to help support Jen and her caregiver in making these flights. All funds will be used exclusively for medical-related travel expenses.
