Meet, Jaclyn. An incredible dancer, talented journalist, advocate, loving wife, and all round badass. In 2010, two and a half years after losing her mother to breast cancer, Jaclyn was diagnosed with grade 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma (the most aggressive form of brain tumor.) Despite not having health insurance at the time and still coping with the loss of her mom, Jax started what would become seven and half years of kicking Cancer's ass! Never letting it rob her of her kindness, love of life, or her sense of humor, the universe smiled on her and sent her Todd. Best friend, husband, and partner in battle. They say the true measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Todd is a giant. (Read his post for his wife, here.)
We started this fund because for the past six months Jaclyn has been fighting for her life. She needs a miracle, and if you've ever met her, then you already believe in them. As an advocate for other Cancer patients, she always said, "The best advice I can give is to just, HELP. Don't say “let me know if you need something” because they never will." —She and Todd never have. So we're taking excellent advice, and just, helping.
With Jaclyn unable to work and Todd dedicating every moment he can to be by his wife's side; the bills are piling up. We're asking for your support so we can give them peace of mind during this devastating time, so they can focus on being together.
Please take a moment to send them some love, every dollar amount helps. If you're unable to contribute financially at this time, please share it and help us get the word out.
