Help put Jennifer to rest – funeral fund

Update posted by Oat ajimasook On Jan 03, 2017

To all the people who supported and donated to this campaign we want to say a HUGE, HUGE 'THANK YOU!!!!'

We never imagined that we could achieve our goal so quickly! But with the support of Jennifer's friends, family, work and military colleagues, as well as the amazing community of people living with IC we were able to accomplish a beautiful goal! It's because of ALL your selfless and generous acts, no matter how big or small, that we are able to put Jennifer to rest now.

I want to let you know that we are committed to honoring Jennifer's memory. After we take care of everything needed to put her to rest, and settle her final affairs, we want to continue her legacy of charity and giving to others. We will be donating anything leftover to the Beaumont Foundation Urology Department for Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Research, in Jennifer's name. We have been in communication with the IC community and they have relayed that this is best place to make the biggest impact. More information below.

I want to end this by saying that this has been a very difficult way for us to end the year. However, thanks to all of you, we are entering 2017 with a renewed spirit and light that we didn't think was possible. We are so blessed to have each and every one of you in this world. Please know that, even if we've never met, you are loved and appreciated and most importantly supported!


All our best,

Oat and Regina


About Beaumont Hospital:

Beaumont Hospital, located in Royal Oak MI, is the leader in IC/BPS research in the USA. Led by Ken Peters MD, their urology research efforts have uncovered dramatic new findings that are helping clinicians better treat IC. In Spring 2008, prolific IC researcher Michael Chancellor MD (botox, liposomes, neuromodulation) joined the team as their Director of Neurourology making this a truly dynamic research environment that will be exploring cutting edge technologies and therapies. Their Women’s Initiative for Pelvic Pain and Sexual Health (WISH) program is outstanding. What makes Beaumont a great donation choice is their focus on the patient, their desire to improve patient care and their willingness to study elements of IC that few other research centers have explored.

I had the privilege of getting to know Jennifer last year. We had gone out a few times, constantly challenged each other at bowling, hung out at the planetarium and shared our enjoyment of good food and good conversation. I loved every moment of it and wish we could have had many more moments like that. I was extremely sad when I heard the news over Christmas weekend. I don't let a lot of people into my little world, but she was easy to open up to. A genuinely real person and a beautiful mind. Sorry my donation is so late, please put it to good use in her remembrance. I wish I could have done more.

In honor of her spirit not only as an IC patient but also as a US military veteran. She no longer suffers. She flies with the angels. She will be remembered with honor, love and kindness.

Jennifer was the ideal therapist - compassionate, accessible, insightful, kind, & friction-free. She has been a cornerstone in our lives for the last 7 mos - her efforts will always be appreciated; she will always remembered and we will miss her! This is an enormous loss to so many people.
