On April 13th, 2010 Jessica Oldwyn was diagnosed with a tennis ball sized brain tumor. The classification was an infiltrating/diffuse Astrocytoma (a type of glioma) tumor. Within several days she underwent a partially awake craniotomy, with a second emergency brain surgery to follow. Jess has undergone conventional as well as a whole host of alternative treatments in an ongoing and costly fight against brain cancer. Jess bravely shares her story on her blog that provides humor, inspiration, and most importantly, her ongoing message of hope to so many. She continues to inspire beyond words with her drive, dedication, determination, joyfulness, empathy and truly unbreakable spirit. She is simply amazing! If you don't know about this incredible woman you can reayd her story in her own words at: http://www.jessicaoldwyn.blogspot.com/ 

Starting January 2013 Jess will undergo a series of costly experimental treatments for which she will travel to Germany and then to New York several times a year for the next five years.

Our goal is to help raise the funds that are essential in allowing Jess to continue her courageous battle. Please help us to return the hope that Jess has provided for so many by donating to Hope for Jess. Below are the best ways to bring hope to Jess.


The last thing Jess needs right now is to worry about her finances. Please help relieve this burden through your generosity.
From all of us who love Jess we cannot thank you enough!
