KATHLEEN F MARKS MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
October 1, 2013

Hi,

My name is Jen and am on the receiving end of the efforts Crystal and Isis pursue. In May of this year, 2013, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. That's enough to deal with but, on top of it, I'm self employed and have zero insurance!!! I knew that surgery was in my future and knew that there would be big time costs up ahead.

My family and friend banded to raise funds as quickly as we can; we made noise with online videos through facebook and youtube, fundraisers and events. Words spread quick and the lovely ladies who run the Kathleen Marks Memorial Foundation heard the story and reached out TO ME! I didn't do a thing!! Through facebook Crystal got in touch with me and made herself and her foundation known. They are now taking care of a significant portion of my surgery bill!! This is wonderful and all I had to do was send them the bill!! This is a true act of generosity and a way that the community contributes directly to a member of the community who is in need.

They're raising funds through fun and wonderful events! A pig roast luau and Halloween Party!!?? How cool right? I feel really connected to the community around me and am assured that I am cared for. Awesome. I look forward to being a part of this group and doing what I can to help other families in their challenges. I could describe the help I received from this organization as life changing since it gave me a broader and wider perspective of my community, a deeper appreciation for the people around me and an awareness of what families are dealing with, and the understanding that help is never far away. It's changed my general thinking, which is life changing. I didn't have to submit any forms or interview for or audition/apply for help,,, it was just there.
