Hi, my name is Jenni and I live in Columbus, Ohio. I am the mother of a wonderful, nine year old daughter and happily married to my spouse of 18 years. I enjoy camping, hiking, playing board games, and watching Ohio State Buckeyes football.
I was diagnosed with EHE on December 29, 2018 after a scan of my liver due to having a pain in my side. I was 42 years old when I was told that I have such a rare cancer. The first oncologist I spoke with said she had never heard of EHE and they could not help me. That’s when it hit me how rare EHE really is.
The EHE Foundation gives me hope. Being diagnosed with a rare cancer that has no treatment and is often fatal, I felt so alone. It meant the world to me to be able to connect with other EHE warriors. The EHE Foundation has provided me information, connections and support during the most difficult time of my life. Please consider donating to The EHE Foundation as every dollar means the world to us.
In order to find treatment for EHE, we need basic research to be done. Many other cancers receive federal funding for basic research but with EHE, most donors are patients. If you are looking for a non-profit where your dollars will truly make a difference, you have found it with The EHE Foundation.
