This Website was originally created for Jen Collins and for her friends. As many of you know, Jen was diagnosed with Lung Cancer on April 23, 2004.
After 2 1/2 years of fighting like hell, the cancer took her on September 11th, 2006. Through The Jennifer L Collins Memorial Foundation her spirit will live forever. She kept a diary of her fight on her update page and you are encouraged to read her story. You will never meet a more courageous person!

The Jennifer L Collins Memorial Foundation was formed with the mission to provide
financial, spiritual and educational support to cancer patients in the Pacific Northwest and
do so in Jen Collins¡¯s name. Jen fought her battle like a true champion and the support she received through her friends helped her to focus on her battle rather then some of the financial burdens & challenges that so many cancer patients don¡¯t foresee, but are often hit with during their fight.

Just some of the things we help in providing, but not limited to, through the foundation are:

  • Travel expenses to & from doctors appointments

  • Child Care during treatments

  • Prescription & Insurance Co-pays

  • Groceries

  • Educational materials

  • Holiday gifts for cancer kids & their families

   We currently support The Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (which includes Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the
   University of Washington Medical Center and Children¡¯s Hospital) and The Swedish Cancer Institute
through their Patient
   Assistance Programs.
Hopefully, with your help we will add many more organizations in years to come!

   The Jennifer L Collins Memorial Foundation is funded through donations from you and people just like you and various fund
   raising events, auctions. It is you that makes what we do a success! Being a Non-Profit corporation all your donations are
   100% tax deductible.
The Jennifer L Collins Memorial Foundation is a federally recognized 501c3 Non-Profit Corporation
