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 Collins Foundation  mission is to help create awareness about and raise funds for
cancer patient assistance programs. Even though we have limited funding sources we try to do what we
can in the form of 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

  • Holiday food / meals for cancer kids & their families


    If you are a patient looking for assistance through our foundation, Please have your social worker contact us by
    email - PatientAssistance@jensfriends.com  or contact Mark Collins directly at >  mark@jensfriends.com

    Keep in mind and understand that can not deal / work directly with and / or distribute funds directly to cancer
    patients as we do not have staffing to screen grant applications., therefore the need social worker assistance.
    Additionally, we can only distribute funds to a vender and not to patients directly

The Jennifer L Collins Memorial Foundation is funded through donations from you and people just like you
as well as various fund raising events, auctions. It is you that makes what we do a success!
