As a two-time brain tumor survivor, Jenn Ortiz knows the importance of patients receiving access advanced treatments and top doctors in the medical community so they can get the best care possible. It was a day like any other day, until suddenly Jenn felt like she was choking on her tongue. She only had enough time to grab her husband’s arm before she collapsed into a seizure.
Soon after that, Jenn was diagnosed with an aggressive type of brain cancer known as Glioblastoma (GBM). “When [Jenn] was first diagnosed with Glioblastoma and learned she may have only 12-15 months to live, she allowed one tear to roll down her cheek, then said, ‘No, not me,’” shared Jennifer Keeler, Ivy Center Communications Specialist.
“I’m going to save me, and everyone after me,” says Jenn Ortiz, who provides hope to other brain cancer patients as a Patient Advocate with the End Brain Cancer Initiative. "You can help us achieve this goal by donating to the End Brain Cancer Initiative for Giving Tuesday."
It costs approximately $225 to help one patient gain access to life-saving treatments and resources. Your generous gift to the End Brain Cancer Initiative will ensure that patients do not have to face cancer alone.
