What We Do

The Go Jen Go Foundation is dedicated to providing critical financial assistance to local individuals and families who are battling breast cancer. We want no survivor to be distracted by financial burdens while fighting breast cancer.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

How Go Jen Go is Impacted:
We have found the volume and severity of financial assistance requests have increased as a result of COVID-19.

All of the patients we serve are at a greater risk of contracting COVID-19 due to their diagnosis and treatments and must be extra vigilant during this pandemic. Our most recent applicants that are able to work are in the service industry and are now faced with the prospect of layoffs and the loss of insurance benefits. Many of these individuals were already living paycheck to paycheck and it does not take long for them to fall behind on their monthly bills. Further, many individuals that we support are single mothers who are now faced with children that are home from school and are having to navigate CMS school lunch programs.

How You Can Help:
During these uncertain times, please consider helping us provide funding to the individuals that are suddenly out of work and unsure of when they will be able to return to their jobs. These funds will be used for rent, utilities, groceries and other critical needs.
