Willis Family Heart Fund

We have been working hard getting everything together for our trip, I feel like there are not enough hours in the day! Things are coming together and we are making progress, we even bought our plane tickets yesterday! Only a few more weeks until we relocate to Philadelphia =)

Since learning of Jensen's diagnosis, people all around us (and far away) have poured out their love and support. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful people in our lives that have taken time to send a card, buy Jensen gifts, say a prayer, or even just read this blog. One of my sisters (Sandi Hall) used her Scentsy business to do a fundraiser for the expenses we have encountered. She raised $300 for us, which we used to purchase our plane tickets! Everywhere we turn people are offering support in various ways and we can't say thank you enough to everyone. Our good friends Roger and Michele suggested opening a non-profit organization so businesses and individuals can donate to Jensen. With the help of Jeremy's mom and Ms. Vicky the tax goddess, we were able to set up a charity!

We are still working out the details, and I will post more as we get things finalized. So far, it is called the Willis Family Heart Fund and is a tax-deductible non-profit. We have a local bank account set up for donations and a tax ID number for your records. This fund will go toward the non-medical expenses of this journey, which could include: travel, lodging, meals, etc. If anyone is interested in donating or have questions, you can contact myself or Jeremy. Once we get the logo and mission statement finished, we will make a permanent link to this blog with all the info.
