Why the Move For Jenn Foundation is Unique
The mission of the Move For Jenn Foundation is to offer grants in the form of activewear prosthetics to those who have suffered the loss of a limb to sarcoma or other affiliated diseases. Since most activewear prosthetics are not covered by insurance, the foundation bridges the financial gap to allow amputees to get back to the physical activities they enjoyed prior to amputation.
The Move For Jenn Foundation also aims to find a cure for sarcoma and better treatment options for sarcoma patients. Targeted research, awareness, and advocacy are three core objectives that make the foundation unique.
"I just want to thank you again. Not just for giving me the grant, which has changed my life so much in just the few weeks that I've had the blade but even more so for the support. You know the toll that being an amputee can have on you physically and mentally. It's been a challenge finding my place again after my amputation. Sometimes I feel misunderstood or people try to cater to me just because I'm an amputee and pity me or more so that I don't fit into that 'normal body box' anymore. I haven't had the opportunity to find many people like me, or people that see me for who I am beyond an amputee, or people that accept me for who I am and treat me like a normal person. What you've given me is so much more than a grant. You've given me a place where I'm fully supported and truly seen as an able-body person. You've helped me in more ways than you will ever know."
