Q: What is the mission of the Move For Jenn Foundation?
A: The mission of the Move For Jenn Foundation is to offer grants in the form of active-wear prosthetics to those who have suffered the loss of a limb to sarcoma or other affiliated diseases. Since most active-wear 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.
With your help, we can help fight sarcoma and give amputees an opportunity to keep MOVING! Every donation matters, even the smallest offering of support is greatly appreciated. Sign up for our newsletter below to stay updated on upcoming events, new products and volunteer opportunities!
