When Jenn was first diagnosed, she turned to social media for guidance and support. Because sarcoma is considered the "forgotten cancer" because of its rarity, it was hard to find and connect with others affected.
When Jenn started this foundation, she knew that she wanted to create a community where patients, survivors, healthcare workers, family, friends, and loved ones affected by sarcoma could connect. Jenn kicked off her first Instagram Live in August of 2020.
