Gift & Payment Information
In June 2014, at the age of 26, Jennifer was diagnosed with an aggressive, stage 3 breast cancer. After a year of treatment by Dr. Pamela Goodwin, Director of the Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre, in early 2015 Jennifer was given the all clear. But in August 2016, Jennifer was having trouble breathing and a CT scan revealed that her cancer had returned, and had spread to her sternum, right rib cage, spine and right pelvis. Then, in early October, Jennifer began to experience unusual tremors in her left arm and leg. An MRI revealed the presence of 10 tumours in her brain, and Jennifer learned her cancer was terminal.
Despite this devastating news, Jennifer has been characteristically positive and eager to accomplish as much as possible. Chief among her goals is to share her story and the experience she has had as a patient at Mount Sinai Hospital. The funds raised support the Jennifer Landa Breast Cancer Visiting Lectureship, a lecture series that will bring international breast cancer leaders to Mount Sinai to ensure the Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre remains at the forefront of cancer treatment and research. With the support of the community, Jennifer has accomplished her first goal of raising $150,000 and the fundraising continues!
Help Jennifer continue to pursue her dreams by donating to her fundraising campaign today.
“I want to help save other people,” says Jennifer. “That would be so cool. I think that’s the most amazing thing I can do with the time I have left.”
