It seems like yesterday when we were sitting next to each other getting treatment. I doubt you remember since you were only four, but its something I’ll never forget. After the nurse hooked me up she turned to you and said, “Look Jenna, Phil can do it!” Next your life size doll got her needle and the nurse again turned to you and said, “Look Jenna, Mandy can do it!” By this time you had the courage to get your chemo started.
Jenna, so much of your childhood was taken away from you but one thing that will never be taken away is your childlike faith. When you were fourteen I recall you sitting in my office with your mom explaining to me why you wanted to work at Phil’s Friends for your first job. When I asked why you responded, “I’m the first care package recipient ever in the history of Phil’s Friends, I want to help people and I too have a story to tell.” Jenna, we are so glad you are a survivor! Its hard to believe you are nineteen already and we could not be more thrilled that you are now ready to work your first job at Phil’s Friends!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
