About Charlee’s Story 

The Jensen/Jacques family recently received some devestating news that their sweet 22-month-old baby girl Charlee Shay has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer. As you can imagine, this was heartbreaking for them and has turned their world upside-down. However, being the amazing parents that Erica and Kyle are, they have made this situation their new normal and have shown incredible strength in their ability to move away from the shock and tears and toward a cure and bright future for sweet Charlee. Charlee is showing bravery and perseverence in response to the treatments and is impressing her family and doctors every day! All of us forsee a bright and beautiful future for this girl! However, all of the procedures that need to be taken to bring this sweet girl back to health are going to be very costly. Any help is appreciated!
