The December 5th Fund
Jennifer Schaefer
Board Member

Before becoming a full-time mom, I earned my degree at Washington University in Occupational Therapy. My husband would also say I am a full-time volunteer. I have a hard time saying no. But, the truth is I enjoy helping people. That is just who I am.

This organization means the world to me; Laura was like a sister and I want to see her legacy continue through the mission and purpose of The December 5th Fund. Laura always amazed me in how she dealt with life and all that she was going through. She taught me to enjoy those little things in life because they are what mean the most. And, that is the mission of this organization for families to forget about cancer, just for one day while focusing on what matters most – family.

When I’m not volunteering, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
