Community Support: A Wedding!

The Jedediah Thomas Smith Foundation needs your help! We have the amazing opportunity to assist with the wedding of a 19-year-old young woman battling relapsed AML at Hershey Medical Center. She and her fiance were engaged to be married next fall but after another relapse this week the wedding was been moved to this coming Saturday, 11/10/2012. The ceremony will take place in the Chapel at HMC with a reception at the hospital to follow as the bride is in-patient.

This young woman has already endured two bone marrow transplants and many years of harsh treatments. We as a foundation are small but we feel very blessed to help make her dreams come true and give her the opportunity to marry her fiance this weekend!

We are asking for your help to offset the costs of the ceremony as we are using funds that typically are used to pay for toys and activities for the HMC pediatric clinic. We understand that everyone is struggling but we thank you those of you who are able to contribute anything so deeply! 

Please help us in assisting to provide a beautiful day for this young woman and her soon-to-be husband! The memories made will sustain her throughout the rough days ahead and her family for years.

You can donate online above or mail checks to 233 N. Charles St., Red Lion, PA 17356. 

For questions, please email  

We are sending many, many thanks to the amazing people who have stepped up to be a part of this wedding in just the last 48 hours! We feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing community.
