Welcome to Jilleen’s CaringBridge site. We are using it to keep family and friends updated all in one place. Your support and words of hope and encouragement are greatly appreciated. Thank you for visiting.

On Tuesday, December 28, 2020, Jilleen was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer, with HER2 results coming back positive. She has been given an aggressive treatment plan that requires a minimum of 12 weeks of chemotherapy to start, prior to her undergoing a double mastectomy. Due to Jilleen’s treatment plan, her immune system will be weakened. So please be mindful of that if and when you plan to visit.

Jilleen is one fierce woman with an admirable level of unwavering loyalty towards the ones she loves. She is a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend and juggles her daily (busy) life with grace and a smile. She’s not one that asks for help lightly, if ever, but one day soon her and her amazing family is going to need it. Jilleen, her husband Chris and their two boys, Braylon & Blake, are always on the move. #hockeyfamily

They already have medical bills coming in and they won’t be stopping anytime soon. So attached to this site, you’ll find links to not only a Meal Train, but also a GoFundMe and possibly more as time comes and this all progresses. Click on the “Ways to Help” button above. We’ll try to update this as often as possible.

This unexpected journey is one that we are all taking on together. Thank you so much for all of the love and support that’s already been shown and we couldn't ask for a better support system for their family!
