Jennifer had a liver transplant in September 2021.  In addition to medical bills there are many expenses associated with the transplant, such as the cost of gas and housing while temporarily living in Rochester, MN, as well as lost wages during this time.  If you wish to assist Jennifer with an online gift, kindly contribute here by clicking on the DONATE link above.  Proceeds from online gifts made through this Lend A Hand Up fundraiser and cash/check gifts deposited into their benefit fund will be boosted 20% up to $5,000 to increase the impact of generosity. Cash and checks payable to ‘Jennifer Hyden Benefit Fund’ should be forwarded to Bell Bank.

  • Coming Soon: Together Strong Jenn Hyden Benefit T-Shirt & Mask

    Show your support for Jenn in this unique T-shirt and mask designed by Fargo artist Lourdes Hawley. The words “Together Strong” and “everything will be alright” and the music notes included in the design are from a song in the last show Jenn stage managed – Weather the Storm, a locally written musical inspired by the 1957 Fargo tornado. The green color of the shirt is the color for liver transplant, cancer and disease awareness.

    I had seen this on my phone and just got to reading your story, Jenn, tonight. I have no doubt that your courage in sharing it will be of help to perhaps even someone you will never know personally. I am honored to know you and I pray that God will continue to watch over you! I was in awe of your strength back during our Tin Roof production of Arsenic when your father died–not at all sure I could’ve continued on if I’d been in your shoes. Now that I have read your story and know the other parts that I wasn’t aware of, I admire your strength and courage so much more. You are an awesome, awesome person and I am both honored and excited to have you on our Tin Roof Theatre team once again! God bless you as you carry on! Much love and encouragement–Karla.
