Jenae Heller became involved with Sara’s Cure after her husband Scott was diagnosed with Clear Cell Sarcoma at the age of 27. Newly engaged, it was the scariest time in their lives. There was little to no information on this type of cancer and no cure. Connecting with Sara’s Cure was a turning point for Jenae and Scott. They taught them the importance of being your own advocate and how to have an impact on the course of Scott’s treatment and future.
Jenae graduated from the University of Michigan in 2012 with a BA in Economics. After graduating, she started her career at Imagineer Technology Group, a financial software company, and is currently the Director of Client Services.
In Jenae’s spare time she enjoys cooking, running, pilates, and spending time with family and friends. Never being a runner before, she started running after Scott’s diagnosis, as an outlet for her stress. Since then, she has run her first official half marathon and runs her own personal half marathons in both New York City and her favorite place, Fire Island.
Her husband Scott is her hero. His bravery and determination inspire her every day to continue to fight for the cure.
