Silent Auction Supports a Local Woman

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Residents held a silent auction Sunday in support of a local woman suffering from a life-altering illness.

Jennifer LeCompte suffers from Trigeminal Neuralgia, a illness that severe pain on one side of her face. The illness and a series of brain surgeries make her unable to work, so friends organized a fundraiser to help pay her bills.

People at the silent auction received a number, which they used to bid on various items including gift certificates, gift boxes and board games.

Friends who organized the auction said they were shocked by the community support and hope the money raised can help LeCompte stay afloat.

“Jenny is an amazing woman…How courageous she is to have to go through all of this and still keep fighting. It’s amazing,” said event organizer Katie Dunne.

Another fundraiser is planned for Feb. 12.

    Her last name is LeCompte. I know it is a confusing last name but just in case someone reads the article and wants to help this amazing woman. Jenny has a Master’s Degree. She has never looked for a handout and has managed to work even though she has suffered with this disease. Now it has reached the point where speech and pain make it impossible to utilize the skills she has honed working for Lane County.
