Jessica Oldwyn, Friday Harbor High School Class of 1998, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor that will require brain surgery.

Although she has health insurance, the anticipated cost of the procedure is expected to exceed her benefits and therefore become her responsibility.

She and her family have deep ties in the community, and many people within the community are expressing interest in giving their support to the Oldwyn family. Because of this interest, friends of the family have opened a beneficiary account in Jessica's name at Islanders Bank. To contribute, visit a local Islanders Bank branch and ask about Jessica Oldwyn's beneficiary account.

"Jessica and her family appreciate the overwhelming amount of support they are receiving from the community during this challenging time," family and friends said in an announcement of the fund.
