Jennifer Tidd remembers a day in 2012 when she brought home ice cream for her mom. She was in fifth grade and her mother, Julie, was receiving hospice care at home. About a month later, Julie would pass away, her body ravaged by what started as breast cancer.

But on that spring day, Jennifer watched her mother smile as she fed her ice cream. It was such a small gesture, and she was just a child. That moment would stick with her and define the person she wants to become.

“I could help her, even if I didn’t know what I was doing,” Jennifer said. “I just want to live a life of helping people.”
