    Ms.
    Hi there!,
     
    My name is Jenna Lindman. I am a resident of Wheaton and I am the President of IgniteHope, a nonprofit dedicated to sparking empowerment for survivors. The mission of IgniteHope is to uplift people undergoing cancer treatment and other survivors. With a design I created, we hand-craft candles with pods hidden in the wax that get discovered as the candle burns down. Inside each pod is a handwritten notes of inspiration and empowerment. We currently run our business from my Wheaton resident. We are working hard at growing our business and impacting the lives of those battling cancer.

    If you are interested in learning more about me or IgniteHope, please visit our website www.ignitehopecandles.org. There you can read about our company and find out how you can help or purchase one of our candles.

    Thank you, and best wishes.
