Jenny Mulks is a CEO, cancer coach, TEDx speaker, international author, advocate, philanthropist, humanitarian, cancer survivor, and a mom.
She is the Founder and CEO of Along Comes Hope®, a nonprofit organization helping families of children with cancer. Their mission is to provide support through financial assistance with travel for treatment, creative emotional support programs for the entire family, advocacy work on Capitol Hill to promote policy changes, and awareness and education programs nationally and within local communities.
Jenny’s previous career and business background have focused on business development and execution within the pharmaceutical industry as a regional business manager. She held various roles, with a concentrated focus on leadership, implementation, motivating, training and supervising sales teams. Within those 15 years of corporate experience, Jenny also collaborated with executive leadership teams and peers working on cross-functional corporate initiatives while serving on advisory boards, commercial operations, brand team, marketing, operational analytics and sales training. Jenny was on the management team that hired, trained and grew the organization from 150 sales reps to 2,500 sales reps.
Jenny made the transition from the corporate world into the nonprofit arena through a personal experience and awareness surrounding her journey with cancer, starting in 2006. Enlightened through her miraculous survival, the need to help others, in the eye of the storm became clear. The concept and mission of Along Comes Hope® was conceptually birthed in 2013. This personal journey broadened her awareness to the number of families in need of financial assistance and the importance of supporting the families that are forced to make a treatment choice due to affordability of travel versus their best attempts at survival. Along Comes Hope® has impacted thousands of families in the vast arena of their four pillars of service. Their overall goal is to ensure that no family faces cancer alone nor has to choose affordability over survivability, when it comes to the wellbeing and life of their precious child.
As a cancer coach, Jenny has been mentoring cancer patients and caregivers since 2007, after she faced a rare and aggressive cancer, giving her only 6-12 months left to live. She has been thriving against many odds ever since and is living cancer free, since 2007.
To further serve the cancer community, Jenny created online courses for patients and caregivers called, “We Can-Serve Together: Thriving Through Cancer”. These courses provide guidance to cancer patients and caregivers, serving as a liaison between the practitioners and patients. This mentorship is helping them make emotional shifts in order to thrive during their cancer journey, align their mind and soul with their body, ensuring their journey is focused on thriving through this challenge and beyond.
She is an inspiring speaker for diverse audiences bringing you from laughter to tears, on the subjects of hope and resilience, in the face of adversity. She’s inspired thousands to face their obstacles with new insight, perspective and hope.
