Brittany Wunderle DeJarnatt was diagnosed with breast cancer on October 1st, 2014- almost 5 years to the date that her extraordinary mother lost her battle with the same horrible disease.  

The day she received the diagnosis was the day she decided she was going to beat it.  And after rounds of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, persistence and courage, she did.

Then, in March of 2016, Brittany was diagnosed with uterine cancer.  This required aggressive chemotherapy treatment and full hysterectomy.  Once again, Brittany met the battle head on with grace, courage and resilience.  She was finally able to leave the cancer in the past when she was given the all clear later that year.  

But, in December 2016, Brittany was delivered the crushing news that the sarcoma had aggresively returned.  Brittany responded by marrying her fiance.

Brittany met Ben over 4 years ago while she was living in Los Angeles and he was living in San Diego.  Ben moved to Santa Cruz to attend UC Santa Cruz and Brittany joined him soon after.  Brittany told her sister, Katie, the night after meeting Ben, "I'm going to marry this man."  And, on December 6th, 2016, she did.  

Brittany and Ben got married at Stanford Medical Center with the generous help from the staff.  A small group of family and friends were able to attend.  Soon after the ceremony, Brittany started chemotherapy treatment again with her endlessly supportive husband by her side.  

After being told she had a baseball sized mass that required chemotherapy to shrink, Brittany returned to Ohio, her original home, on December 17th, 2016.  She will continue to receive treatment at The Cleveland Clinic.  She is currently staying with family in Kent, Ohio where she is able to be surrounded by family and friends.  

Brittany is a bonafide fighter.  Her positivity and resilience are truly inspiring.  

Brittany is certain to encounter many unexpected financial burdens throughout her battle.  Many treatments and medical needs will not be fully covered by insurance.   Brittany is unable to work and Ben had to hit pause on graduate school which leaves little income during a time they need it most.

If you know Brittany, then she has undoubtedly made you smile.  

Now it's our turn to make Brittany smile.  Please show your support in what will certainly be a knock out battle against cancer.

Brittany needs us all again. So, let's step up.

She's battling again. She's fighting again.

Please show her she has support. Please show her how much she is loved.

As some of you may know, Brittany has encountered another obstacle in her inspirational battle with cancer. Last week, Brittany found out that she now has uterine cancer that has spread to the lining of her abdomen. She has surgery scheduled tomorrow morning to remove the new cancer.

As always, Brittany has been a shining example of what it means to be positive, resilient and gracious. She has already proven to us all that she's a fighter and, no doubt, she's ready to prove it again.


But, with a another round of battle comes another round of medical expenses. Brittany is once again faced with meeting her hefty deductible as she embarks upon a new battle. Brittany is looking at another $6,000 that she will have to pay for out of pocket.

Let's continue our support for Brittany! On the eve of her surgery, let's show her we're behind her, give her courage, show her love and keep the good juju coming her way!

This Friday, 5/22 will be my LAST chemo treatment! I am so excited that my cousin Angela Kandes will be in town to celebrate and put this major milestone behind me. There will be lots of photos so stay tuned! I could not have gotten to this point in my treatment with out the support of all you. I am forever in debt - and my heart has swollen larger than life itself from all of the love. This is not the end of the road - as much as I wish it could be. I meet with the radiation oncologist tomorrow to find out my radiation plan. I will still have IV treatments of Hercepton every 3 weeks until the end of the year - (BUT HEY, IT IS NOT CHEMO) and then I will start 2016 with reconstruction surgery. But my first VERY BIG milestone - is being finished THIS FRIDAY. One thing is for sure - going through treatment for cancer is really like a long ass marathon - with no ending. Just milestones. Very important milestones. Please continue to keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. Sending mad love to all of you

Hi Brittany, I just came across your story. I'm a cancer patient as well. 5 years ago after my first diagnosis I froze my eggs in hopes to have kids one day. I couldn't afford it but there is an organization through Livestrong that helps cancer patients financially with fertility type things. I don't remember what the requirements are anymore but it's something to look into if you haven't yet :) Blessings to you.
