Help Denise Battle Breast Cancer

Meet Denise, a kind-hearted, fun-loving Christian woman, who desperately needs our help. After 30 plus years of routine self-exams and annual screenings, Ms. Denise Jenkins received upsetting news that she had a rare form of inflammatory breast cancer. 

As child of God, with a special gift for photography, Denise typically finds herself behind the lens focusing in on the special moments of other people’s lives. However, with the sudden onset of this illness, health complications have caused the focus to shift onto Denise. 

Since this past February, Denise has been faced with the struggle of a lifetime. Beyond the physical challenges of undergoing biweekly chemotherapy treatments, Denise has been forced to deal with major changes to her life such as, sacrificing her apartment to cut expenses, limited mobility due to lack of strength, lack of appetite, weight loss, numerous surgical procedures, complete upheaval of her regular weekly routines, and now requires driving assistance due to her weakened state after receiving treatments. 

Being a former foster parent and care provider, just the adjustment of being cared for by others has been mentally taxing since she has spent a good portion of her life tending to the needs of others, young and old.

Mounting medical bills only adds additional stress as she is operating on an extremely limited budget. Yet and still, Denise continues to find new ways to stretch out her resources.

Denise understands and reveres the work that goes into caring for others. Daily she thanks God for the work he is doing through her “guardian angels” who look have been shepherding over her since her diagnoses was revealed. Her church family and friends have been extremely supportive and through it all she has maintained a positive outlook with prayer and trust in God’s divine will.

Let’s all join her team and help her win the fight against breast cancer. Please lift her up in prayer and bring as much awareness as you can to her Go Fund Me campaign. With your contributions we can lessen her medical-bill induced financial burden and allow her to focus solely on healing. 
Thank you in advance for your support.
Sincerely grateful,
Denise's Family & Friends (aka TEAM DENISE)

UPDATE: On Jan. 31, 2018, I had a trip & fall on the sidewalk of the apartments where I live. Had just checked my mail and wanted to go the long way back to my bldg. to get a few steps in. Didn't notice the uneven sidewalk (where a tree had caused the slight lift in a section of sidewalk), tripped and fell all the way, tearing 1 of my gloves and a denim jacket, scraping my knee and scraping my face on sidewalk. Thankfully nothing was broken (no bones nor my eyeglasses) Thank God!! I did get a wrist brace from Urgent Care at Cancer Treatment Center the following week. Obediently wore the wrist brace at least 7 days, to immobilize swollen hand. Had CT scan and brain MRI scheduled/complete before seeing urgent care (2-8-2018) Late post 3-3-2018DJJ

They may be getting me ready for a long "break" as the next appointment is in February2018 then (likely update) to add stuff between the next date Dec. 2018. (Jan. 28, 2018) Thank you all ever so MUCH!! GOD'S Blessings Continue, with LOVE from Denise J. Jenkins XOXO

A couple weeks ago, I sent solicitation via the Facebook page. However, I'm just getting back to the GoFundMe Page. I appreciate all my supporters so very much. The battle continues as a recent MRI of my head showed more spots which need radiation treatment. The treatment will start next week or next month (which ever comes first--HeHee)! Thank you all sincere supporters, every $$ I receive helps in some way!! LOVINGLY, Denise J.Jenkins Oct.30, 2017 (8:05pm EST)

I read that you were having nausea. Zofran works great for that. I have gotten chemo also, and Zofran is essential for me.
