Jinny's Breast Cancer Fund

0.06 %

I am part of that percentage of women in their 20s in the US to be diagnosed with breast cancer. You never really think about it, especially at this time in your life and you always hear that the chances of getting it is when your older.  I believe everything happen for a reason though if it be good or bad but we always learn from it.

Hi, my name is Jinny Johnson and I have Stage IV IDC Breast Cancer which has spread to my sternum. I am 27 year old working mom  with a beautiful daughter and amazing fiancé who definitely keep me feeling my best even when I'm at my lowest. I feel blessed to have them and have my amazing family and friends to be here and support me through such a time.  





This go fund me was set in hopes to relieve some financial strain that we are running in to. We are slowly finding out that my insurance is already starting to decline some procedures that have been requested by my doctors that they feel is necessary. I am also hoping that I will be able to work through chemo but a lot of people who know people or have been through it say It'll probably kick my butt and make it hard to work. I'm hoping my first session of chemo goes well and I'm not feeling to awful but if so I'll have to take the time off.  I hope that all the money we can raise will pay for all the doctor bills that I will soon be receiving in the mail and help with smaller things such as rent & utilities.

I want to thank everyone who has simply shared or donated to this. I couldn't tell you how much this means to me and my family and I appreciate all that y'all do.

Story Time:

I was recently diagnosed with Stage IIB Invasive Ductal Brest Cancer. It estrogen and progesterone positive but HER2 negative which is great news. So pretty much my wonderful hormones make the cancer grow. So treatment plan consists of 2 rounds of chemo first 4 sessions are A/C  which are Adriamycin & Cyclophosphamide. Second round of treatment is Taxol. I will be on chemo treatment once every 2 weeks. After chemo I will be receiving a bilateral (double) mastectomy with DIEP where they graft fat from my pudgy stomach and place it on my chest and do some reconstruction and possibility of radiation if the cancer in my lymph node does not go away.  After that theres a wopping possible 10 years of hormone blockers. So welcome back wonderful adult acne to my life but hey at least my boobs arnt trying to kill me anymore.

Update: It has spread to my sternum so curently I am diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer. I will be doing radiation after chemo in hopes to eliminate the cancer from this area.
