Jeannine’s Pancreatic Cancer Journey
Jeannine Quinn has had a successful career in corporate Human Resources
for more than 35 years. She is a certified Life Coach, Health Coach and Personal Trainer. One of Jeannine’s bigger passions is dance. She has competed in ballroom dance in the U.S, Canada, the Caribbean and South America.
She has been volunteering her time to coach with “Up With Women”, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless and at-risk women build sustainable careers.
Guided by her positive energy, endless determination, and zest for life, she succeeded in uncovering her true potential to live a full life regardless of any challenges. It is with this spirit that Jeannine underwent a life saving Whipple Surgery in July 2020.
As a pancreatic cancer survivor, she endeavored to support other pancreatic cancer patients, and became a peer volunteer with Wellspring in 2021.
Unfortunately, in July of this year, the pancreatic cancer metastasized to her brain, and Jeannine had to have a craniotomy. Following the surgery, she was paralyzed for 3 weeks. She is currently undergoing therapy as her mobility is still limited.
Nevertheless, Jeannine continues her quest to raise awareness about the unknown risks of pancreatic cancer. She continues to inspire as she exhibits the true meaning of resilience and hope.
At this point in her cancer journey, future treatment is still unknown and the care that goes with it.
Medical expenses for physical therapy and in-home care for all activities related to daily living add up very quickly. Of course private insurance can only cover a small portion.
Any financial support that you are able to
provide to help cover the costs of these medical & in-home care expenses would be greatly appreciated.
