Jenna's Fight for Life

At 30 years old, I've been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. I was misdiagnosed for 7 months before my life turned upside down with this diagnosis. I'm a mother to two boys ages 1 & 3. Keeping up with them is impossible at this point as I'm going through treatment, which entails 4 months of aggressive dose dense chemotherapy, followed by a double mastectomy & lymph node removal because it spread. I will also be doing 6 weeks of radiation everyday, in addition to hormone therapy for at least 10 years. I'm fortunate enough that my mother is able to come stay & care for me and my family while I'm unable to do so. I've set this up with the suggestion from so many who've asked to help in any way possible. But more than anything prayers, positive thoughts, & support are needed & appreciated.
