In June 2015, Jacquelyn Penrose found out she had breast cancer at the age of 26. She was a young, hard-working mom of a 2-year-old and spent over a year completing all recommended treatments including chemotherapy, radiation, and a mastectomy. Despite routine mammograms and completing the standard treatment for breast cancer, we learned in January 2019 that cancer has returned to her body.
Jacquelyn, now 29 years old, was given the devastating news that cancer has spread throughout her body. Recent PET scans show lesions in her breast, liver, bones, and brain making it a metastatic Stage 4 diagnosis. This has resulted in several doctors appointments, scans and biopsies, an unexpected ambulance ride and ICU hospital stay, an outpatient surgery, and cancer treatments all in the last three weeks.
Although we don't want Jacquelyn to have to go through this again and are crushed by the news, we choose to believe in miracles and have faith in God's ability to heal.
Because of the recent events, Jacquelyn has had to take a leave of absence from work to focus on her health at this time. Her husband Seth is trying to be with her as much as possible while they raise their 5-year-old daughter together.
Jacquelyn is currently undergoing treatments of chemotherapy and radiation and every donation will help to relieve the financial burden of these treatments. Please donate to financially support Jacquelyn and her family at this difficult time as she battles cancer again!
