Jamie's TNBC - War On Breast Cancer
She delivered Juliette Rose on May 29th, 2017, perfectly healthy. While Jules was in utero she endured 2 rounds of chemotherapy. Jamie will have about 4 more months of Chemo starting June 12th. Then she will have a bilateral mastectomy, lymph node dissection, hysterectomy and finally radiation. This will be a marathon and not a sprint but we are all confident she will beat this for her and her loving family of four, her extended family and her friends.
We are raising funds for a caretaker she will need while going through chemo and the multiple surgeries she will need. Also because triple negative breast cancer has no targeted treatment, she is seeking other options to help fight the cancer. Currently she has been receiving supplements from an amazing holistic doctor and vitamin infusions. On top of this, she is on a strict diet that is also very expensive.
Also her insurance will pay some but not all and hopefully we can reach our goal or hopefully go past and help with some of the medical bills also.
Jamie is an amazing human who deserves nothing but the very best. She is a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, and
friend. Anyone who knows her loves her which is why she deserves any and all help.
Please consider donating and if that is not possible please share this campaign.
Thank you you all and please keep the prayers going , they are working! ❤️❤️
Once again thank you to everyone who has donated and helped out Jamie and her family in anyway.
Jamie has been doing really well. She is in her third week of radiation and has about 3 1/2 weeks to go. She is handling it very well so far. Once radiation is finished, she will move on to either a clinical trial called Olympia or a different chemo pill called Xeloda. Currently she has expanders in and they will stay that way until about 3-6 months after radiation. After that she will be able to have her implants! Yay!!
Here are a few recent pictures of the family. Please keep Jamie in your prayers and keep sharing this page!
Jamie has been dealing with all of this like a champ. She is a wonderful mom who dedicates as much time possible with her 2 little ones. Jules is a smiling happy baby now. 4 months old!
We will have another benefit for the Gruntmans on October 14th at the Waiting Room bar in St.Ann. Please come out if you can and support this wonderful family. The link is below.
Once again, thank you so much to all who have donated, it really means to world to Jamie and Jeff. Please continue to share and let’s see if we can meet our goal!!
Hi Jamie, I too have the BRCA1 gene and had triple negative breast cancer. I just found that out 2 years ago. I had invasive ductal cell carcinoma when I was 33 and my daughter was 7. My daughter did not carry the gene. I have a birthday this week and will be 69. This was in 1981. You too will get thru this and see your children grow up just a I have. Never Give Up!!!! Prayers for you and your family.
Hi. This must be a very difficult time for you. There is great comfort in the scriptures. When you and your family are feeling depressed, please refer to these scriptures: Psalm 41:3 "“Jehovah will sustain him on his sickbed; during his sickness you will completely change his bed.” He knows what his servants need and will not forget them. There will be a time as stated in Isaiah 33:24 "And no resident will say I am sick". Is seems impossible, but it is not. Adam and Eve were created here on earth to live forever. If they did not disobey, all mankind would have too lived forever here on earth. Just because of their disobedience does not mean God has given up on his purpose. He will bring that purpose back through his Kingdom. We just have to be patient and read our bible. Imagine living in a world with no suffering. Matthew 6:9,10 "Let your kingdom come...".
