On October 16th Janine had surgery to remove a large lump in her neck. The pathology report came back positive for cancer.
On October 27th Janine was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (stage 3), a very rare cancer of the salivary glands. After Janine’s diagnosis, she endured a 16 hour surgery which involved removal of the parotid gland, lymph nodes, skin tissue, facial nerves and reconstructive surgery. After an extensive recovery of 6 weeks, Janine began chemo and radiation therapy. Due to treatment Janine has had a setback and has been unable to eat. Janine has been in the hospital for a week on a feeding tube. Janine’s husband Kenny has been by her side and has taken her to every appointment and treatment to this day. Janine’s children Blake (age 11) and Kendal (age 7) have been her inspiration to stay strong and to fight for her life. Janine is a beautiful person inside and out. She sees the good in everything and everyone. Janine’s love for life and her family has always helped her to keep a positive attitude through this difficult time. Please help us to raise money to assist Janine’s family with medical costs and loss of wages.
keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Thank You!
