The first time I was diagnosed with breast cancer, my oldest daughter was getting ready to start her freshman year of high school.
[Video: A close up of Jenny’s face as she speaks]
She was just entering these years where you're supposed to forget about your parents.
[Video: Wide shot of Jenny sitting in living room, wiping away a tear as she cries]
So aside from just being so sick in that important year of her life, the very real possibility that I wasn't going to survive it just made everything more scary.

In 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had surgery,
[Video: dissolve to a photo of Jenny standing next to medical equipment][Audio: Jenny speaks off screen]
then went through six months of chemotherapy
[Video: dissolve to photo of a balding Jenny in bed with a medical port on her chest]
and then a full course of radiation.
[Video: dissolve to photo of Jenny standing, ringing a bell and holding a champagne bottle]
I rang the bell that spring and a year later,
[Video: close up of Jenny’s face as she speaks][Audio: Jenny speaks]
I was diagnosed with a recurrence.

The cancer this time was a much more aggressive form. It came back as inflammatory breast cancer that was triple negative.
[Audio: music increases in volume][Video: fades to black, a white backdrop with text fades in, Triple negative, inflammatory breast cancer is rare.][Video: text fades out and new text fades in, The prognosis is poor.][Audio: music lowers in volume and Jenny speaks off screen]
I just finished
[Video: fades to Jenny sitting in a living room speaking][Audio: Jenny speaks]
chemotherapy in February of this year, just a few months ago. I have triple negative breast cancer.
There's no targeted therapy to keep that away.
So we fully expect for cancer to return somewhere in my body, within the next year and a half.

Research that's focused
[Video: Close up of hands pointing out photos in photobook]
on triple negative breast cancer
[Video: Close up of Jenny and husband and daughter looking through photobook together]
is my ticket to a future with my kids.
[Video: Jenny, laughing, sits at a table with two daughters and husband a board game]
No relationship exists
[Video: Jenny laughs as her daughter makes finger guns toward her other daughter, husband sits next to Jenny]
like the one between the a mom and her daughters.
[Video: Close up of Jenny sitting at a table outside on a deck with her husband and daughter]
the thought of my kids growing up
[Video: Jenny smiles as she looks toward her daughter sitting across from her, we see the back of her head]
without that kinda support, that type of
[Video: Jenny sits in a living room talking][Audio: Jenny speaks]
advocate, that person that's fiercely on their side
[Video: Wide panning exterior view of Simon Cancer Center][Audio: Jenny speaks off screen]
is heartbreaking. Knowing that

the National Cancer Institute has designated the IU Simon Cancer Center
[Video: Close up of hands placing a container into a storage unit]
here, in Indiana,
[Video: close up of a female researcher looking into a microscope]
[Video: over the shoulder shot of female researcher viewing a video screen of microscopic material]
giving it this incredible honor
[Video: a female researcher lifts a rectangular container out of a cooling storage unit]
and seal of approval
[Video: gloved hands open a steaming, small box from a longer rectangular storage container]
gives me so much comfort that I'm in the right place.
[Video: Jenny sits speaking in a living room][Audio: Jenny speaks]
Right now, I don't have evidence of disease. I feel really good.
[Video: Jenny walks on a neighborhood street with her two daughters, husband, and a dog][Audio: Jenny speaks off screen]
I am participating with my kids, registering for their new school year, but I don't know how long
[Video: close up of Jenny speaking in a living room][Audio: Jenny speaks]
that will remain to be the case.
And if and when my cancer returns, I know that I am in the best hands possible, that if I'm gonna survive this disease,
[Video: Jenny sits in a living room speaking]
that my care team here, in Indiana, will be the ones to make it happen.
