Jenny and her husband Joe have been married for 17 years, and together they have raised two wonderful boys – Dylan and Lucas. The three of them took wonderful care of me during my treatments! Jenny works for the City of Medina in the Finance department, and is very fortunate to work with so many incredibly supportive people. In her spare time Jenny enjoys reading, walking spending time with her family, and going camping.
On July 1, 2020 Jenny had her routine mammogram. She was called back in on Thursday, July 23, and because she was leaving on vacation Dr. Victoria VanFossen performed her biopsies that Friday. Her results showed that she had two masses in the left breast and pleomorphic invasive lobular carcinoma Grade 2 on the right. After Dr. VanFossen walked her through her options, Jenny underwent chemotherapy first, followed by a double mastectomy and complete hysterectomy, and finally radiation.
Dr. Derek Cody performed her Diep Flap reconstruction surgery. “The staff at Crystal Plastics were all so wonderful. They helped me to look and feel normal again,” Jenny shared. “I would recommend Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to anyone who is looking for any type of breast reconstruction. In fact, I already have – my cousin is having a breast reduction in December with Dr. Cody!”
Jenny wanted to be a part of the Pink Runway to “show other women with cancer to always keep your faith and try to look at the positives in your life every day. It’s a battle, but one worth fighting!”
