My Story

I've been undergoing chemo treatments for 14 months and am scheduled to conclude in mid-March but I am not out of the woods just yet. I'll have a PET scan on 3/27/19 to determine if there's any evidence of disease after 24 total chemo treatments. If so, the oncologist is recommending surgery to remove the tumor (located behind/within my right ear) and additional chemo. But I am a fighter! My faith is strong. Either way, I know God's got this! I would ask that you PLEASE WATCH AND SHARE THE RIPPLE EFFECT VIDEO BELOW. Thank you so much for your ongoing support of me and St Baldrick's. #JackStrong
