"My name is Jenny. I am 32 and last year fought 2b Triple Negative breast cancer. I found it by chance and the next day was in a walk in clinic. Thankfully the doc didn't brush me aside and 3 weeks later I was in a chemo chair. 2 weeks ago I was told my cancer is back and I am now stage 4. It is back in my chest and on my diaphragm. I vlogged my whole journey and hope to continue to share:

"The hardest part is knowing this might take me away from my children. I have a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old. I don't want their memories of me to be me sick. I worry that my youngest won't remember me at all. I also worry about my husband. He will be 30 this year, too young to be a widower.

"What helps me through it is my family and friends. I am so thankful for my doctors who have never for one second blown me off due to my age. I think because I've been so open about what's going on, people want to help. I never have to worry about anything but the cancer. I mentioned very briefly that Disney was on my bucket list and in less than a week it was all planned out. I have been blown away by people's kindness."
