Jennifer Griffin’s Victory Over Breast Cancer!
Being diagnosed with cancer itself is scary stuff let alone being diagnosed with the third stage of breast cancer.
Jennifer was well aware that cancer runs through her gene as her mother and grandmother were both diagnosed with breast cancer.
To keep her health at the check, she regularly had mammograms. However, she couldn’t get screened while she was nursing her youngest son, Luke.
And when she discovered the lump in her breast, it already reached the alarming stage 3. After the diagnosis, she found that she had a rare Stage III Triple-Negative Breast Cancer.
She began an uphill journey from the next day of diagnosis and hired an oncologist. She then took chemotherapy and changed her diet to make her ready for the painful months of chemo.
Regular exercise and organic diet with months of Chemotherapy she finally recovered from cancer. Talking about the painful experience, she said:
Today, I wear my scars with pride. My hair was long and blonde when I started and now it’s short and spiky silver—and I walk with my head held high and feel more beautiful than ever.
Yes, she not only came out victorious but also inspired a lot of people to fight for their lives.
She is fortunate to have a loving husband by her side when she was through this whole experience. The couple is together for more than two decades now and has a beautiful relationship while the issue of divorce never crossed their paths.
