You'll be helping people like Jenni...
Hi everyone, I’m Jenni. My world was tipped upside down, when at 41, I was diagnosed with breast cancer…
I had 9 surgeries, 16 rounds of chemotherapy, 32 sessions of radiotherapy and now there’s ongoing hormone therapy.
Cancer is awful and it took a lot but it also gave me the ability to see the ‘silver linings’ and a voice, so these days I blog about cancer, personal styling and positive body image.
There’s lots I’d like to forget about cancer treatment but also plenty I want to share. When people raise their voice and communicate it helps, which is why I’m proud to be an Ambassador for The Longest Table this year. Thanks for joining me in the fight.
