Help Us Fight to End Cancer!
This strong beautiful woman and friend is Jenelle Spade Nace. Also, her husband Jeremiah, and two adorable daughters Charlotte and Caroline. In July of 2016, during Jenelle's pregnancy with Caroline, her physician's found what appeared to be cysts growing on Jenelle's ovaries. Shortly after Caroline's delivery, Jenelle not feeling well, returned to the hospital and several days later underwent surgery to remove the cysts. What was discovered has changed the course of the Naces lives forever. The cysts were actually ovarian cancer tumors. The cancer had spread and doctors removed all that they could, roughly 10 lbs of tumors. Jenelle started chemotherapy within weeks of giving birth to Caroline.
Today Jenelle is still receiving chemotherapy, currently round 17. She continues to be the most positive person I have ever met. Her grace and strength are amazing! In Jenelle's words, "Yeah, maybe there was a little something called cancer that I could have done without...but the truth is...What happened because of the cancer was pretty phenominal and I wouldn't change that for anything."
Fighting cancer is a team sport. The good news is there are many ways you can be part of the team and help renew the strength of patients and their families. By forming Team Jenelle, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Jenelle and her family in the fight against cancer and with many others fighting cancer. Cancer can be a radiant disease, it attacks not only the one afflicted, but also their family and friends. So each year we fundraise and 'Ride" to help the American Cancer Society enable investments in groundbreaking cancer research and free information and services for people facing cancer. For more than a century, the American Cancer Society has led the way in the fight to end cancer – and we are excited to be part of their team.
Our mission is clear – keep fighting for the day when no one hears the words “you have cancer.” Please join us in the fight – donate to our team, or join our team, and help us save more lives!
Peace & Love, Ginny Ackiewicz
