Sweet Jadyn is 9 years old and a three time cancer survivor! In the last three-and-a-half years, Jadyn has shown more strength, determination, acceptance and compassion than I ever thought possible of a child so young. She is my hero through no choice of her own.
Jadyn has had three major brain surgeries, 93 rounds of radiation, over three months of chemo, four eye surgeries, countless weeks in the hospital and so many pokes I've lost count. And yet she is always smiling and happy :)
Jadyn finished treatment for her most recent fight on February 17th, 2012 and is very excited to be able to come to California!
We ARE 46 Mommas on a mission to raise awareness, raise funds for research and inspire others to help fund a cure for childhood cancer.
Each year a new class of 46 Mommas is inducted into the cause to empower and engage mothers of children with cancer. The number 46 is significant. On average, each weekday, 46 families receive the news that their child has cancer. Through increasing awareness of childhood cancer and raising funds for childhood cancer research by shaving our heads, we hope to one day be a group that no longer needs to exist.
