A few weeks ago, I blogged about a fellow photographer, whom I’ve never met, but her story touched my heart. She is a 36 year old single mother and photographer and she is battling Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer.
In the weeks since that post, Jen Burgess Thompson went in for a clinical trial and was flown last week to Miami in critical condition. She needs all the prayers and positive thoughts we can send her way today as she fights for her life. She needs a miracle.
Here is an update from one of her friends, Cheryl McNabb:
“Hello everyone, I just left the hospital a little while I ago and I have to tell you that I left in tears. The situation is critical and it is a very challenging time for Jen and her family right now. She will have surgery in the morning to put a stint into her other kidney. She will then have another surgery on Friday where they hope to find the blockage. They will then be able to determine if/how far “Herm” has infiltrated the rest of her organs. This will be a vitally important surgery and to be honest, the doctor was not as positive as we were hoping.
Thank you guys so much I know Jen truly appreciates everything everyone has done for her. She is full of love and has an amazing spirit.”
