WKYT News: Move For Jenn Foundation Ends 2019 on a High Note

The Move For Jenn Foundation ends 2019 on a high note by issuing a grant to their first pediatric cancer survivor, 15-year old Harleigh Spartman.  "I knew I would never be able to afford it for her," Angela [Harleigh's mother] said. "And I'm just so happy. That's the only thing she hasn't been able to conquer-- is running. And she wants to run so bad."

The Charlotte Observer: Featuring Jenn Andrews

Since Jenn lost her right foot and lower leg to sarcoma 21 months ago, she has been an idol in the cancer community, representing amputee fitness and sarcoma survivors worldwide. As an amputee woman, her goal is to encourage other amputees and give them hope that despite the hardship of losing a limb, they can recover, move on successfully, and resume life with the help of prosthetic solutions.

Most Days, I Feel Like a Survivor. Today, I Felt Like a Cancer Patient.

Being a 2-time cancer survivor and an amputee is not always about empowering posts, challenging myself, smiles and running blades. Honestly, writing out that sentence doesn’t seem real. How can that actually be a description of my life? There are parts of this process that are still really hard.

Sarcoma Amputee: What It’s Like To Offer Amputee Support to other Cancer Survivors

Since being thrown into the world of amputation and prosthetics in 2018, I have learned so much and have met so many amazing amputees along the way. I wanted to use my story to make a difference. Prior to my amputation, I didn’t know a single person who had been through an amputation. My journey wasn’t easy, but no one said it would be.

A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing experience and takes us on a journey. Everyone’s journey has a unique story, and there really isn’t any “right” way to face cancer. For this month’s featured Sarcoma Survivor story, we chose to highlight Lauren Harback from Johnson City, TN.

Sarcoma Survivor Stories - Meet Lauren Harback

I was diagnosed with cancer on my 31st birthday. At first, I was shocked, but then I started to think about my family. My husband and I have only been married a short time and I knew I wanted to celebrate many more anniversaries with him. We also have a 5-year-old daughter who has so many things to experience that I want to be a part of.
