Survivorship: Week-long series. Wednesday: Meet Jennifer

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

We're introducing you to five different women this week affected by breast cancer... Jennifer Wolf is a 33-year-old mother who found her own lump after breast feeding for 3-and-a-half months. 

She’s Stage II, bald and fighting... with three darling young kids who depend on her.

“I was 32 years old when found my lump,” she says. “At the time my kids were ages 4, 2 and newborn.”

Jennifer has had chemo, radiation and surgery. She is still undergoing treatments and will be until next month. She says she has a strong network of people helping her, keeping her steady.

"Everyone's been so supportive and my husband has been amazing,” she said. “He's been my rock through this whole thing."

Not every day is easy.

"You have those days when you don't feel that well,” she said. “But my fighting force is and was my kids. I didn't want them to say, 'What's wrong with Mommy? She doesn't feel good.' So we tried to keep it as positive as we possibly could."

This will be Jennifer's first year at Komen Charlotte Race for the Cure. She knows she'll see other women there just like her - bald and fighting tough.

“As long as I’m there healthy and living to watch my kids grow old and grey, I could care less about my hair," she says with a smile.

WBTV has a team again this year – we’d love to have you join us Saturday, October 1st. For a $35 registration fee you get two t-shirts (a Komen shirt and a WBTV “Team Molly” shirt) and are registered as part of our team.
