WAXHAW, NC (WBTV) - Jenn Andrews is a Waxhaw mom who found a tumor during a pedicure. The tumor was eventually declared cancerous.
After a few years of surgeries and continuous maintenance, the health/wellness coach decided to amputate the limb.
This new video is Jenn showing her prosthetic to her kids, ages 3 and 4.
Jenn and I met recently at a cancer event. She was upbeat and honest. She said she sought lots of medical opinions before deciding to amputate.
"When my kids first saw my leg and had questions, I explained to them that before my surgery my foot was sick, and the doctor was going to replace it with a superhero foot and I'd be OK. That no matter what happens or what I look like, I will always love them and be the same Mommy."
How cool is that?
"My kids haven't missed a beat," she said. "The directness worked. Be real with your kids and they'll react well."
Exactly. Kids will roll.
An incredible inspiration to start the week.
Thank you, Jenn.
