This is truly heartbreaking and terrifying!
Jenna Hinman and her hubby U.S. Army Sgt. Brandon Hinman were so excited to meet their twin baby girls, but on March 3rd all of that changed.
The pregnant momma was rushed to Crouse Hospital in Syracuse, where they thought she had pneumonia, but found out she was suffering from choriocarcinoma, which is a rare pregnancy-related cancer.
Babies Kinleigh and Azlynn were delivered via C-section nine weeks early because they doctors feared for their lives. Both three-pound babies are healthy, but mom started coughing up blood shortly after they were born.
The doctors diagnosed her with choriocarcinoma, which starts in the placenta and spreads so quickly that it had filled up Jenna’s lungs with tumors.
So, the doctors put her in a medically-induced coma, because as the hospital oncologist described it:
"Her lungs are so involved with tumor that they don't work. And right now they're not working at all."
Now for the worst part. Jenna’s treatments, which require the blood in her body to be removed, oxygenated, and pumped back, will cost the family $100,000 a day!
So, new daddy Brandon has set up a page on GoFundMe.com, where people can help out and donate. He’s holding out hope that Jenna will kick cancer’s a$$ and said:
"I walked up to her bed and grabbed her hand and said 'honey it's me. I love you, you're doing great.' And as I was talking she shook her head yes. My hope is that my wife stands up, holds my hand, we have the girls and we walk out of this hospital.”
That’s our hope too, and everyone who donated, which has already reached $61,000!
