Jeremy and Mendy married on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2007. Just two months after they were married, Mendy was diagnosed with breast cancer. After having a bilateral mastectomy, she started chemotherapy and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for 5 years. Shortly after stopping HRT they met with her oncologist for a follow-up appointment and received the devastating news that the cancer had returned – Stage 4.
Jeremy and Mendy have 3 kids ages 12, 16, and 20. April 16th will mark her 10-year battle with breast cancer! Mendy is the most positive and uplifting person you will meet. She is a fighter!
In honor of Mendy’s 10 year battle, her husband and son have started race team – “Miles for Mendy” to celebrate her journey and spread awareness about Stage 4 Breast Cancer.
