Have you ever met someone with a truly inspiring story that touched your life in ways you never thought you could imagine? I have. And that someone is named Jamie Jenkins. Jamie is currently battling stage 4 breast cancer called infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the right breast, metastatic to the liver. I met Jamie last week at a red carpet movie premier in Hollywood and although it was only the first time I had met her I felt like I had known her for years. She is the pure definition of strength, beauty and determination all built into one. Jamie had chemo the very next day but it didn’t stop her from dressing up and enjoying a night out on the town with her friends. She even took a photo of herself on the red carpet that would make anyone smile. Jamie also has the warmest embrace. You can feel her spirit simply through her hugs.

Let’s face it, cancer affects everyone and in honor of Mother’s Day and Aflac has decided to help support the fight against childhood cancer. Aflac is donating $2 to the Aflac Cancer Center for every post or tweet of former Aflac Cancer Center patient Trisha Henry Gaffney using the #Duckprints hashtag.
On Valentine’s Day 1996, 19-year-old Trisha was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive tumor usually found in the head, neck, hands or feet of young children. Trisha’s was the first reported case to occur in the right ureter, the tube connecting the kidney and bladder. After going through surgery to remove her right kidney, ureter and a portion of her bladder, Trisha spent a year at the Aflac Cancer Center undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. Following her treatment for this rare form of cancer, Trisha Henry Gaffney was eager to put her health problems behind her.
If you are interested helping raise both awareness and funds for childhood cancer I urge you to get involved in the #duckprints campaign. Now through Mother’s Day Aflac will donate $2 to the Aflac Cancer Center for every tweet/retweet, or post/share on Twitter or Facebook using the #Duckprints hashtag.
