Meal train info for Feb 2020 is here:

Backstory:  In January 2017 Jenni was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which presented as rapid abdominal swelling (minimally apparent on Dec 26, "full-term pregnancy" size 16 days later). Once diagnosed she started 8 months of chemo (hyper-CVAD protocol), which eradicated the tumor, and 2 years later, she remained tumor free. However, in late January 2020, Jenni was hospitalized with shortness of breath and heart failure, due to acute myeloid leukemia induced by one of the hyper-CVAD drugs.  She is currently receiving chemo and will likely need a bone marrow transplant.

Current status: Under treatment.
