On Thursday July 27th Jenna was told she had a brain tumor.  She is 25 , was about to get married in 3 months and has a beautiful 4 1/2 yr. old daughter, but because of the man she loves and her loving family, she married the man of her dreams on July 31st. On Monday August 7th her long journey begins, she will be admitted to Regions Hospital. Surgery will begin at 1pm on Tuesday August 8th to remove as much as they can safely of a plum-sized tumor which is attached to many blood vessels, the surgery will take 5-7 hours, they will try to remove the rest by radiation. Her recovery will be about 3 months. The tumor is benign, but could possibly grow back. The surgery has a low risk of death, but a high risk of paralysis.
