Here is her story...
Well, here it is, July 24, 2018 and what a roller coaster type of day it has been. Let me start by introducing myself to anyone who doesn’t personally know me, my name is Jessica Leisey, but some call me Jess. I am Ron’s wife and the mother of our two beautiful daughters, Charlie age 10 and Maggie-Ann, who was born just a few weeks ago, she was almost our 4th of July baby. I am also a daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. Today, well, where do I start... I guess by saying that today is the first day of the rest of my life, literally it truly is. Today is the day that I was told that I have untreatable terminal cancer that has spread through my entire body, so you see...I’m really not sure how much of a life I have left but I do know that I’m going to make the most of it the best I can, making memories and sharing precious moments with my beautiful daughters and loved ones for as long as I’m able, which I truly hope is for a very long time.
I am tired of being in the hospital and I just I want to go home. I came in through the ER a little over a week ago for what we thought was just a pinched sciatic nerve that was very painful during my pregnancy and it was assumed that after I had the baby, it would go away, but it didn’t, instead it continued to get worse. I was admitted and after some tests, I was told that it was an infection in the bone and they were going to take me to surgery to relieve the pressure. While in surgery, they also did a biopsy. It came back as inconclusive, so another biopsy was done the next day. It was cancer... yes, that big “C” that word nobody ever wants to hear, that I’ve heard to many times in my family. They did some more scans the next day and they showed that the cancer was also in my stomach and had spread throughout my entire body. Am I scared, you ask...you better believe I am and I find myself trying to figure out why God would bless me with two beautiful baby girls just to take me from them. It just seems so unfair, to me...and to Ron, but mostly to them. They say you’re not supposed to question and that we’re never given more than we can handle, but you know, I kind of do question and I wonder if that is true because I’m sure feeling pretty overwhelmed and scared right now. I do know that I am going to do everything that I can to stay positive and face each day, one day at a time💗
