Jen was a busy mom and an entrepreneur when she found out she had stage two breast cancer. Rather than a wake-up call, it became one more thing she had to fit into her already packed schedule.
A couple of years later, Jen was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and given a dismal prognosis. Through her faith and resilience, Jen embraces what lies in-between planning and uncertainty, good days and bad days, and ultimately in-between life and death.
The In-Between is Everything is a celebration of resilience in the face of knowing what is to come - the choice to continue to give, and battle the odds through every uncertain day.
