Without question, she switched up her life plans to care for me and has been by my side for needle pricks, blood drops, x-ray, fallen hairs and sleepless nights.
I was overwhelmed with her strength, compassion and eternal love.
Trust me, I'm not the easiest patient to take care of.
She is why I wanted to fight like hell and stay alive.
So as a couple you should both sit down and make boundaries that apply to each other and to family!
That will help avoid so many fights later and something I wish E and I would have done. It's important to be completely open and fearless when it comes to communication. Talk it out, hug, see a shrink, text each other, hurl marshmallows.
Do you have advice for other couples going through a similar journey like yours together? And actually Ethan and I are working on a book at this time that will kind of be a couples "survival" guide to making it through any type of tragedy or life change together.
The book will have a ton of advice, exercises, and our life experiences we have been through that helped us form the book.
Cancer is not a solo mission, I needed Jenna to survive. The two started dating shortly after Jenna's win.But in 2009, when Ethan was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, the two found themselves facing challenges that were far tougher than anything they dealt with on reality TV.You have to be the pillar of strength even when you feel like you are crumbling to pieces inside.I was the ying to Ethan's yang, or vice versa depending on the day.She's made it her goal to raise ,000 to benefit LLS by May 19, which happens to be her mother's birthday.
