Life’s a Polyp
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States

Jenny was diagnosed with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis when she was 8 years old. An individual with FAP is destined to develop cancer at some point in their lifetime, which is why preventative treatment is crucial. She has a family history of FAP. She and her mother are the last survivors in their family with FAP. She had a temporary ileostomy at age 9 and 4 subsequent surgeries, lived with an ileostomy for 6 years and then had a pull-through surgery.

Jenny’s health has now stabilized and she was able to graduate with a Masters degree and maintained full time employment, and is enjoying life as well as discovering new challenges for herself everyday. She runs a blog ”Life’s A Polyp”.
