Family and friends of the beloved YouTube star and mother of two in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., are expressing concern after recent doctor reports suggest Jenny Appleford may only have days to be reunited with her family. This is sad. Jenny Appleford was diagnosed with non-smoker lung cancer in 2021. Kylie Lamb’s beloved wife was devastated and devastated when she heard the news.
She created a YouTube channel to document her experiences with the world. Jenny Apple has truly touched many lives through her YouTube channel. In February 2022, Jenny announced that the deadly disease had now been upgraded to stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (which has spread to the brain, other parts of the lungs, and lymph nodes).
Sadly, a few days ago Jenny Apple, flanked by her husband, revealed that the latest doctor’s reports indicate she may only have days left to be reunited with her family. In the emotional YouTube video, Jenny encourages her husband to “allow Kelly to fall in love and remarry,” Jenny said.
Jenny Apploford was diagnosed with cancer on March 19, 2021, after she developed unrelieved rib pain and developed shortness of breath. Jenny had to advocate for a diagnostic scan because doctors at her previous hospital did not believe that a healthy 33-year-old young woman could develop a serious disease.
The initial diagnosis was inoperable stage III adenocarcinoma lung cancer. Jenny had to change insurance providers to receive treatment at City of Hope Cancer Hospital. Changing insurance is stressful and costs $870 per month, not including any costs associated with treatments, scans, hospitalizations, etc. Jenny completed her first round of treatment, which included 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiation treatments to her chest/lungs, in June 2021.
At the end of the first treatment, due to esophageal burns caused by radiation therapy, Jenny was unable to eat and could only eat liquids. Jenny’s second treatment is to start an immunotherapy (Imfinzi) infusion next year. Unfortunately, after her first dose of immunotherapy in August 2021, she suffered a rare severe drug reaction that forced her to stay hospitalized at City of Hope for 15 days.
Jenny is still taking steroids and preventive antibiotics to control the reaction, but the reaction has delayed additional treatment. In December 2021, Jenny had many small spots on her CT scan, so she was evaluated by a pulmonologist, and a lung liquid biopsy/lung wash was performed. On February 25, 2022, a lung liquid biopsy/lung wash revealed new cancer cells. Jenny then underwent a new diagnostic CT, brain MRI, and PET scan to determine the extent of the new cancer.
As of the time of this article’s publication, Jenny was alive and spending her final days in the hospital with her husband and children by her side, as she was reportedly too fragile for them to move her to her home.
