Jene R.

Jené was born on June 24, 1992. She is the older sister of Alexis and the daughter of Kytt. Jené’s mother loves “her beautiful smile. She is so funny at times. She has a great sense of humor and makes all her friends laugh.”

Jené has osteosarcoma in her right leg, underwent an amputation in July 2010, only to have the cancer spread to both her lungs six months later. After another surgery, the cancer returned in March 2011.

Yet in spite of everything, her mother says, “She doesn’t let the cancer get in the way of her humor.”
