We are extremely saddened to say that on January 28, 2020, Jennifer Toth passed away. Jennifer was a valued member of the bladder and lung cancer communities, an incredible advocate and avid writer. We are so honored that Jennifer shared her story and so much of her experience with our community. She will be deeply missed.
Jennifer Toth, a mom of 7 grown children, was working full time and part time as a freelance writer when lung cancer came knocking at the door in January 2014. Since that day she has had surgery to remove both left lung lobes, chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. She is currently receiving Opdivo every two weeks to treat metastasis to her lymph nodes and right upper lung lobe.
In 2017, Jennifer was diagnosed with a secondary cancer – bladder cancer. Again, surgery and chemotherapy became her routine. She now receives treatment for both. Jennifer lost her mother, 4 aunts/uncles, and 2 grandparents to cancer. She now spends her time being an advocate and mentor to patients in the lung cancer and bladder cancer communities and continues her freelance writing to help educate others on how these two separate cancers effects the individual as well as their family.
