Pregnant Mother Navigates Care During COVID-19 Lockdown and Celebrates Her Miracle Baby

In this month’s Inspiration Story, read Jenna’s remarkable story of discovering an ependymoma diagnosis while she was pregnant and how navigating care during the COVID-19 lockdown added challenge and concern for her entire family.
“I went to sleep for my laminectomy wondering whether I would wake up still pregnant. When I woke up, and they told me that everything was okay with the baby, I cried.”

The CERN Foundation and the National Brain Tumor Society have joined forces to help people with ependymoma and advance ependymoma research toward the development of new and better treatments through the creation of the Ependymoma Fund for Research and Education. Today, the CERN Foundation is officially a designated program of the National Brain Tumor Society. Donations to the Ependymoma Fund for Research and Education will be made on the NBTS website and used to support research efforts that will benefit both ependymoma patients and research through CERN. Emphasis will be placed on CERN’s historical model of supporting work that translates basic science into clinical practice. The Fund will also address overcoming barriers to clinical trial accrual and the development of new clinical studies for ependymoma patients. Additional funds will be used to support educational efforts through print, media, and awareness events. The new collaborative Ependymoma Fund will continue CERN’s practice and tradition of involving and collaborating with other scientists, medical providers, foundations and supporters of ependymoma research.
