I’m Jeanette and I live in Upper St Clair with my husband, 3rd grade daughter, and 3 cats. I’m 39 and a Girl Scout troop leader, marketing manager, D&D player, and love to garden and hike!

I was diagnosed with gastrointestinal stromal tumor in April 2022. I had abdominal surgery the following week. Almost a year later, my CT scans are still clear and I am taking Gleevec every day with very minor side effects, thank goodness! Life is starting to feel much more normal again–but before surgery I was in the best shape of my life and now I am very much *not* in shape. My goal is to improve my endurance and strength again so I can get back to being in my “prime.” 🙂
