#PrepWIthPurpose - July 5, 2016: Jenny Chu

For backstory on what #PrepWithPurpose is all about please read the blog entry and/or Instagram Post.

Hey Friends,

When a holiday falls on Monday it always throws me off! Then add traveling and all the excitement from the weekend ... and it certainly doesn't feel like it could already be Tuesday! But it is and it's time to rise .. grind .. and map out a plan. Talked to my coach and will be making a decision in the coming days as to what my first PRO SHOW will be!! I still can't believe the word PRO and my name now go together!!!

But as I mentioned yesterday .. Prep With Purpose will continue as long as I have people sending me requests!

Today we are lifting up and for a young woman that lives here in Vegas and is going into surgery today for a double mastectomy. Thanks to my friend Maysa for sending this my way!

Prep With Purpose -- July 5th, 2016: Jenny Chu

In March, 30 year old Jenny Chu was told she had breast cancer. She found a lump on her breast, had it checked out and that little lump ended up being papillary carcinoma. This was devastating for Jenny to grasp, that someone so young, athletic, and healthy with no prior family history of cancer could be diagnosed with something so serious and harmful. Being the strong person she is, she tried her best to be brave. Three weeks later, she underwent a lumpectomy, duct excision, and a sentinel node biopsy. Her doctor determined that her margins were not clear along with the discovery that she has DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ). After her journey of meeting with several specialized doctors, the consensual agreement was that Jenny must undergo a double mastectomy.  ((For more details you can see the video she posted on FACEBOOK. She has posted several updates on her page since then. For more details check it out.))

I am making Jenny today's PREP WITH PURPOSE because is going under the knife TODAY!! Let's lift up and for this beautiful, vibrant, brave young woman!

Jenny worked throughout her surgeries and treatments but still has endless medical bills. To help, she has set up a go fund me page. You can find it here. As I've stated before when it comes to donation pages, I can not personally vouch for them unless I know the person. I do not know Jenny .. but am posting the link in case you feel led to donate!

Jenny I hope you feel the love today and that you recover quickly! I will be both working out and sprinting FOR YOU today ... lifting you up the entire time!


I hope you are joining me on this PREP WITH PURPOSE journey! If you are ... please post/share and use the hashtag #PrepWithPurpose! Let's get a huge prayer chain going and in the process maybe make the sport of bodybuilding less about "me, me, me" and a little more about helping others! Our motivation doesn't have to come from ONLY ourselves!

If you know anyone that needs urgent or ongoing prayer for any physical reason please email me all the information and a picture (or a few) to simplystacyfitness@yahoo.com.
