It also provided some much-needed distraction as Jenni finished up her chemo last spring.
Unfortunately, exploratory surgery in July at MD Anderson in Houston revealed that some cancer remained. Doctors were unsure if the previous treatment hadn't gotten all of it or if the cancer had returned.
Jenni started another round of chemo in September, and earlier this week, the Kufahls returned to MD Anderson and learned that Jenni will need a challenging surgery in January.

“It's a memory,” Heath said, “that we'll always have.”
