New Mom Fighting for Her Life After Rare Pregnancy-Related Cancer Discovered Shortly After Giving Birth to Twins

Jenna Hinman, a young mother from Syracuse, New York, is in a battle for her life after being diagnosed with a rare pregnancy-related cancer only moments after she delivered twin girls prematurely.

What should’ve been the happiest time in Jenna Hinman’s  life turned into the unimaginable on March 3. Her husband U.S. Army Sergeant, Brandon Hinman, called 911 when Jenna all of a sudden, couldn’t breathe.  The 26-year-old was rushed to the hospital, and it was immediately determined that she needed an emergency c-section to deliver her twin girls, Kinleigh and Azlynn. The girls weighed in at three pounds each and were nine weeks early.

 Due to the girls fragile state, Jenna was only allowed a quick peek at her twins before they were whisked off to NICI at Crouse Hospital in Syracuse where they had all been transferred. That was the only time she got to see her babies.

Shortly following her delivery, Jenna Hinman began to throw up blood and her breathing troubles greatly worsened.

The doctors initial thoughts were that Jenna was suffering from pneumonia. However, after further testing, she was diagnosed with Choriocarcinoma, a rare form of cancer that had filled her body with tumors and lesions.

On March 6, it was decided that Jenna would be placed in a medically induced coma. Her husband Brandon has been unremittingly at her side supporting her as a team of doctors and specialists work to save her life.  At this time, doctors are treating Jenna with heavy doses of chemotherapy and a machine that breathes for her.

“Her lungs are so involved with tumor that they don’t work. And right now, they’re not working at all” Crouse Hospital oncologist Dr. Wiley Bunn told cnycentral.

In this particular cancer, the disease forms in the placenta and spreads very rapidly. According to Dr. Bunn, it is seen in fewer than one in 160,000 cases.

Jenna’s situation has been extremely touch and go, but last week Dr. David Landsberg woke her up for a brief moment.

“I walked up to her bed and grabbed her hand and said “Honey it’s me. I love you, you’re doing great. And as I was talking, she shook her head yes,” Brandon Hinman said.

“That could be the last time I talk to my wife.”

These days Brandon is doing his best to divide his time between the Intensive Care Unit and the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit spending time with his precious girls assuming the role of both mom and dad.

“My hope is that my wife stands up, holds my hand, we have the girls and we walk out of this hospital,” says Hinman.

The family has set up a fundraiser on the GoFundMe website for “The Hinman Fund” to raise money for the family’s medical expenses.
