“So grateful to this resilient body who keeps taking the beating and despite all the scars from surgeries and drug infusions, still allows me to function and fulfill my purpose on Earth and make beautiful memories with loved ones. Thankful beyond words to still be alive today and all the days I get to wake up to keep breathing and thriving,” Jaymee wrote on Instagram.
