Meet the family of social media influencer Jenny Appleford.
In October 2023, Jenny broke the heartwrenching news that she was living her last days as a cancer patient to her fans via YouTube Live. Let us shed some light on the people who have seen her in her best and worst days and were fighting alongside her in this ordeal.
Here we bring you information about her mother, father, husband, and siblings. So, tag along and read all that we know about them.
Jenny Appleford Family
Jenny Appleford belongs to a family of five who live in Alta Loma, California. She was born on 6 June 1987 which makes her 36 years of age.
Her parents are named Warren and Karen Woodall. She has one sister named Ashley Horton and a brother named Michael Woodall.
When opening up about being diagnosed with cancer, Jenny saw the beacon of hope through her family. In June 2021, Jenny posted on her Facebook, “With the help of family, friends, and doctors, I’ve learned that cancer does not need to equal death and that I had a chance to possibly beat cancer. This was so foreign to my brain because of the pain cancer caused me in the past. Knowing that I had an opportunity to battle cancer and possibly have more time with my family meant so much to me. I knew that I would fight as hard as I could… and I have.”
In parts, she added, “Seeing my babies smile, my husband’s love for them— as well as for me, and the incredible amount of support I have received from family, friends, neighbors, and strangers helps me live with cancer. Life with cancer seems a little less difficult now. I know that I have a rough path ahead, but I can always count on finding the glasses again and knowing that I am surrounded by people who are constantly willing to help me find them.”
Furthermore, Jenny was one of the three children born to Karen and Warren. She has one older brother named Michael Woodall.
When Michael turned 30 in August 2014, Karen posted, “My precious firstborn child turns 30 today! You have been and still are an amazing son and friend! You are simply said a blessing sent from heaven! I love you, son! Happy birthday!”
Hence, in 2023, Michael is 39 years of age.
Then there is her sister Ashley Horton who has been very supportive throughout her cancer journey. Ashley who was born in October 1988 turned 35 in 2023. She started a GoFundMe page for Jenny in March 2022 after lung cancer materialized to her brain. In June 2023, she provided updates on the GFM page.
She wrote, “Unfortunately, in May 2023 Jenny’s scan revealed cancer progression and a reoccurrence of the pleural effusion which meant it was time to end the clinical trial medication. Jenny has also had 3 new small brain lesions found on a recent brain MRI, and the lesions are continuing to be monitored by her oncology team. Jenny’s oncology team has started Jenny on an FDA-approved target drug for her specific gene mutation.”
But, Ashley was gratified that Jenny’s YouTube family has grown “and has been a huge source of strength for her through this cancer journey. The gratitude I have for her YouTube family is indescribable. Jenny’s YouTube family has given her hope when times were dark, encouragement when she has been defeated, and love when she needed it most. So, thank you for your continuous support to Jenny and Kyle, you all have been such a driving force to help her keep fighting this cancer.”
The GoFundMe page raised $155,164 out of the $100,000 goal.
Fun Fact: Jenny and Ashley got married on the same day (26 July 2014) to their respective spouses. You can check out the video of their wedding via the link.
