Jenna Hinman : Mom dies of placental cancer

On Monday, May 5, wife and mother Jenna Hinman from upstate New York died at the age of just 26 years old. She had been diagnosed with a rare placental cancer but was still able to give birth to her twin girls, Kinleigh and Azlynn on March 3. The baby girls were delivered nine weeks early by an emergency C-section and weighed only 9 pounds but are doing well.

Hinman, 26, and her husband, U.S. Army Sgt. Brandon Hinman of Fort Drum, received an outpouring of community support after the family shared their story with the public. Doctors discovered Jenna Hinman’s cancer in March after she gave birth to twin girls via emergency C-section. She had stage 3 choriocarcinoma.

Maffei met the family during a hospital visit he made at the request of Crouse Hospital. Family members gave him a “Prayers for Jenna” bracelet that he held up on the House floor during his speech today.

“Jenna and her family’s stories touched the lives of so many people, strangers and friends alike from around the world, who were devastated to hear of Jenna’s passing,” Maffei said. “There is no way to truly express the deep sadness that comes from losing someone so young with such a bright future ahead.”

An emotional Maffei, who is expecting the birth of his first child in June, said, “I pray that God will protect Jenna’s husband, her parents, her brother, and particularly these young girls. And may God bless Jenna Hinman, a true American hero.”
