ATLANTA - Jenn Hobby's adorable daughter, Reese, celebrated a special milestone this week... her second birthday!
This time last year, Reese was battling cancer and undergoing chemotherapy at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Aflac Cancer Center at Egleston. In August 2016, doctors discovered a plum-sized, solid mass tumor in Reese's abdomen, on the base of her spine.
After four rounds of chemotherapy and a successful surgery, Hobby's brave baby was able to walk out of the hospital tumor-free, just in time for Christmas. Then, on January 20 this year, Hobby announced Reese was no longer showing signs of cancer.
She's been cancer-free for eight months now - and on Monday, September 18, Reese celebrated her birthday with a huge smile on her face! According to The Jeff and Jenn Show's website, the toddler shares a birthday with her grandmother. View a sweet photo of them here.
"May all of your most GIGANTIC wishes come true, Reese! Happy 2nd birthday to the strongest girl I know," Hobby said on Facebook, sharing a photo of the toddler in front of her birthday cake. "I am in awe of you, sweet baby."
The Atlanta radio personality also shared a birthday photo of her daughter on Twitter.
