“Miracle” isn’t a word that’s used too often in medicine, especially when it comes to rare, aggressive types of cancer. But not every patient is Scott Jenkins.
Diagnosed with sinus cancer in 2015, Jenkins never expected to be alive today. But thanks to his abiding faith, a care team that didn’t give up on him and a novel immunotherapy treatment, Jenkins has beaten seemingly insurmountable odds.
“I’ve gone from being told I have six months to live to getting better. I truly have a new life,” says Jenkins who owns The Ole Fashion Ice Cream Parlor in Surfside Beach, which he opened after moving from Richmond, Virginia, in 2009.
