Husband of Jenna Hinman called back to active duty as she battles cancer

Brandon and Jenna Hinman

A difficult day for the Hinman family, as Brandon Hinman, the husband of Jenna and father of two new twin baby girls, has been called back to active duty.

The news was posted on the â??Prayers for Jennaâ?? Facebook page, saying Brandon must report to Fort Drum. At this time, the family is not sure what his duty will entail. Brandonâ??s wife, Jenna, has been battling choriocarcinoma, a very rare and aggressive cancer. The cancer was found after Jenna delivered her twin baby girls, Azlynn and Kinleigh. Jennaâ??s initial treatment required her to be in a medically-induced coma as doctors decided how to treat the cancer. The babies are home, but Jenna is still at Crouse Hospital.

The Facebook page had this to say of Brandonâ??s deployment: â??We want to acknowledge and thank SGT Brandon Hinman for his dedicated service to the United States of America, which has undoubtedly helped to shape him into the pillar of strength he's been for his family and provide him with the courage he's had during this horrific time in his personal life.â??
