Jennette McCurdy opened up to her fans in a self-written article published in The Wall Street Journal. When Jennette was only 2 years old, her mother was diagnosed with cancer. And to this day, it's an ongoing battle. But Jennette found her own personal peace through sharing her story with the world. And her heartfelt words were an inspiration to readers across the country.
Jennette wrote, "I am thankful that I've recently been able to discuss my mother's cancer with her more openly. Though the conversation may be difficult, I understand how important it is to have that opportunity to discuss this with her because it provides a better sense of understanding and compassion."
Jennette also spoke out about how life in the spotlight isn't always what it seems. She explained, "If you're reading this and you were one of those people who thought, "young actors have perfect lives," I hope that you will think differently now. We do have challenges. We do cry. We are experiencing difficult things. But we will continue to smile and crack jokes because, as entertainers, even if we're privately struggling with painful trials, our job is to make others forget theirs."
