Story

Symptom

On April 12th, 2021 Jovita confided to Channel 2′s Justin Farmer that she wasn’t feeling great.

“I was really concerned about why all of a sudden I was forgetful, disoriented, and just not feeling myself. Feeling like I was in a fog and really wanting to get out of that fog,” Jovita said.

Later that evening as she walked through the grocery store parking lot, she realized it was more than just not feeling well.

“It was a blessing in disguise that I almost passed out walking into Publix,” Jovita said. “I was walking. I remember walking across the parking lot and feeling like I wasn’t going to make it to the door. I was almost like walking in quicksand.”

Brain Scan

Jovita underwent an MRI.

A scan of her brain revealed two small masses.

“It’s significant. It’s gonna be a lot,” Jovita said. “We had to immediately start having a conversation about what that was and what that meant.”

Treatment & Prognosis

Her neurosurgeon Dr. Edjah Nduom said he and his team are crafting a plan of action.

“I can tell you Jovita is upbeat, optimistic, and feels surrounded by love. All of those things feed into someone being in a good place to recover. People who are functioning very well at a time they’re faced with this tend to do better,” Nduom said.

Recovery from the surgery will last 8-10 weeks.

“Not sure when I’ll be back on air but when I’m able, I will be,” she said.

Community

Jovita said she has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from the community.

I know we have great viewers. I know that the prayer warriors are gonna be at work,” Jovita said. “I just felt like it was something I needed to share. I didn’t want to just disappear from air for a couple of months and I wanted people to know what was going on. Also, I want to feel that energy, that outpouring, and that support as well. I know they’re gonna bring it.
