Jessica was a nurse of a skilled care unit in a local facility. She embodied the word 'care', and dedicated her life and career to helping others. She enjoyed spending quality time with her family and friends, staying active in sports, and spending the summer camping. In 2012 she received a national honor of Caregiver of the Year by the organization that she works for.
Prior to being diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) Jess was already working toward a cure through her participation in many charitable fundraising events such as Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Her hope was always to help raise breast cancer awareness and find a cure; 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
Jess created a blog to share her MBC journey. Check it out below!
