Jessica Moore was a nurse at a skilled care unit. She embodied the word “care”, dedicated her life as a healthcare worker to helping others and was even recognized with the “Caregiver of the Year” award by the organization that she worked for. At the age of 32, she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and passed away from the disease less than 4 years later.
During her treatment, her family and friends formed the Moore Fight Moore Strong (MFMS) organization to shine a light on the need for MBC awareness & research. Jess was a Metastatic Breast Cancer advocate and shared her story to help others. Her blog is provided below.
Prior to being diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) Jess was already a breast cancer advocate. She participated in many charitable fundraising events. Her hope was always to help raise breast cancer awareness and find a cure, or at the very least make it a lifelong manageable disease; 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 30% of survivors develop a recurrence that is often Metastatic Breast Cancer.
