Founder & Chief Advocate of “Feel for Your Life”

At 33, Jessica was taking a shower one day when she discovered a lump in her breast. Nearly four months later, Jessica was diagnosed with Stage 2B invasive ductile carcinoma.

After 16 rounds of chemo, 24 rounds of radiation, a double mastectomy, a hysterectomy, and a 10-hour reconstruction surgery, Jessica celebrates life in remission by encouraging other women to be their own best advocates through her projects with “Feel for Your Life.”

“Feel for Your Life” is a social media outreach project that includes an app Jessica developed to educate about breast cancer and encourage regular self-breast exams and connect its users with a compassionate community.  She is also a Community Ambassador for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
