Hello friends and family! Jackie has chosen Caring Bridge as a way to keep everyone updated as she goes through the fight of her life.
A quick summary: After a routine mammogram in late August 2019, Jackie was diagnosed with breast cancer in one breast on September 24, 2019. Genetic testing has revealed that there's a significant risk of the cancer returning and/or appearing in the other breast in the future. Because of this, Jackie and her husband have made the difficult decision to perform a double mastectomy, removing both breasts and 100% eliminating these possibilities. The surgery will be done on Monday, November 11.
