On October 1st 2015, Jessica was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. The cancer has spread throughout her spine and bones and into her liver. The doctors gave her 2 to 3 years to live if she follows an aggressive chemotherapy regimen for the remainder of her life. They said she would live less than two months if she opts out of chemo. Knowing the quality of life that comes with these chemo treatments, and staying true to her belief that the body can heal itself if it's given the proper tools - she has decided not to pursue chemotherapy.
