Jessica Davies

Jessica was diagnosed at age 40 and is grateful for previous research and onco-testing which indicated she would not benefit from chemotherapy, allowing her to “return to work and life quickly, and spare my teenagers from watching me suffer.” She feels blessed to have had a short and uncomplicated journey so far and yet acknowledges that her diagnosis has impacted her daily life—”From the beginning: seeking education and being well informed. In the midst of my treatment: gathering strength from family and friends. With treatment behind me: daily commitment to exercise, eating well and experiencing daily joy.” She sees her participation in Rare Chair Affair as a way to be “with a group of strong women to celebrate being on the other side of treatment.”
