Jessica was diagnosed with aggressive stage 3 breast cancer in July 2017, while she was 28 weeks pregnant and raising her toddler son, Jupiter. She had her surgery on August 3rd and gave birth to baby Phoenix on October 24th. Since giving birth, she had her port implanted November 28th and has undergone chemotherapy and radiation treatments since December 1st. She will start her next round of chemo in about a week, and looks forward to returning to work in August 2018. There is a pizza & beer fundraiser in DE for her and the children on February 24th, 2018 and help can also be given here with your financial contribution.
With Love & Gratitude,
Melissa D'Ortenzio & Family
