Jacqui Jeras' Family Has History Of Breast Cancer
Living life with a loving family and a wonderful job it seems like Jacqui doesn’t have anything to worry about.
But one thing had been upsetting her for a long time and it was breast cancer which is hereditary among the females in her family. Her mother and two aunts are the survivors of it but sadly her grandmother had lost the battle.
After her own sister got diagnosed with breast cancer which had advanced to stage three, she became more conscious about her health too. So in 2013, she underwent a preventive double mastectomy which reduced her risk of getting breast cancer by 3%.
Well, prevention surely is better than cure, good going for Jacqui!
