my cancer journey

Two years after surviving a massive heart attack, a heart transplant and a leg amputation at age 16, Jessica Melore found a lump on her neck and was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). After months of treatment, Jessica's cancer was in remission. Then, six years later, another lump turned out to be a different form of NHL. Jessica told herself she'd been through cancer once before and there was no reason she couldn't beat it again. By January 2008 she was back in remission, and finished treatment that May. She's since become the youngest member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) New Jersey Board of Directors.
